Abstract
The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy, trait anxiety and motivational climate when it comes to students at Lund University (n=121). A quantitative survey was performed online with General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) and Motivational Climate at Work Questionnaire (MCWQ) as the measuring instruments. Although multiple regression analysis showed that trait anxiety is indeed a significant predictor (p<.001) when explaining self-efficacy, the same could not be said about the motivational climate. In a similar manner, a partial correlation showed that the motivational climate didn’t affect the relationship between self-efficacy and trait anxiety. The correlation... (More)

In a similar manner, a partial correlation showed that the motivational climate didn’t affect the relationship between self-efficacy and trait anxiety. The correlation coefficient was the same (r=-.66) when controlling for motivational climate. A t-test showed no significant difference in trait anxiety between students at the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Faculty of Law. We did however find a significant result when comparing students’ scores for motivational climate. Students at the Faculty of Law scored significantly higher (p<.001) on performance oriented motivational climate, and significantly lower (p=.007) on mastery oriented motivational climate, compared to students at the Faculty of Social Sciences. In conclusion, the motivational climate in a university setting needs further analysis with more complex designs than what we have in our study.

Abstract (Swedish)
Studien syftade till att undersöka förhållandet mellan self-efficacy, trait anxiety och motivationsklimat hos studenter på Lunds Universitet (n=121). En kvantitativ enkätundersökning genomfördes online med mätinstrumenten General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) samt Motivational Climate at Work Questionnaire (MCWQ). En multipel regressionsanalys visade att trait anxiety är en signifikant prediktor (p <,001) för att förklara self-efficacy, men att motivationsklimatet inte hade någon påverkan på variabeln. På samma sätt så visade en partiell korrelation att motivationsklimatet inte hade en påverkan på sambandet mellan self-efficacy och trait anxiety, då korrelationskoefficienten var densamma efter att kontroll...

Studien syftade till att undersöka förhållandet mellan self-efficacy, trait anxiety och motivationsklimat hos studenter på Lunds Universitet (n=121). En kvantitativ enkätundersökning genomfördes online med mätinstrumenten General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE), State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) samt Motivational Climate at Work Questionnaire (MCWQ). En multipel regressionsanalys visade att trait anxiety är en signifikant prediktor (p <,001) för att förklara self-efficacy, men att motivationsklimatet inte hade någon påverkan på variabeln. På samma sätt så visade en partiell korrelation att motivationsklimatet inte hade en påverkan på sambandet mellan self-efficacy och trait anxiety, då korrelationskoefficienten var densamma efter att kontroll för motivationsklimatet gjordes (r=-,66). Ingen signifikant skillnad i trait anxiety hittades i det t-test som gjordes för att se skillnader mellan den samhällsvetenskapliga- och juridiska fakulteten. Samma test visade dock på en signifikant skillnad i upplevelsen att tillhöra ett visst motivationsklimat, då både det resultatinriktade- (p <,001) och uppgiftsinriktade motivationsklimatet (p=,007) skilde sig åt mellan fakulteterna. Motivationsklimatet behöver alltjämt undersökas ytterligare i universitetsmiljö med designer som är mer komplexa än den vi har använt oss av i denna studie.
