Examined the effects of task variability on academic task performance and task motivation. Low-income African American elementary students completed four types of academic tasks in low- and high-variability contexts, and they were assessed for task motivation in the two variability contexts. Academic task performance and task motivation were superior when tasks were presented with greater variability. (SM)
