A similar pattern of results has emerged in the physical education context (Walling & Duda, 1995), as well as in research with college students participating in a variety of physical activity classes (Guivernau, Thorne, & Duda, 1994a; Kavussanu & Roberts, 1996b; Roberts, Treasure, & Kavussanu, 1996). The belief that ability is an antecedent of success may be detrimental for physical activity and sport participants of all ability levels. For the lowperceived-ability individual, this belief will most likely lead to frustration, a lack of confidence, and even to dropping out.

Cury, Sarrazin, and Famose (1997) have confirmed that task- and egooriented participants use different information to judge their competence. While performing a motor task, task-oriented participants used less-objective information to evaluate their performance, allowing them to evaluate the extent of their progress. Ego-oriented participants used normative information to estimate the value of a performance, as long as it did not include information about their weaknesses. Thus, egooriented participants were not concerned with learning but instead with gaining an understanding of their position relative to others.

Elliot has developed a six-item questionnaire, as have Middleton and Midgely; Skaalvik has developed a seven-item scale.
