Hufton, Neil; Elliott, Julian G.; Illushin, Leonid
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n96 p65-85 Sum 2002
Discusses findings of a cross-cultural study of the relation between self-perception of academic competence and achievement, and attribution of achievement to effort or ability. Considers problems in fitting Anglo-American motivation theory with Russian schooling practice. Calls for culturally sensitive, multimethod approaches in which individual meaning making is emphasized as a key element in gaining greater understanding of motivational contexts. (Author/KB)
