    Abstract

    The psychometrical quality of instruments to measure goal orientations of students in competence-based Pre-Vocational Secondary Education (PVSE) was tested in a study that was carried out with 31 participants. The students’ goal orientations were measured by means of semi-structured interviews, questionnaires and an online sorting task. Based on the results of the study, the questionnaire appeared to measure the goal orientation of the students most efficiently. Depending on the results of the questionnaire, it can be concluded that 24 of the 31 participants had a mastery goal orientation when working in work place simulation. The other 7 students had a preference for work avoidance orientation. Goals and motivation of the PVSE students are strongly related to task value.
