Multiple Goals, Multiple Pathways: The Role of Goal Orientation in Learning and Achievement.
Pintrich, Paul R.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v92 n3 p544-55 Sep 2000
Addresses the role of multiple goals, both mastery and performance goals, and links them to multiple outcomes of motivation, affect, strategy use, and performance. Data from 8th and 9th graders (N=150) reveal that, in line with normative goal therapy, mastery goals were adaptive; but also that performance goals, when coupled with mastery goals, were just as adaptive. (Contains 28 references, 2 tables, and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
