Example text

It is sometimes inevitable that students will have to work on similar or identical tasks. In these instances, teachers can limit ability comparisons by focusing on different processes and products. This is referred to as divergent production (Guilford, 1959). ). In the multidimensional classroom the teacher has two options: allow students to choose their own tasks or assign specific tasks to different students. If the teacher assigns the tasks on the basis of perceived student ability, assuming that certain students should always receive the "challenging" or "more academic" assignments and others should always receive the less demanding tasks, the assignments can reinforce the students' beliefs about their own and their peers' abilities (or lack thereof).

Regardless of their personal interest, there­ fore, students are more likely to become interested in particular tasks or activities because of particular qualities of the classroom or task. Much of the research on situational interest arose from studies of aspects of texts that elicit interest in students. Both personal and situational interest offer important implications for the develop­ ment of motivational academic tasks. In terms of personal interest, teachers must realize that their students enter their classrooms with varying levels of personal interest in a par­ ticular topic.
