A volume in the series: Research on Sociocultural Influences on Motivation and Learning. Editor(s): Dennis M. McInerney, Hong Kong Institute of Education.

Published 2007

Education institutions and organizations throughout the world are currently being held accountable for achieving and maintaining historically unmatched standards of academic quality and performance. Accreditation bodies; policy makers; boards of trustees; and teacher, parent, and student groups all place educational institutions and organizations under unprecedented accountability pressures. The aim of this volume is to explore and better understand how these pressures are impacting a broad range of social and cultural issues and, subsequently, how these issues impact student motivation and learning.
