Competing Activities and Measures of Intrinsic Motivation.
Wicker, Frank W.; And Others
Journal of Social Psychology, v130 n6 p813-19 Dec 1990
Studies test validity of the instruments used to measure intrinsic motivation. Compares behavioral and self-report measures among undergraduates of intrinsic task interest to momentary mood, long-term motivational orientation, and interest in competing activities. Finds the behavioral measure depends on how treatments affect interest in alternative activities, not just interest in the target activity. (Author/NL)
