Sideridis, Georgios D.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v35 n4 p343-56 Jul-Aug 2002
A study compared motivational determinants of 22 students at-risk for language difficulties (in reading and spelling) and students with high language skills. The at-risk students exhibited significantly lower perceptions of goal importance, intention to achieve, belief strength, outcome evaluation, and normative beliefs, and eventually scored lower in language and mathematics.
