She explains these findings in terms of cultural beliefs and the teachers' classroom practices. GOAL ORIENTATION THEORY: NEW IDEAS AND RECENT RESEARCH Achievement goal is another major proximal variable affecting student motivation. The six chapters in Section II address the relationship between goal orientations and achievement patterns in different cultures and achievement contexts. Incidentally, all the chapters in this section focus on two major goal orientations: (a) to demonstrate superior ability relative to others through outstanding performance, and (b) to develop competence and gain mastery.

The answer to this why question will be influenced by many sources of evidence, including past history of success and failure, social norms or the performance of others, rules about the relations between causes, hedonic biasing, and on and on. More specifically, for example, if the person has always failed in the past, then current failure is likely to be attributed to the self; if others succeed while you fail, then again failure is more likely to be attributed to the self (rather than to the task); if one thinks that failure requires multiple causality, then even given the knowledge of lack of effort one is likely to derogate personal ability, whereas if there is a belief in sufficient causality, then knowledge that one has not worked hard will result in maintenance of self-related ability beliefs; in general, one is more likely to take credit for success than attribute failure to the self, etc.
