Goal Setting and Performance Among Elementary School Students.
Punnett, Betty Jane
Journal of Educational Research, v80 n1 p40-42 Sep-Oct 1986
The potential effect of goal setting to improve the spelling performance of elementary school students was examined. While results tended to support the hypothesis that the setting of specific and difficult goals improved performance more than simply asking students to do their best, differences in group means were not significant.
