Abstract Share this page

Outlines conceptual links between goal perspective theory (J. G. Nicholls, 1989) and E. L. Deci and R. M. Ryan's cognitive evaluation theory (1985) in terms of intrinsic motivation in sports. The author argues that a task-involved goal perspective should foster intrinsic motivation while an ego-involved goal perspective will lead to decreased intrinsic motivation. Recent investigations that have examined the relationship of situationally-induced task and/or ego involvement and intrinsic motivation in the classroom and in sport are reviewed. Research across 2 samples of 228 undergraduates is presented that determined the association between scores on the Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Questionnaire (TEOSQ) and the Intrinsic Motivation Inventory. Results were consistent with theoretical predictions and provide converging evidence for the construct validity of the TEOSQ.
