Smiley, Patricia A.; Dweck, Carol S.
Child Development, v65 n6 p1723-43 Dec 1994
Tested on preschoolers a goal-confidence model for older children that predicts achievement behavior during failure. Found that individual differences in achievement goals emerge very early. Children appeared to have developed a mechanism for selecting learning opportunities prior to formal school experience. (AA)
