Students perform better in school to the extent they are able to engage fully, cope adaptively, and bounce back from obstacles and setbacks in their academic work. These three processes, which studies suggest are positively inter-connected, may comprise a self-sustaining system that enables "motivational resilience." Using…

Across Study 1 (298 girls, 287 boys; K-7th grade; 5-12¬†years) and Study 2 (338 girls, 298 boys; 2nd-6th grade; 8-12¬†years),…

Chen, Yi-Hsin; Rendina-Gobioff, Gianna; Dedrick, Robert F. – Online Submission, 2007
Method effects associated with item wording have been explored in a variety of instruments and found that the practice of using positively- and negatively- worded items may introduce systematic measurement errors that disrupt analyses and interpretations of the results. Therefore, the first purpose in the present study was to explore if method…
