Expected positive consequences are predictors of effort expenditure in goal pursuit (Sheldon & Elliot, 1999). However, there are indications that this relationship is moderated (Locke & Latham, 1990) or mediated by commitment. A sample of 388 university students was administrated questionnaires in order to measure goal commitment, effort and positive expected goal attainment consequences. The results suggest that goal commitment is not a moderator of the relationship between positive expected goal attainment consequences and exerted effort but rather mediates the relationship. The findings outline that expected consequences in terms of cost-benefit analysis as another type of expectations are associated with effort, too.
