Abstract:   (1967 Views)

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between self-determination, expectancy-value beliefs and future time perspective in high school students. To this purpose, 186 high school students (88 boys and 98 girls) were selected by stratified random sampling. The research tools included: Expectancy-Value Questionnaire, Basic Psychological Needs Scale and Future Time Perspective Scale. For data analysis, one sample t-test, independent sampels t-test and Pearson correlation coefficient were used. Results indicated that participants in self-determination and its dimensions (autonomy, competence, communication), value expectation and its dimensions (except the component of understanding the difficulty of the task) and the future time perspective and its components (except the component of focus on opportunity), had a score higher than average. Also, results revealed that there was a positive and significant relationship between self-determination and expectancy-value beliefs; but there was no significant relationship between self-determination and future time perspective. According to the results, there was a significant difference between the male and female students in self-determination, but there was no significant difference between the two groups in the expectancy-value beliefs future time perspective.
