Meyer, Debra K.; And Others
Elementary School Journal, v97 n5 p501-21 May 1997
Analyses of fifth and sixth graders' challenge seeking during project-based mathematics instruction indicated two patterns: "challenge seekers," who self-reported a tolerance for failure, and a learning goal orientation; and "challenge avoiders," who self-reported a higher negative affect after failure, a more performance-focused goal orientation, lower self-efficacy in math, and greater use of strategies that requiring minimal information processing.
