Abstract

The current research aims to identify:

1- The level of the areas of goal orientation (control, performance - Avoid goals, performance - avoid goal) among Anbar University students.

2- The level of self-worth of students at Anbar University.

3- The strength of the correlational relation between the areas of goal orientation (control, performance - avoid goals, performance – avoid goal) and self-worthiness of Anbar University students.

The research was limited to a sample of (200) both male and female students from Anbar University, and the specialization were (scientific and humanitarian) for the academic year (2019-2020). The standards were applied electronically due to the Corona pandemic, and to achieve the current research objectives, the researcher adopted the goal-orientation scale by (Taha, 2019) according to what Elliott see (Elliott, 1997), by applying his three-dimensional model, represented by (mastery goals) and (performance – avoid goal) goals, and (performance – avoid goals) goals, with some modifications to the scale. By adding a fifth gradation to the scale to suit the research community, as it consists of (20) paragraphs in its final form, distributed into three areas, after verifying the psychometric properties of the scale of validity and reliability.

The researcher also adopted the self-merit scale built by (Al-Waeli, 2019) according to Crocker theory (Crocker, 2004: 393) for self-worthiness, which consists of (34) paragraphs, in the form of reportable expressions. The researcher also verified the psychometric properties of the scale: And after data analysis, the following results were discovered:

- The sample has a high level of orientation towards the goal in two areas: (mastery goals) and goals of (performance – avoid goals). The average of the sample's scores on the two fields were statistical significance. The sample has a medium level of target orientation in the range (performance - avoid goal), and the average scores of the sample members in the field were not statistically significant.

- The sample has a high level of self-worth, and the average scores of the sample individuals on the self-merit scale were statistically significant.

- There is a positive functional correlational relationship between the goal orientation in two areas, (mastery goals) and the goals of (performance – avoid goals) and the self-worthiness of students at Anbar University. On the contrary, there is a negative functional correlational relationship between orientation towards the goal in the field of goals (performance – avoid goals) and self-worthiness of Anbar University students.

In light of the research results, the researcher recommends a set of recommendations and suggestions.
