Miller, Samuel D.; Meece, Judith L.
Journal of Educational Research, v90 n5 p286-99 May-Jun 1997
Researchers examined how different reading and language arts assignments influenced third graders' (N=187) motivational goals, strategy use, and achievement affect. Teachers (N=8) modified assignments to increase students' complex writing and peer collaboration. Evaluation indicated students became less focused on teacher approval or normative standards of evaluation but patterns of strategy use or achievement affect were unaffected. (SM)
