The Motivational Construct in Mathematics Learning Using Structural Equation Modeling: The Korean Elementary School Math Class.
Seo, Daeryong
This study was undertaken to understand a motivation model in the context of the Korean elementary school mathematics class. The sample consisted of 178 fourth graders (boys=95; girls=83) from 2 Korean elementary schools. This study showed that a goal mediational model could be modified and successfully applied to the context of the Korean elementary school math class. Students' learning and performance goal orientations directly influenced their learning strategies as Meece, et al. (1988) reported. However, students' learning goal orientation had the bigger influence on their learning strategies. Students' math attitudes and effort had direct effects on their learning goal orientation, and had indirect effect on their learning strategies. Students' competence beliefs had direct effects on their math attitudes, effort, and performance goal orientation, and had indirect effects on their learning goal orientation and learning strategies.
