Mitchell, Mathew
Journal of Educational Psychology, v85 n3 p424-36 Sep 1993

Results indicate that it is useful to distinguish between personal and situational interest. In addition, the structure of situational interest appears multifaceted, with five subfacets found in the high school mathematics classroom. (SLD)
