Examines the hypothesis that students' perceptions of teacher autonomy support, parent attachment, competence, and self-worth would predict motivational orientation and achievement test performance. Results indicate that autonomy support, parent attachment, scholastic competence, and self-worth predicted the academic criterion variables. Scholastic competence was a significant predictor in all of the regression models. (Contains 28 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
