Psychology of Women Quarterly, 1, 3, 247-257, Spr 77
The literature on motivational and cognitive factors related to the achievement orientation of black women is reviewed. Achievement motivation and fear of success are discussed, and the inconclusiveness of the findings for black women is noted. Limited data concerning black women's expectations for and causal attributions about achievement outcomes are also examined. (Author)
