Performance Approach (PA) Mean $= \frac{\text{PA1 + PA2 + PA3}}{3}$

Mastery Avoidance (MAv) $= \frac{\text{MAv1 + MAv2 + MAv3}}{3}$

Mastery Approach (MA) $ = \frac{\text{MA1 + MA2 + MA3}}{3}$

Performance Avoidance (PAv) $= \frac{\text{PAv1 + PAv2 + PAv3}}{3}$

 

To compare yourself with the other 190 students who have already taken this test, take a look at the their average.
