Abstract

The aim of this study based on this view is to investigate the relationship between the achievement-goal orientations of students during learning and their motivation levels towards learning chemistry. The study was designed in the relational survey model. The sample of the research consists of 688 high school students. In the research, the scale of achievement goal orientations and chemistry motivation questionnaire have been used as data collection tools. According to the structural equation modelling results, the fit indexes of the model are at the levels of good fit and acceptable fit. There is a positive and substantive link between achievement goal orientation and chemistry motivation. According to Manova results of the research, it has been determined that sex has a substantive impact on the performance-approach and performance-avoidance sub-dimensions of the achievement goal orientations scale and the internal motivation-personal convenience, external motivation, self-determination-self-sufficiency and anxiety of evaluation sub-dimensions of the chemistry motivation questionnaire.
