Achievement goals, self-esteem, and persistence as predictors of future goals among Qassim University students / Fawzeiah Fahad Al-Shubaili, Mohammad Suliman Alwattban
The current study aimed to predict future goals through achievement goals, self-esteem, and persistence. The researchers designed a scale for future goals, and they used achievement goal orientations scale (Rashwan, 2006), Rosenberg self-esteem scale (translated by Jaradat, 2006), and persistence scale (Darwish, 2006). Then they applied these scales on a sample of 511 students from Qassim University. The study results revealed the following: 1- Internal future goals among Qassim University students can be predicted through self-esteem, approach mastery goals, and persistence. 2- External future goals among Qassim University students can be predicted through approach performance goals, self-esteem, and approach mastery goals.
