Predicting Achievement Early and Late in the Semester: The Role of Motivation and Use of Learning Strategies.
Pokay, Patricia; Blumenfeld, Phyllis C.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v82 n1 p41-50 Mar 1990
Relationships among motivation, use of general and content-specific learning strategies, and achievement were examined for 283 high school geometry students early and late in the semester. Results suggest that teachers should emphasize domain-specific strategies when introducing a unit, and emphasize less domain-specific strategies later in the year. (SLD)
