The following goals were examined: Economic goals, Self- realizing goals, Social status related goals, Love and family related goals and Academic goals. Bivariate correlational analysis was performed to examine the relationship between the products and various instances of motivation. The results found that students were mostly motivated by self-realizing goals, in addition, to academic goals and the most salient types of motivation for these were intrinsic motivation and identified regulation.
