Journal of Educational Psychology, v95 n2 p375-92 Jun 2003

Results supported model in which internal locus and volition, but not perceived choice, constitute valid indicators of self-determination. Discusses conundrum of choice by proposing conditions under which teachers can expect choice to increase students' intrinsic motivation. (Contains 96 references, 8 tables, and 4 figures.) (GCP)
