And Draves (1984) discusses various motivating elements that specifically apply to adults, like mentality of readiness, problem orientation, and time perspective. Heckhausen and Schulz’s (1995) Action Control Theory (ACT), seeks to specify and understand the interrelations of the critical elements of motivational processes by mapping out the sources and evolution of such processes.

Abounding in the exclusivity issue, Glendenning and Battersby (1990) highlight the ingrained bourgeois bias of many lifelong learning programs, and Merriam and Caffarella (1999) portray adults in those programs as white, middle class, well educated, and well-situated.

Like Bandura, other cognitive psychologists have also highlighted the motivational powers of perceived self-efficacy. Zimmerman (2000) for instance, considers that self-efficacy is the most important of the three motivational processes built into his self-regulation model, the other two being outcome expectations, and task interest.
