Academic Intrinsic Motivation in Homeschooled Children

/
"Analyzes academic intrinsic motivation in homeschooled children. Measures intrinsic interest in learning in children from three different educational settings: homeschools, a public school using grades for student evaluation, and a public school using portfolio assessment instead of grades. Also, homeschooled children’s academic achievement was tested and their parents’ attitudes and teaching practices were recorded to see what relationship these factors might have to academic intrinsic motivation.
