dc.description.abstract Achievement goal research in physical education (PE ) settings relies heavily on the traditional dichotomous achievement goal framework . Few studies use the trichotomous or 2*2 achievement goal model to explore and examine high school students ? ? achievement goals and behaviors in PE settings . Additionally , few studies to date have examined social and achievement goals simultaneously for high school students in PE settings . The purposes of this study were to : (1 ) examine whether the trichotomous and 2*2 achievement goal models reported in university undergraduate classrooms are appropriate in high school PE classes and (2 ) examine achievement goals and social goals simultaneously to see how they impact students ? ? persistence /effort toward physical education . The results revealed that the 2*2 model is appropriate for high school students in PE settings and provides a better fit to the data than the trichotomous model . The results also revealed that social responsibility goals represent the greatest contributor to students ? ? persistence /effort toward physical education . This is followed by masteryapproach goals , mastery -avoidance goals , and performance -approach goals . Performance -avoidance goals and social relationship goals did not significantly affect students ? ? persistence /effort toward physical education . Based on the findings , we advocate using both achievement and social goals when examining student motivation and achievement in high school physical education . en_US
