Motivational Processes Affecting Learning.
Dweck, Carol S.
American Psychologist, v41 n10 p1040-8 Oct 1986
Educationally relevant conceptions of motivation are difficult to establish. A research based model of motivational processes can show how goals for cognitive tasks shape reactions to success and failure and how they influence the quality of cognitive performance. This model can aid in designing programs to change maladaptive motivational processes. (Author/VM)
