Level of Aspiration Reflects behavior patterns that portray the degree to which achievement levels and academic activities are consistent with students' perceptions of their scholastic potentialities.
AnxietyReflects behavior patterns and perceptions associated with emotional instability, lack of objectivity and heightened or exaggerated concern about tests and preserving self-esteem in relation to academic performance.
Academic Interest and SatisfactionPortrays the degree of intrinsic motivation, involving love of learning for its own sake gained by students in doing academic work and in studying new subject matter.
Leadership and InitiativeRepresents those behavior patterns and perceptions that are associated with star-like qualities, as when a student demonstrates mastery of knowledge and willingness and ability to help and give guidance to others, and takes pride without display of conceit in the capability of doing a job quickly and well.
Identification vs. AlienationRepresents the extent to which a student feels accepted by the academic community and respected by teachers and peers for his or her own personal worth and integrity as opposed to feeling isolated or rejected by the academic environment.
