To Achieve or Not To Achieve: A Self-Regulation Perspective on Adolescents' Academic Decision Making.
Miller, David C.; Byrnes, James P.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v93 n4 p677-85 Dec 2001
This study investigated the utility of the self-regulation model of decision making for explaining and predicting adolescents' academic decision making. Measures included an assessment of decision-making skill; academic goals; select scales of Learning and Study Strategies Inventory; and teacher ratings of achievement behavior. Adolescents' valuing of academic goals and decision-making competency were typically best predictors of academic behavior. (Author)
