Wentzel, Kathryn R.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v81 n2 p131-42 Jun 1989
Two studies involving 203 and 107 high school students investigated the relationship between adolescent efforts to achieve several academic and non-academic classroom goals, social and task-related standards for performance, and academic achievement. Motivation to achieve socially prescribed and cognitive outcomes was found to be relevant to academic classroom performance. (SLD)
