Donald, Janet G.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning, n78 p27-35 Sum 1999
A study examined the relative effects of course and program on 39 college students' motivation over a semester-long introductory physics course, a discipline chosen because of its emphasis on higher-order learning. Results include information about student learning motives, changes over time, and student emphasis on different learning goals and outcomes. Implications for both instruction and further research are noted. (MSE)
