Özet

The purpose of this research is to examine the relationships between 2x2 achievement goal orientations and math attitudes with structural equation modeling. Participants were 517 university students. The 2X2 Achievement Goal Orientations Scale and Mathematics Attitudes Scale were used as measures. Results from structural equation model showed that negative attitudes were predicted positively by learning-avoidance and performance-approach/avoidance goal orientations. Further positive attitudes were predicted positively by learning-approach/avoidance goal orientations and negatively by performance-approach/avoidance goal orientations. The results were discussed in the light of the related literature and dependent recommendations to the area were given.
