What is the truth of your classroom? Teacher to student knowledge transfer (TSKT) is the teaching theory of education. So, learning is transferred to the students to achieve high grade performance in school system. At the end of academic year, the teacher’s work performance is also evaluated by observing student’s grade performance in the particular subject. So, goal oriented task operation (GOTO) is defined in classroom to determine optimal learning success. In this way, the grade result becomes the truth of classroom performance. We know that passion flows from the purpose of learning and working. Goal oriented task operation (GOTO) may be useful to effective knowledge transfer in classroom system.
Goal orientation is the degree to which a person or organization focuses on tasks and the end results of those goal oriented tasks. Strong goal orientation advocates a focus on the ends that the tasks are made for instead of the tasks themselves and how those ends will affect either the teacher or the entire classroom. Those students with strong goal orientation will be able to accurately judge the effects of reaching the goal as well as the ability to fulfill that particular goal with current resources and skills.
Goal oriented task operation of the students is learning goal orientation as the desire to develop the self by acquiring new skills, mastering new situations and improving one’s competence. Students with learning goal orientation seek feedback from the teacher on past performance to evaluate current performance. These individuals focus on improving skills and acquiring knowledge, and are less concerned with making mistakes.
The adoption of mastery specific goal leads to greater intrinsic purpose and motivation as opposed to performance approach or performance avoid which are associated with external motivation. One area where this can be seen as important is in the area of curriculum design and respective source books. When designing learning environments for students, it is important to create opportunities that promote learning goals as opposed to teaching performance goals. One possible implication for educators is the need to emphasize knowledge-centered classroom environments that encourage the students for doing with understanding, especially from book to brain knowledge transfer.
Metacognition is conceptualized as an individual’s knowledge and regulation over one’s own cognitions. Individuals high in metacognitive awareness are skilled at monitoring their progress towards goal oriented task operation. Meta cognition helps them in identifying their strengths and weaknesses and adjusting their learning strategies accordingly to achieve favorable outcomes.
When individuals have the opportunity to seek feedback from the teacher or other students, they face a cognitive dilemma between the need for self-assessment and the need for self-enhancement. Since individuals with a learning goal orientation are interested in developing competencies, they are more likely to interpret feedback positively and thus engage in more feedback-seeking behaviors to enhance performance. These individuals interpret feedback as valuable information about how to correct errors and improve future performance on a given task.
It is fact that feedback helps to update the task operation. Achievement orientation refers to how an individual interprets and reacts to tasks, resulting in different patterns of cognition, effects and behavior. Developed within a social-cognitive framework, achievement goal theory proposes that students’ motivation and achievement-related behaviors can be understood by considering the reasons or purposes they adopt while engaged in academic work.
The focus of task processing is on how students think about themselves, their tasks and their performance. In general, an individual can be said to be mastery or performance oriented, based on whether one’s goal is to develop one’s ability or to demonstrate one’s ability, respectively. Achievement orientations have been shown to be associated with individuals’ academic achievement, adjustment and well-being.
