Mastery Goals vs. Performance Avoidance Goals

The Student's Circumstances:
I want to be a nurse.  This semester, one of my
short-term goals is to pass human anatomy.  I'm in
class right now.  Honestly, I have been a little
confused for the last two class sessions.  I had some
issues at work this past week, and I didn't get all of the
reading done for this class.

Trouble-Shooting: Practice Quiz Questions
a. Brainstorm a list of ways that the student could address
these circumstances.  Include ideas that you consider to be
appropriate and/or inappropriate options.  
b. Which choices may suggest that passing anatomy is a
mastery goal for this student?
c. Which choices may suggest that passing anatomy is a
performance avoidance goal for this student?
