Competence competence motivation in head start 19 motivation, attention/persistence, and attitude toward learning dimensions were further affirmed through cross-validation and confirmatory analyses.

Relative to the other dimensions, competence motivation represented the largest amount of unique variance contributing to the overall, multivariate construct of approaches to learning behavior as well as the least amount of error variance.

Programmatic research with these dimensions has tested the unique contribution of each learning behavior to academic achievement for school-age students.

This research found strong reliability and predictive power for these dimensions and no socioeconomic or ethnic bias (Schaefer & McDermott, 1999; Worrell, Vandiver, & Watkins, 2001).
