Buckling Down: Achieving and Underachieving in the First Year of University.
Bell, James H.; Short, Sara
Journal of College Reading and Learning, v34 n1 p6-25 Fall 2003
Interviews 11 self-defined underachieving college freshmen. Synthesizes 13 definitions of achievement by students. Analyzes the interviews repeatedly to produce a list of the students' concepts of achievement, arranged from the most common to the least common. Finds each student held more than one definition of achieving, some definitions in the forefront affecting actions, others in the background. (SG)
