Abstract

This paper sought to explore the deeper reasons that students identify to account for their endorsement of high task/high ego goals in the context of physical education (PE). Data from in-depth interviews suggested that although such individuals are thought to reflect a statistically homogenous subgroup, they outline remarkably different qualitative reasons to account for their endorsement of task and ego oriented items. Findings are discussed in terms of their relevance to Nicholls's achievement goal theory in the context of PE.
