Abstract : Two studies using an objective test of Achievement Motivation with high school Ss indicated that the test was able to reproduce the results typically found with projective measures. One was a correlational study dealing with problems of academic achievement while the other was a laboratory study that focused on competitive risk taking. These data seemed to support the proposition that objective tests of achievement motivation may be possible. (Author)
