Résumé
We adopted an achievement goal complex framework (studying achievement goals and
reasons connected to goals) to determine when and why performance goals predict
exploitation of others’ knowledge. We hypothesized that: (i) when selective assessment is
used, the link between performance goals and exploitation orientation is stronger; (ii) the
reason why is that selective assessment fosters performance goals regulated by controlled
reasons. Study 1 (N = 166) supported these hypotheses in a “real world” environment,
comparing students enrolled in programs using non-selective vs. selective assessment (but
having a majority of common courses). Then, an experimental causal-chain-like design was
used. In Study 2 (N = 187), presenting an intelligence test as selective (vs. [self-]evaluative)
predicted controlled reasons connected to performance goals. In Study 3 (N = 192), inducing
performance goals using controlling (vs. autonomy-supportive) language predicted
exploitation orientation, indirectly impairing information-sharing behaviors. The results
contribute to the understanding of both the structural antecedents and interpersonal
consequences of achievement goal complexes.
