Description

This study extends the research on adolescents' motivation for reading. It looks at important group differences and the relation of motivation to standardized achievement. Participants are in grades 7–12. Findings suggest that motivational beliefs as a group and individually were able to predict students' performance on a standardized measure of reading comprehension.
