Abstract

The control-value theory of academic emotions by Pekrun (2006) contends that students' emotional experiences in achievement-related situations have sources from the appraisals students make about the importance and value of academic tasks they engage in. The present study looked into Filipino students' structure of academic emotions, as well as intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as antecedents of academic emotions, upon the assumption that students' motivations are shaped by their appraisals of importance and value of schooling. Results showed that intrinsic motivation had a positive predictive utility on positive emotions but negatively associated with any negative types of emotions. Extrinsic motivation positively predicted negative emotions. The predictive utility of the specific dimensions of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation on academic emotions were also analyzed, and results supported most of the hypotheses. © 2011 De La Salle University, Philippines.
