Developmental Differences in the Manifestation of Mastery Motivation on Problem-solving Tasks
Harter, Susan
Child Development, 46, 2, 370-378, Jun 75
The relative strength of mastery motivation and need for approval was tested in subjects, ages 4 and 10. Mastery motivation was of major importance to the older children, particularly the boys. Contrary to prediction, approval was not of major importance to the young children. Need for approval was important for girls, but not boys. (Author/CS)
