Church, A. Timothy; Katigbak, Marcia S.
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v23 n1 p40-58 Mar 1992
Comparing self-reported academic motives of 409 male and 511 female Filipino college students and 407 male and 506 female (plus 12 unidentified) U.S. college students indicates that Filipinos rank approval and self-improvement higher and U.S. students rank motives involving performance standards higher. Many gender differences in motives generalize across cultures. (SLD)
