Vallerand, Robert J.; And Others
Gifted Child Quarterly, v38 n4 p172-75 Fall 1994
Both gifted (n=69) and regular (n=66) French Canadian elementary students were compared for school intrinsic motivation and perceived competence. Results indicated that gifted students perceived themselves as being more competent and intrinsically motivated toward school activities than did regular students. No gender effects were obtained. Results support cognitive evaluation theory. (Author/DB)
