Garcia-Celay, I. Montero; Tapia, J. Alonso
Learning and Instruction, v2 n1 p43-57 Mar 1992
Three models of achievement motivation in the classroom are contrasted. Results with 155 high school students suggest that the model of C. S. Dweck and E. S. Elliott offers a better explanation of the relationships among achievement motivation, attributions, emotional reactions, expectancies, and performance than do the other models. (SLD)
