Academic Self-Concept, Autonomous Academic Motivation, and Academic Achievement: Mediating and Additive Effects
Guay, Frederic; Ratelle, Catherine F.; Roy, Amelie; Litalien, David
Learning and Individual Differences, v20 n6 p644-653 Dec 2010
Three conceptual models were tested to examine the relationships among academic self-concept, autonomous academic motivation, and academic achievement. This allowed us to determine whether 1) autonomous academic motivation mediates the relation between academic self-concept and achievement, 2) academic self-concept mediates the relation between autonomous academic motivation and achievement, or 3) both motivational constructs have an additive effect on academic achievement. A total of 925 high school students (404 boys and 521 girls) were asked to complete a questionnaire on two occasions separated by a year interval. Results from SEM analyses provided good support for the hypothesized model positing that autonomous academic motivation mediates the academic self-concept-academic achievement relation. Results are discussed in light of self-determination theory and self-concept theory. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
