PERCEPTIONS OF TEACHER´S GOALS IN CLASSROOM, STUDENT´S MOTIVATION AND THEIR MALADAPTIVE BEHAVIOUR AS PREDICTORS OF HIGH SCHOOL MATH ACHIEVEMENT
Languages of publication
The present study investigated the relationships among perceived teachers’ goals and students’ motivation, maladaptive behaviour and achievement in high school math. We proposed an indirect impact of perceptions of teachers’ goals in the class on students’ achievement through their personal achievement goals, their disruptive behaviour and cheating. The sample of participants was comprised of 437 Slovenian upper-secondary school students (176 boys and 261 girls) in their third grade. Results showed an adaptive pattern of perceived teachers’ mastery goals in the class and perceived teachers pressure on students’ math achievement that was mediated through students’ mastery goal orientation and their cheating.
