Example text

According to Nicholls (1984b), "achievement behavior is defined as that behavior in which the goal is to develop or demonstrate-to self or to others-high ability, or to avoid demonstrating low ability" (p. 328). Thus Nicholls delineated between goals aimed at a demonstration of ability and goals aimed at avoiding a demonstration of low ability. Despite including this approach-avoidance distinction in his early work, Nicholls subsequently argued for two orthogonal approachoriented achievement goal states, task and ego involvement.

Only when perceptions of ability were high did ego-involved children report high levels of physical activity. Ego-oriented athletes are the most likely to drop out of sport (Ewing, 1981), while task-oriented intramural sport participants are the most likely to continue involvement in their sport for a longer time (Duda, 1988). Understanding the Dynamics of Motivation in Physical Activity 31 VanYperen and Duda (1999) found that task orientation was associated with beliefs that effort, team play, and parental support were important for success in sport, but also, importantly, that task orientation led young players to improve in their performance.

In addition, Papaioannou (1998) has found that reasons for being disciplined in physical education relate to goal orientations. A task orientation was associated with intrinsic reasons, caring, responsibility, and introjected reasons for being disciplined during participation in physical education classes. An ego orientation was positively related to extrinsic reasons and to no reasons for being disciplined. Overall, high-task-oriented individuals perceived themselves as more disciplined than low-task-oriented students, and this was linked to their reasons for being disciplined.
