This research<br />applies a quantitative method of study. Quantitative data have been analysed using Wigfield and Eccles’s<br />Expectancy–Value Theory Achievement Questionnaire in order to assess student’s expectancies for success, ability<br />beliefs and subjective task values. In the case study of a private Suleyman Sah University, Turkey, the focus of the<br />questionnaire has been derived from the central research question: How applications of Achievement Goal Theory<br />affect students’ expectancies for success, beliefs about ability, usefulness, importance and interest for mathematics?<br />The questionnaire was given to 40 students who were selected randomly in mathematics class. Also, in order to<br />identify students’ goal orientation, Elliot’s AGQ (Achievement Goal Questionnaire) was applied to those students.<br />Their Achievement Goal motivation types were compared to their beliefs about ability, usefulness, importance and<br />interest for mathematics. Based on the quantitative data analysis, it was concluded that students with masterylearning<br />goal orientation have more expectancies for success, for them mathematics is a more useful and important<br />subject, and, most importantly, they show more interest for the subject. These are very important components to<br />be persistent in the face of difficulties and obstacles on the way to achievement in teaching mathematics.</p>}, number={1}, journal={Journal of Education in Black Sea Region}, author={SEKRETER, Gulseren}, year={2016}, month={Dec.} }
