Meyer, D.K., Turner, C.T., Spencer, C.A. (1997) Challenge in Mathematics Classroom: Students’ Motivation and Strategies in Project-Based Learning. The Elementary School Journal, 97(5), 501-521.

This research article looked at how motivation, volition, and affect played important roles in influencing decision making in challenge math. They found that the potential to challenge oneself can only be realized if teachers can tailor assignments to the individual response patterns that students bring to an activity.
