Carelessness and Goal Orientation in a Science Microworld
In this paper, we study the relationship between goal orientation within a science inquiry learning environment for middle school students and carelessness, i.e., not demonstrating an inquiry skill despite knowing it. Carelessness is measured based on a machine-learned model. We find, surprisingly, that carelessness is higher for students with strong mastery or learning goals, compared to students who lack strong goal orientation.
