SAGE Open, v7 n4 Oct 2017
The present study aimed at exploring the effectiveness of a training program based on goal orientations. A sample of 69 female students at Tala' Al-Ali School in Jordan was chosen and distributed randomly into the experimental and control groups. To achieve the objectives of this study, the researchers had constructed training program to modify students' types of goal orientation. Also, the researchers developed the goal orientation scale and obtained good validity and reliability indicators. The results showed that there was a significant statistical difference at the level of [alpha] = 0.05 in the postscores of the goal orientation domains in favor of the experimental group. In addition, there was no statistical difference at the level of [alpha] = 0.05 between the posttest and delayed scores in the experimental group indicating the continuity of the effect of the training program on the experimental group.
