Abstract: This study reports results from a Finnish survey for grade 4 and grade 8 students (N = 927). The survey measured students’ mathematics related achievement goal orientation, attitude and beliefs. The results confirm the reliability of used instruments and they indicate that the structure of grade 8 student’s view of mathematics is more coherent than on grade 4. Students’ mastery goal orientation is primarily correlated to students’ positive attitude and self-efficacy. Moreover, students’ performance orientation is positively correlated with self-efficacy and this relationship is stronger among older students. On grade 8, performance orientation has a positive correlation also with attitude.
