The research aims to investigate how the perceived-demands and resources of A-Level study predict achievement-related-emotions, motivations, and behaviours. The research question is- how perceived-demands and resources of A-Level study predict emotions of hopelessness, anxiety, pride, and anticipatory-relief; motivations of intrinsic and extrinsic goal-orientation and behaviours of planning, task-management, and persistence. The hypotheses are: 1) The perceived-demands of A-Level study will increase negative emotions of hopelessness and anxiety and an increase in extrinsic goal-orientation. 2) The perceived resources will increase positive emotions and behaviours of pride and anticipatory-relief, planning, time-management, persistence, and an increase in intrinsic goal-orientation in students.
The sample comprised 963 sixth-form A-Level students aged 16-18 years old. Participants completed a self-report questionnaire that comprised the first of two waves. Data were analysed using a hierarchal regression in three blocks. Block-1 consisted of demographics: gender, ethnicity, free-school-meals and whether English was students first language. Block-2 consisted of prior-achievement data: GCSE Maths and English grades. Block-3 included demands and resources.
Perceived-demand explained additional variance in achievement-related-emotions (R^2 =.01 to .15), motivations (R^2 =.02 to .25), and behaviours (R^2= .01 to .20) after accounting for the variance explained by demographic-variables and prior-achievement. Perceived-resources explained additional variance in achievement-related-emotions (R^2 .04 to .01, motivations (R^2 .03 to .17), and behaviours (R^2= .01 to .19). Specifically, perceived-demands predicted hopelessness (β=.44), anxiety (β=. 53), pride (β=-.28) and extrinsic goal-orientation (β=.16). Perceived-resources predicted hopelessness (β=-.48), anxiety (β=-.31), anticipatory-relief (β=.22), pride (β=.56), intrinsic goal-orientation (β=.31), extrinsic goal-orientation (β=.45), planning (β=.33), time-management (β=.30) and persistence (β=.45).
