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?
