Examining the Role of Social Goals in School: A Study in Two Collectivist Cultures
King, Ronnel B.; McInerney, Dennis M.; Watkins, David A.
European Journal of Psychology of Education, v28 n4 p1505-1523 Dec 2013
Achievement goal theorists have mostly focused on the role of mastery and performance goals in the school setting with little attention being paid to social goals. The aim of this study was to explore the role of social goals in influencing educational outcomes in two collectivist cultures: Hong Kong and the Philippines. Results showed that social goals were able to predict additional variance in various adaptive educational outcomes even after controlling for the effects of mastery and performance goals. Implications for cross-cultural research are discussed.
