Interests, Effort, Achievement and Vocational Preference.
Sjoberg, L.
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v54 pt2 p189-205 Jun 1984
Relationships between interest in natural sciences and technology and perceived ability, success, and invested effort were studied in Swedish secondary school students. Interests were accounted for by logical orientation and practical value. Interests and grades were strongly correlated, but correlations between interests and effort and vocational preferences were more moderate. (MBR)
