Positive and Negative Ability Beliefs Among Navajo High School Students: How Do They Relate to Students' School Achievement Goals? by John W Hinckley( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper draws on the stereotype threat hypothesis and social identity theory to examine the influence of positive and negative ability beliefs on Navajo students' achievement goals. Data were collected on 829 Navajo students in two reservation high schools. The results support the notion that Navajo students hold both positive and negative ability beliefs about school; positive and negative ability factors were negatively correlated but only moderately, suggesting a more complex relationship than expected. Positive ability belief was positively correlated with mastery and performance approach factors and negatively correlated with the performance avoidance factor. Negative ability belief was positively correlated with the performance avoidance factor but was not related to the mastery and performance approach factors. Positive ability belief was positively related to grade point average and negatively related to absences; the reverse was found for negative ability belief. Positive ability belief was not related to gender or strength of social identity (traditionalism, as indicated by remote location and Navajo language use). The findings do not support the hypothesis that a stronger social identity results in more positive ability beliefs and greater academic achievement. (Contains 24 references.) (Sv)
The Multi-Faceted Structure of School Achievement Motivation: A Case for Social Goals by John W Hinckley( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

One reason proposed for the persistent school underachievement of Navajo students is that school culture is based largely on individualism, interpersonal competition, and other Western norms and values that may be an anathema to Native Americans. Hence, school culture may predispose them to failure. Drawing on Western concepts of achievement motivation, this paper examines school achievement motivation similarities and differences between nontraditional and near-traditional Navajo high school students. A survey of 829 Navajo students in grades 9-12 examined the relationships among nontraditional factors (speak English, live in town); near-traditional factors (speak Navajo, live in rural areas); gender; social goals (approval, concern); and achievement goals (mastery, approach, avoidance). English speakers scored higher than Navajo speakers for concern; rural students scored higher than town students for approval; while females scored higher than males for concern. Males scored higher than females for approach and for avoidance. There were no other significant differences. The relations of language and gender to mastery were completely mediated by concern, while the relations of rural/urban location to approach were completely mediated by approval. It was concluded that nontraditional and near-traditional Navajo students are more similar than dissimilar and that Navajo high school students' social goals play an important role in their achievement goals. Four appendices present survey items and statistical tables. (Contains 46 references.) (Td)
