Interest and Learning from Text.
Schiefele, Ulrich
Scientific Studies of Reading, v3 n3 p257-79 1999
Clarifies the concepts of personal and situational interest and their relation to motivation. Presents evidence for substantial relations between interest and text learning. Finds these relations appear to be stronger for deep-level learning than surface-level learning and seem to be largely independent of prior knowledge and cognitive ability. Gives suggestions and guidelines for future research. (SC)
