Résumé / Abstract

Students' affective experiences in school may be related to both academic motivational and social aspects of the classroom context. An emphasis on improving competency (a task goal orientation), a sense of school belonging, and endorsement of social goals (responsibility, status and relationship goals) should be related to positive affect in school, while an emphasis on relative ability (ability goals) should be related to negative affect. Surveys were given to 444 students in the fifth grade in elementary and again in sixth grade in middle school. Hierarchical regression analyses indicated that students' perceptions of a task goal orientation in their classes, school belonging, relationship and responsibility goals predicted increased positive affect in sixth grade. An ability goal orientation predicted increased negative affect, while school belonging was inversely related to negative affect. A significant interaction effect indicated that a task goal orientation was inversely related to negative affect but that this relation was moderated by students' level of endorsement of status goals.
