Achievement Goals and Achievement Emotions: Testing a Model of Their Joint Relations with Academic Performance.

  title={Achievement Goals and Achievement Emotions: Testing a Model of Their Joint Relations with Academic Performance.},
  author={Reinhard Pekrun and Andrew J. Elliot and Markus A. Maier},
  journal={Journal of Educational Psychology},
The authors propose a theoretical model linking achievement goals and achievement emotions to academic performance. This model was tested in a prospective study with undergraduates (N = 213), using exam-specific assessments of both goals and emotions as predictors of exam performance in an introductory-level psychology course. The findings were consistent with the authors' hypotheses and supported all aspects of the proposed model. In multiple regression analysis, achievement goals (mastery…

Achievement Goals as Antecedents of Achievement Emotions: The 3 X 2 Achievement Goal Model as a Framework for Learning Environments Design

The links between achievement goals and achievement emotions are explored and the utilities of the instruments for the design of TEL products are discussed, to assess motivation and affect involved in learning environments.

Achievement goals, emotions, learning, and performance : A process model

The present study evaluates the relations between achievement goals, emotions, learning strategies, and performance as informed by Pekrun’s control-value theory of emotions. Undergraduates from


Background: In academic settings, the goals that students pursue have a significant impact on students’ motivation, performance and emotions, a condition known as achievement emotion. Objectives: The

Achievement Emotions and Academic Performance: Longitudinal Models of Reciprocal Effects.

The model was tested using five annual waves of the Project for the Analysis of Learning and Achievement in Mathematics (PALMA) longitudinal study, which investigated adolescents' development in mathematics, and showed that positive emotions positively predicted subsequent achievement and negative emotions negatively predicted achievement.

Students’ Achievement Goals, Learning-Related Emotions and Academic Achievement

Findings from CFAs provided strong support for the proposed structure of the 3 × 2 achievement goal model and associations with achievement emotions and their joint influence on academic achievement are investigated.

Achievement goals and emotions: The mediational roles of perceived progress, control, and value.

Study findings partially support Linnenbrink and Pintrich's (2002, Educational Psychologist, 37, 69) bidirectional theory of affect while underscoring the potential for indirect effects of goals on emotions through perceived control as proposed by Pekrun (2006, Educational Psychology Review, 18, 315).

Positive academic emotions moderate the relationship between self-regulation and academic achievement.

The results are discussed in terms of how positive emotions indicate positive appraisals of task/outcome value, and thus enhance the positive links between cognitive/motivational variables and learning.

The objective of this investigation was to evaluate and expand the goal-orientation model of depression vulnerability proposed by B. M. Dykman (1998), which posits that a performance orientation

Achievement goals, study strategies, and exam performance: A mediational analysis.

Two studies examined achievement goals as predictors of self-reported cognitive/ metacognitive and motivational study strategies and tested these study strategies as mediators of the relationship

Achievement goals as predictors of achievement-relevant processes prior to task engagement.

This research comprised 3 studies (2 prospective and 1 short-term longitudinal) designed to investigate mastery, performance-approach, and performance-avoidance goals as predictors of


A hierarchical model of approach and avoidance achievement motivation was proposed and tested in a college classroom. Mastery, performance-approach, and performance-avoidance goals were assessed and
