Atkinson's Theory of Achievement Motivation: First Step Toward a Theory of Academic Motivation?
Maehr, Martin L.; Sjogren, Douglas D.
Review of Educational Research, 41, 2, 143-161, Apr 71
Choice-preference and task persistence prediction studies support the theory. However, the results on performance data are less clear. Issues to be resolved are: better measurement instruments, identification of internal-external achievement motivated subjects, long-term achievement, and cross-cultural generalization. There are implications for independent study, ability grouping, programmed instruction. (VW)
