Spinath, Birgit; Stiensmeier-Pelster, Joachim
Learning and Instruction, v13 n4 p403-22 2003
Tested the prediction that performance goals only entail poor achievement outcomes in individuals with a low self-concept of ability. In 3 experiments (n=55 university students; n=51 university students; n=33 university students) participants with performance goals showed impaired performance only when their self-perceived ability was low.
