So, I've been procrastinating all weekend about doing some feedback on student presentations. I finally force myself, and ... Lo! Most of them are procrastinating on submitting them.

Need research subjects? This looks good. Discovered via .

Anybody here tried it? Experiences/results?

Reading comments from external reader/reviewer on the chapters I wrote for a group research project. They are not as scathing as a fully expected them to be. Main comment is too much general information--which I anticipated.

Surveys are useful. But Bong went on to measure in studies. How to prompt Ability Goal, Normative Goal, and Mastery Goals.

When you ask thousands of junior high students to freely list their goals and code them Bong found top results for social status goals. Frighteningly not a single response for social concern goals. Where does this come from?

Mimi starts us down the motivation and goal rabbit hole? Just how many damned goals are there? And these theories may reflect researchers' assumptions.

An old friend, Dexter Da Silva, welcomes Mimi Bong to speak. Really looking forward to hearing her talk on achievement goal theory. Mimi is also working through APA to open up connections to psychology from and with Asia.

Opening. Asian Conference on Psychology and Conference on Ethics, Religion, and Philosophy.

Question about anonymization in writing up research. Editing some chapters about edu practices at several universities in different countries. One author did not use pseudonyms. I can make the pseudonym but then they cite the uni website and list in the references. What to do? Remove ref and just cite (Pseudo Uni, 2017) in text?
