TITLE The hierarchical model of achievement motivation: Conceptual and applied issues

DATE & TIME Friday, 25 April 2014, 10.00 - 11.00 hrs

LOCATION Room M.0074, Heymans Building, Grote Kruisstraat 2/1, Groningen

ABSTRACT In my talk, I will overview my conceptual model of achievement motivation and present data from studies designed to put it to empirical test. I will focus primarily on achievement goals, as they represent the centerpiece and linchpin of the hierarchical model. I will also provide a general overview of the link between achievement goals and important achievement outcomes, and will discuss antecedents of achievement goal adoption. Furthermore, I will address some applied considerations that emerge from research in this area, using my hierarchical model as a guide.
