Cross-National Differences in Academic Achievement: Beyond Etic Conceptions of Children's Understandings.
Bempechat, Janine; Drago-Severson, Eleanor
Review of Educational Research, v69 n3 p287-314 Fall 1999
Reviews theory and research on cross-national (Asian versus American) differences in academic achievement and shows that current research has made claims about achievement motivation with little regard for contemporary theory and formed broad assumptions about the influence of culture while paying only cursory attention to cultural contexts of learning. (Contains 127 references.) (SLD)
