This study investigated how classroom goal structures (mastery and performance goal structures) related to intrinsic motivation and peer modeling focusing on teachers’ promoting interaction as a classroom level mediator. Authors tested multilevel mediational models with a sample of 1212 Japanese elementary and junior high school students from 43 classrooms. Results provided support for classroom level mediational process in mastery goal structures. Specifically, mastery goal structures related to promoting interaction, and promoting interactions related to both intrinsic motivation and peer modeling. Limitations and future directions of the study were discussed.
