Sažetak

Engagement has an important role in education, so it is
necessary to enrich our understanding of the motivational
processes underlying engagement. In this research, it was
investigated whether subjective task values and self-worth
contingencies predict behavioral, cognitive and emotional
engagement in physics. The mediating effects of achievement
goals on the relationships of subjective task values and self-
-worth contingencies with three dimensions of engagement
were also tested. Participants were 411 high-school pupils.
Data were collected by The Engagement Scale, The
Subjective Task Values Scale, The Contingencies of Self-Worth
Scale and The Achievement Goals Scale. The results showed
that the context-specific dimensions of engagement were
better predicted by subjective task values and achievement
goals, which were also context-specific, than by self-worth
contingencies, which were context-general. Furthermore,
results of the mediation analysis confirmed the assumption of
the hierarchical model of approach – avoidance motivation,
that the achievement goals mediate the relationships of
subjective task values and self-worth contingencies with
engagement.
