A Pattern Analysis of Students' Achievement Goals.
Meece, Judith L.; Holt, Kathleen
Journal of Educational Psychology, v85 n4 p582-90 Dec 1993
Cluster analysis was used to classify 257 fifth and sixth graders on the basis of their mastery, ego, and work-avoidant goal orientations. Results identify three clusters with different achievement profiles in science. Students for whom mastery goals were stronger than the other goals show the most positive achievement. (SLD)
