Repetition Choice Behavior as a Function of Chronological Age, Task Difficulty, and Expectancy of Success
Young, Eleanor; Egeland, Byron
Child Development, 47, 3, 682-689, Sep 76
When 48 first-, fourth-, and seventh-grade boys (classified as high, moderate, or low on an expectancy of success measure) were given a repetition choice task, a developmental trend in number of children choosing the interrupted task was found. When the task's difficulty level was matched to the child's grade, the trend was not found. (Author/JH)
