Davis, Larry E.; Johnson, Sharon; Cribbs, Julie Miller; Saunders, Jeanne
Journal of Adolescent Research, v17 n3 p223-34 May 2002
Measured 231 African American students' attitudes toward school-year completion, social support for completing the academic year, and their perceptions of personal control over school completion. Examined influence of self-esteem and racial self-esteem on academic goals. Found that theory of planned behavior predicted intentions to complete school year better than grade point averages.
