Abstract

Problem Statement: Achievement goal theory has become a dominant viewpoint in understanding students' motivation. Recently, a large body of research has investigated the association of achievement goals with adaptive and maladaptive outcomes. However, to date, studies have not directly examined the relationships between 2X2 achievement goals and the academic locus of control.
