Differences in the Motivational Beliefs of Asian American and Non-Asian Students.
Eaton, Martin J.; Dembo, Myron H.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v89 n3 p433-40 Sep 1997
Differences in the motivational beliefs of 154 Asian American and 372 non-Asian ninth graders were studied. Asian Americans' fear of the consequences of academic failure best explained their performance, but this variable least explained results for non-Asian students. Fear of academic failure was a better explanation for Asian Americans than were self-efficacy beliefs. (SLD)
