An Annotated Bibliography of the Literature Concerning Students' Adaptive and Maladaptive Behavior Patterns in Response to Failure in Achievement Situations.
Moriarty, Kathleen Pelletier
An examination of the dynamics of academic failure is presented in this monograph in the form of an annotated bibliography of current literature. The writings cited offer a cross-section of research on what factors affect students' choices of adaptive or maladaptive behavior patterns in the classroom and in relation to their peers. Section one of the annotations describes the dynamics of failure-avoidance behaviors and their underlying causes and consequences. The second section presents studies that analyze why students who were judged to be equal in ability respond differently to failure or challenge situations. In the third section, a research-based model demonstrates the relationship between achievement goals and achievement behavior. Following this analysis, educational interventions and classroom practices that foster adaptive and maladaptive patterns are examined. A summary discusses the dynamics of failure-avoidance and acceptance and achievement goals and behavior, and considers the educational implications of the problem. A bibliography is included. (JD)
