The Development and Motivational Function of Expectations.
Bardwell, Rebecca
American Educational Research Journal, v21 n2 p461-72 Sum 1984
Fourth, sixth, and eighth grade students studied a word learning task and were tested on three consecutive days. Expectancy statements were made by half the subjects. These results seemingly contradict previous research, but the contradiction was explained in terms of task complexity. Expectations were found to be motivational. (Author/BW)
