Culture, cognition, and college: How do cultural values and theories of intelligence predict students’ intrinsic value for learning?
This research explored the cultural and cognitive factors that promoted college students’ intrinsic value for academic learning, which has been shown to be an important correlate of college students’ GPA. Cultural values and theories of intelligence were both hypothesized to predict students’ intrinsic value, but only cultural values were shown to be an important predictor in these relationships. Explanations and implications for these findings are explored.
