Current Issues in Achievement Goal Theory and Research
Pintrich, Paul R.; Conley, AnneMarie M.; Kempler, Toni M.
International Journal of Educational Research, v39 n4-5 p319-337 2003
This article focuses on three general areas of research on achievement goal theory, including the definition and role of achievement goals, the role of contextual goals and factors, and the measurement and induction of goals. Issues regarding the definition of achievement goals include the generality of the approach/avoid dimension and the consequences of adopting multiple goals. Contextual issues center around the processing of classroom information related to goal adoption and the role of goals in collaborative learning groups. Measurement issues include questions about the measurement of achievement goal orientations, measuring goals in context, and the validity of contextual goal measures.
