Murdock, Tamera B.; Anderman, Lynley H.; Hodge, Sheryl A.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v15 n3 p327-51 May 2000
Investigated seventh- and ninth-graders' school context, motivation, and behavior during transition to high school. Found more positive motivational contexts in ninth than seventh grade. Found that seventh-grade discipline referrals, doubts about the economic value of education, and negative expectations of peers and teachers discriminated between least- and better-adjusted high school students.
