The Role of Task-Avoidant and Task-Focused Behaviors in the Development of Reading and Mathematical Skills during the First School Year: A Cross-Lagged Longitudinal Study.
Onatsu-Arvilommi, Tiina; Nurmi, Jari-Erik
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n3 p478-91 Sep 2000
Study examines whether children's achievement strategies predict their improvement in reading and mathematical skills during the first school year, or whether the skills predict the change in their achievement strategies. Results indicate that task-avoidant behaviors decreased subsequent improvement in reading skills, and that a low level of reading skills increased subsequent task-avoidant behaviors.
