Abstract

The current st~~tly attempts to extend our understanding of how cultitral factors relate to basic ~noti\;ational processes, specifically achievement goals.

And second, do the patterns of rela- tions between the goals vary across ethnic and c~~ltr~ral ally diverse samples are presented, incl~~ding and Anglo A~ner-ican lines? Data on cultur- Asian Americans, Nigerian, students.
