By providing the reader a glimpse into the tradition of their various qualitative...

Student learning motivation and psychological hardiness: interactive effects on students’ reactions to a management classCole, M. S., Feild, H. S., & Harris, S. G. - 2004 - Academy of Management Learning & Education, 3(1), 64–85
We propose here that simultaneously considering the combined effects of students' learning motivation and psychological hardiness can increase understanding of the learning experience and its impact on important learning outcomes. Specifically, we hypothesized that the relationship between learning motivation and learning outcomes would be moderated by individuals' psychological hardiness. We collected data in two studies. The first established the psychometric properties of a newly...
