Effects of ability grouping in schools, related to individual differences in achievement-related motivation, final report by John W Atkinson( Book )

9 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two empirical studies were made to test the desirability of employing some form of ability grouping to enhance learning opportunities in schools. The two field studies specifically explored some of the motivational implications of ability grouping as manifested in scholastic achievement, reported interest in schoolwork, and the development of realistic vocational aspirations among students who differ substantially in the nature of their motivation to achieve. Study a was undertaken to explore some of the possible consequences of participation by well-qualified, junior high school students in special sections of mathematics beginning in the seventh grade. Study b was concerned with the effects of homogeneous ability grouping in the sixth grade. Here, scholastic achievement and reported interest in schoolwork were matters of central interest. The hypothesis that ability grouping would produce greater arousal of achievement-related motivation than the traditional class that is heterogeneous in ability was not supported by study a, yet was strongly supported by study B.

The achievement motive by David C McClelland( )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains a summary of research on the achievement motive conducted mainly at Wesleyan University during the period January 1, 1947, to January 1, 1952, under the continuous moral and financial support of the Office of Naval Research. It provides a practicable method of measuring one of the most important human motives, a method, moreover, which in all probability can be applied to other motives with equal success. Secondly, the book contains what we believe to be an important contribution to psychological theory--at least to the theory of motivation. Finally, the book contains a great deal of information about the achievement motive and related variables, and we feel that most readers, being interested in the total problem, will want to read the whole book. For only if they do, will they discover what we have discovered--that concentration on a limited research problem is not necessarily narrowing; it may lead ultimately into the whole of psychology. In personality theory there is inevitably a certain impatience--a desire to solve every problem at once so as to get the "whole" personality in focus. We have proceeded the other way. By concentrating on one problem, on one motive, we have found in the course of our study that we have learned not only a lot about the achievement motive but other areas of personality as well. So we feel that this book can be used as one basis for evaluating the degree to which a "piecemeal" approach to personality is profitable, an approach which proceeds to build up the total picture out of many small experiments by a slow process of going from fact to hypothesis and back to fact again. At the moment it may seem like a poor alternative to immediate, over-all assessment methods, but it is our present feeling that in the long run it will be at least as profitable."
