Sample text

Based on a median split of the task, participants were divided into four groups (high task, high ego; high task, low ego; low task, low ego; low task, high ego). Analyses revealed that the high task groups attributed success to effort more than low task groups did. In contrast, high ego groups attributed success to ability more than did low ego groups. Participants high in task orientation and low in ego orientation were more satisfied than those who were low in task orientation. In this study, task-oriented participants endorsed adaptive achievement beliefs and experienced the greater satisfaction.

Being task oriented and perceiving one's competence to be high are both important antecedents to reduction of anxiety in sport. Understanding the Dynamics of Motivation in Physical Activity 29 Motivation for Participation Goal orientations are also predictive of the reasons for participating in an activity. White and Duda (1994), for example, in their study of youth, intercollegiate, and recreational sport participants, found that task orientation was associated with the more intrinsic motives for involvement such as skill development and enhancing one's level of fitness.

Interestingly, Lee and Whitehead found that high-ego-, low-task-oriented participants with low perceived ability were more likely to endorse cheating in sport than high-ego- and low-task-oriented participants who were high in perceived ability. And high-task-oriented participants were less likely to endorse cheating than any other participant, regardless of perceived ability. More recently, colleagues in Norway and I have been investigating the impact of achievement goals and motivational climate on sportspersonship in elite children's soccer.
