Classroom Structures

Classroom structures are the ways classrooms are organized around learning tasks and participation and the ways goals and rewards are defined.

Task Structures

The work students are expected to do in classrooms and the cognitive and social demands placed on them as they perform particular lessons are called task structures.

The way lessons are arranged and the learning demands that lessons place on students.

goal reward structures
Goal/Reward Structures

(1) Cooperative goal structures exist when students perceive they can achieve their goal if, and only if, the other students with whom they are working can also reach the goal.

(2) Competitive goal structures exist when students perceive they can reach their goal only if other students do not reach the goal.

(3) Individualistic goal structures exist when students perceive that their achievement of a goal is unrelated to achievement of a goal by other students.
