Leigh, Nanette M.; McDermott, Paul A.; Perry, Marlo A.
Psychology in the Schools, v39 n4 p353-65 Jul 2002
Presents the design, national standardization, and validation of the Preschool Learning Behaviors Scale. A normative sample (N = 100) of preschoolers yielded distinct and reliable dimensions of Competence Motivation, Attention/Persistence, and Attitude Toward Learning. Correlations demonstrated validity convergence with indices of social skills, divergence from behavior problems, and substantial independence from cognitive ability. Implications and future research are considered. (Contains 68 references and 6 tables.) (GCP)
