This publication began as a symposium on success Motiva­ tion on the 1978 American academic learn organization conference. The members in that symposium have been Jack Atkinson, Martin Maehr, Dick De Charms, Joel Raynor, and Dave Hunt. the following reaction to that symposium indicated a "coming of age" for motivation concept by way of schooling. quickly later on, at a Motivation in schooling convention at college of Michigan, Ann Arbor, it grew to become obvious that because of this emergence of motivation what used to be wanted was once a accomplished standpoint as to the cutting-edge of feat thought. fulfillment thought had through now good handed its beginnings within the Nineteen Fifties and Nineteen Sixties and was once prepared for a composite presentation and profile of the new learn and theories of motivation. therefore, this quantity used to be born. i need to take this chance to thank each one contribu­ tor to this e-book in addition to Robert L. Linn who seriously reviewed a number of of the manuscripts. thank you also are because of my former graduate advisors, Martin L. Maehr, Maurice Tatsuoka, and Harry Triandis, for the viewpoints given me in graduate college schooling which i'm hoping have benefitted this less than­ taking. Joyce Fitch did a fantastic joh typing a lot of those chapters and detailed gratitude will be given to Judy Cadle providers, Inc. for the composition and proofing of this book.

The results indicate that motivational and test-taking difficulties rather than learning or ability deficiencies may underlie and bias the poor test performance of highanxious children on standardized tests given under stringent time limits. Middle-anxious children, of course, would be expected to show smaller debilitating effects of negative motivation and hence smaller gains under optimal testing conditions than high-anxious children. Eaton (1979) has extended the Hill and Eaton (1977) findings to a new sample of children for whom test anxiety measures were available for the two years prior to testing as well as the current year.

Mark does fairly well on the first couple of problems of a vocabulary subtest but then runs into increasingly harder problems. Mark does not know it, but 5th and 6th graders also take the very same test his 4th grade is taking, making it much harder for his group (the testing company instructions inform the teacher of this but not the students). As Mark moves through the test he finds he has to read new instructions for different kinds of word problems, each set of which has its own question and answer format.
