Achievement Goal Orientations and Self-Regulation in Writing: An Integrative Perspective
Kaplan, Avi; Lichtinger, Einat; Gorodetsky, Malka
Journal of Educational Psychology, v101 n1 p51-69 Feb 2009
This study tested the hypothesis that self-regulation of writing is a multifaceted modular construct and that students would perceive different goal orientations for writing as involving the application of different writing strategies. Two hundred eleven Jewish Israeli high school students engaged in a writing assignment and then reported on their goal orientations, self-regulation, and writing strategies. Smallest space analyses indicated that self-regulation and writing strategies were perceived as elements within goal orientations, thus suggesting a phenomenological integration of motivation and self-regulation of writing into task-related action orientations. The findings pointed to possible differences in the nature of these action orientations between students from different types of learning environments and with different levels of writing achievement. (Contains 3 tables, 4 figures, and 4 footnotes.)
