Sažetak
This study examined cross-cultural similarities and differences in the patterning of achievement goal orientations in three countries (i.e., Croatia, Finland, and Norway), and how those patterns were associated with students’ ratings of importance, interest and perceived competence in mathematics. The participants were 1196 Croatian (50 % girls), 502 Finnish (51 % girls), and 424 Norwegian (52 % girls) 13-year olds, who completed a questionnaire assessing five different types of achievement goal orientations (i.e., preferences for certain goals and outcomes in an achievement-related context). They also evaluated the importance, interestingness, and own competence in different school subjects. After ensuring measurement equivalence, the students were classified into homogenous groups by means of latent class clustering. Configural frequency analysis was then used to examine the distribution of students of different nationalities in different groups. Finally, two-way ANOVAs are conducted in order to examine differences in importance, interest and own competence across the groups and countries. Five groups fit the data best, and based on their profiles, the groups were labeled as mastery-oriented (13.5 %), success-oriented (27.5 %), performance-oriented (17.8 %), normatively oriented (26.7 %), and avoidance- oriented (14.5 %). Examining the distribution of students of different nationalities in different groups revealed interesting variation, showing Croatian students to be over-represented in success- and performance- oriented groups, Finnish students in mastery- and avoidance- oriented groups, and Norwegian students in normatively oriented groups. Only achievement goal orientation group predicted students ratings of importance, interest, and own competence, thus suggesting similar effects across the countries.
