Example text

It follows from this theory that delinquent adolescents should have goals, though these goals will in some respect be very different from those of their nondelinquent peers. , Emler & Reicher, 1995), it has yet to elaborate on how they are formulated and how they develop in response to experience in illegal activity and peer feedback. In this chapter, we have proposed an account of the salience of goals in the development of delinquent reputations by drawing upon Goal-Setting Theory (Locke & Latham, 1990).

Socioeconomic status, age, family, ethnicity, and gender are examples of these resources. There are two major types of goals based on academic and/or social goals, the latter of which can be further divided into conforming or nonconforming social goals.

According to Locke and Latham (1990), a linear relationship exists between the degree of goal difficulty and performance, with performance levels increasing as the goal becomes more challenging. The more challenging a goal, the greater the performance, as individuals are thought to be more motivated and prepared to try harder to attain the goal. Five metaanalyses comparing the effects of specific, hard goals versus ‘‘do your best’’ goals or no assigned goals were summarized by Locke and Latham (1990).
