Part of my research has focused on the elaboration of a hierarchical integrated model of individual values, motivations for studying, and study-related achievement goals, so I have worked extensively with Shalom Schwartz's Basic Human Values Theory, Self-Determination Theory, and Achievement Goal Theory. I have used this model to explore the motivational underpinnings of various types of academic cheating and have also worked more recently with theories on morality, moral disengagement, and academic dishonesty. I am currently working on integrating social goals and intergroup relations in this model.

Some of my past research work has explored the impact of assessment practices on student motivation, focusing particularly on how classroom grades and comment-based assessments influence motivational patterns among students.
