Educational and Career Confidence and Motivation among Female and Male Undergraduates.
Stake, Jayne E.
American Educational Research Journal, v21 n3 p565-78 Fall 1984
Changes in six measures of achievement-related motivation and confidence were tested in a longitudinal study of 138 women and 96 men during their first year at a midwestern university. Findings suggest that, for these measures, assimilation into the campus environment had a positive effect on men but not on women. (Author/BS)
