Rouse, Kimberly A. Gordon; Austin, James T.
Urban Review, v34 n4 p293-316 Dec 2002
Three studies examined within-ethnic-group variations in the relationship of grade point average and gender to motivation among African American, Hispanic American, and Euro-American students. Survey data revealed patterns of significant within-ethnic-group differences that varied across ethnic groups. In general, males demonstrated more motivation than females, though high-ability African American females showed the most motivation in beliefs about ability, control, and value/importance. (SM)
