Cross- and Within-Domain Relations of Academic Motivation among Middle and High School Students: Self-Efficacy, Task-Value, and Achievement Goals.
Bong, Mimi
Cross-domain relations of self-efficacy, task-value, and achievement goal orientations were examined among 424 Korean middle and high school students using confirmatory factor analysis. All motivational constructions demonstrated strong subject-specificity in both age groups. Strengths of between-domain associations differed substantially by individual constructs. Levels of performance-approach and performance-avoidance goals were similar across domains, whereas those of task-value and task goals were more distinct across domains. Self-efficacy perceptions were moderately correlated across subjects. High school students' academic motivation was more differentiated than that of middle school students. Within-domain interrelations among these motivation constructs were generally consistent with previous research. More important was that consistent patterns of relations were observed in four different academic domains within each age group. (Contains 8 tables, 1 figure, and 57 references.) (Author/SLD)
