The relationship between language learning motivation and foreign language achievement as mediated by perfectionism: the case of high school EFL learners

Abstract

This study examined the mediating effect of perfectionism on the relationship between language learning and foreign language achievement of high school EFL learners. To this end, 400 eleventh grade high school students were recruited through cluster random sampling. They were selected from eight high schools in four cities of Iran (i.e., Tehran, Ahvaz, Semnan, and Kerman). Afterwards, two questionnaires were administered to the participants. The first questionnaire was the shortened form of Gardner’s Attitude/Motivation Test Battery (AMTB) for EFL learners, and the second one was Almost Perfect Scale-Revised (APS-R) measuring the level of perfectionism among respondents. Moreover, the participants’ scores on the English final exam held by Iran’s Ministry of Education was considered as the indicator of foreign language achievement. The obtained data were analyzed through Pearson correlations and bootstrap resampling statistical method. The results indicated a positive correlation between all variables. Furthermore, it was revealed that language achievement and language learning motivation were partially mediated by perfectionism.

Strategic SCM’s Mediating Effect on the Sustainable Operations: Multinational Perspective

Abstract

Background and Purpose: The comparative cross-sectional study examines the strategic supply chain management’s mediating effect on the sustainable operations through environmental and social sustainability within the businesses operating in Canada, Iran and Turkey to attain global perspective.

Methodology: Over 200 small businesses in each country are included through combining purposive sampling, referrals, networking, and connections. For quantitative data analysis, the Smart partial least square structural equation modeling (SmartPLS-SEM) is employed.

Results: Results showed that there is statistically significant positive mediating role of strategic supply chain on the sustainable operations (environmental and social sustainable) performances in all three selected economies. Findings further confirmed that within the multinational perspective, the SCM factors have higher significant positive impact within Canada in contrast to Iran and Turkey.

Conclusion: This study offers a new theoretical contribution by examining the mediating role of strategic supply chain from multinational perspective to enhance existing body of knowledge. Furthermore, it offers a practical contribution by providing the strategic research framework to facilitate managers in improving the small businesses’ performance in sustaining operations.

Influence of Goal Contents on Exercise Addiction: Analysing the Mediating Effect of Passion for Exercise

Chu, 2007 ), which identified OP as a precursor to addiction in various contexts, including exercise. Nonetheless, our results also showed a mediating effect of HP although of a lesser intensity compared to that of OP, when the relationship between goal contents and EA was analysed. These results were unexpected given the weak or null predictor effect that the previous studies had given to HP on behavioural addictions. Future studies should look more deeply into the possible role that HP can have when predicting EA from different motivational factors. In addition

significant path of EI → perceived stress → psychological wellbeing. Consistent with previous studies in non-athletic samples, people with high trait EI are likely to perceive greater social support from others and report higher levels of wellbeing indicators ( Schiffrin and Nelson, 2010 ). Our findings on the mediation of perceived social support in association between EI and wellbeing support the Gallagher and Vella-Brodrick’s (2008) claim that perceived social support functioned as a partial mediator of the relationship between EI and wellbeing.
