A Structural Model of Task Values, Goal Orientations, and Learning Strategies in Elementary School Mathematics Class.
Seo, Daeryong; Park, Yong Hui
A goal mediational model to conceptualize the effects of students' motivational beliefs on their learning strategies was modified with the three goal orientations: task, performance-approach, and performance-avoidance goals. Questionnaires were administered to 161 Korean fifth graders (boys = 88; girls = 73) in an elementary school math class. Consistent with previous studies, the task goal primarily stimulated appropriate learning strategies; students with a higher level of the task goal were more competent with their ability and had higher levels of task values and deep learning strategies. The performance-approach goal also motivated students to use appropriate learning strategies as does the task goal; students with a higher level of the performance-approach goal were more competent with their ability and had higher levels of task values and deep learning strategies. The performance-avoidance goal proved detrimental in the math class. Students with a higher level of the performance-avoidance goal had higher level of superficial learning strategies and lower levels of competence beliefs, deep learning strategies, and academic achievement. Implications for the three goal orientations in education are discussed. (Contains 28 references, 1 table, and 1 figure.) (Author/MM)
