Introduction: Attention to the role of moral character and locus of control in predicting the acheivment goals is one of the topics that has received less attention in previous research; The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between the moral character of patience and the achievement goals with the mediation of the locus of control.
Methods: The statistical population this study was all undergraduate students of Shiraz University. 450 students were selected as sample group by multi-stage random cluster sampling; they complete the subscales of Khormaei & Ghaemi's Patience Scale, Levenson's Locus of Control Questionnaire, and Elliot's Achievement Goals Scale. After entering the data into spss-24 statistical software and analyzing the data based on descriptive statistics indices, path analysis was used for data analysis.
Results: The results showed that the moral character of patience had a significant positive effect on the performance approach (P-Value=0.03, =0.11) and mastery approach (P-Value=0.0001, =0.30). The internal locus of control also mediates the relationship between patience and all three goals of performance approach, mastery approach & mastery avoidance. The external locus of control is also able to mediate the relationship between patience and performance approach and mastery avoidance.
Conclusion: The results of the present study helped to increase the theoretical knowledge regarding the ethical antecedents of the Achievement goal. Practically, it is also possible to help better shape the achievement goals by teaching Patience moral character as teachable personality trait and documentary retraining (Locus of control).
