The Effects of Instructors' Autonomy Support and Students' Autonomous Motivation on Learning Organic Chemistry: A Self-Determination Theory Perspective.
Black, Aaron E.; Deci, Edward L.
Science Education, v84 n6 p740-56 Nov 2000
Applies self-determination theory to investigate the effects of students' course-specific self-regulation and their perceptions of their instructors' autonomous support on adjustment and academic performance in a college-level organic chemistry course. Hypothesizes that students taking the organic chemistry course for relatively autonomous reasons would lead to greater perceived competence and interest for chemistry. (Contains 26 references.)
