Importance of Goal Ambitiousness and Goal Mastery to Student Achievement.
Fuchs, Lynn S.; And Others
Exceptional Children, v52 n1 p63-71 Sep 1985
Special education students (N=58) for whom teachers assessed baseline performance and set reading goals employing a standard format were assigned to goal ambitiousness groups. Teachers implemented students' goals, end-of-treatment goal mastery was determined, and pretest and posttest achievement scores were examined. Analyses revealed that ambitiousness of goals was associated positively with achievement: goal mastery was not. (Author/CL)
