dc.description.abstractGuided by achievement goal theory, this study attempted to explain the motivational underpinnings of the generational status achievement gap in higher education. It did so by examining the achievement goal adoption and generational status of incoming freshmen and transfer students and how these relate to their first-semester GPAs (N = 351). A potential interaction effect between mastery-approach goals and generational status was also assessed. Results from a hierarchical multiple regression indicated that while there was a generational status achievement gap present in the sample, achievement goal adoption did not explain much of it. Implications of these unexpected findings are discussed.en_US
