Classrooms: Goals, Structures, and Student Motivation.
Ames, Carole
Journal of Educational Psychology, v84 n3 p261-71 Sep 1992
The classroom learning environment is examined in relation to achievement goal theory of motivation. A perspective is presented that argues for identification and analysis of classroom structures that can contribute to a mastery orientation. With such an orientation, the focus will be on effort rather than ability. (SLD)
