Achievement Goal Orientation toward General Education versus Overall Coursework
Miller, B. J.; Sundre, Donna L.
Journal of General Education, v57 n3 p152-169 2008
Two studies were conducted regarding the achievement goal orientations of college students within two contexts: coursework in all courses and in general education courses. Interactions were detected for achievement goals by class level and context. Findings raise concern about student attitudes toward general education, despite its importance to other stakeholders. (Contains 4 figures and 5 tables.)
