Product description

This important Handbook provides a comprehensive, authoritative review of achievement motivation and establishes the concept of competence as an organizing framework for the field. The editors synthesize diverse perspectives on why and how individuals are motivated in school, work, sports, and other settings. Written by leading investigators, chapters reexamine central constructs in achievement motivation; explore the impact of developmental, contextual, and sociocultural factors; and analyze the role of self-regulatory processes. Focusing on the ways in which achievement is motivated by the desire to experience competence and avoid experiencing incompetence, the volume integrates disparate theories and findings and sets forth a coherent agenda for future research.

It is sure to prompt and profoundly shape future research in the area." - Martin L. Maehr, PhD, Department of Psychology and School of Education, University of Michigan , USA "The editors have done an admirable job in pulling together diverse strands of work under a coherent conceptual umbrella, providing an illuminating historical and contemporary perspective on an aspect of the human psyche that constitutes a major force in 'making the world go round." - Arie W. Kruglanski, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland-College Park, USA "This magnificent review and analysis of every aspect of achievement motivation brings together the work of widely recognized experts. The Handbook is an incredible resource for anyone interested in motivation." - Deborah J. Stipek, PhD, Stanford University School of Education, USA "Each contributor is able to present his or her area of expertise, while at the same time making it clear why competence is important to that area...
