    In this report the focus is the students? beliefs and understandings of their capacity to withstand setbacks and form positive goals for the future. The purpose of this study is to investigate the beliefs of adolescents. This study is part of a wider project ? Influences on students? learning goals and their capacity for self-regulation. This broader project evolved from the concern that there has been a decrease in school engagement and increased alienation among middle school students and that through interventions that are in keeping with curriculum needs, teachers may be able to influence the students? approach to learning.
