Urdan and Maehr (1995) called for the resurrection of social goal orientations and highlighted their importance in achievement behaviour; suggesting a wide range of social goal orientations reflecting the wide variety of potential social bonds. , to feel a sense of belonging). Stuntz and Weiss (2003) claimed that there is a multitude of conceptually and meaningfully distinct types of social relationship, and so there must be a corresponding variety of potential social goals. On the basis of this, they also suggest that the ‗social approval orientation‘ originally included in AGT only partially addressed the desire to maintain positive social relationships, even before it was largely ignored during ensuing period of research that focused on task and ego goals.

Cury, Da Fonseco, Rufo & Sarrazin (2002) – using the PECCS - reported a negative association between perceived performance climate and perceived competence, as did Sarrazin et al. (2002). The central conclusion that can be drawn from this research is that perceptions of a mastery climate appear to link strongly with participants‘ perceived competence which is not the case for perceptions of a performance climate. In fact, in some cases a perceived performance climate is linked with lower perceptions of competence.

In contrast all the above-listed studies also reported a positive association between perceptions of a performance climate and anxiety, worry, distress, and dissatisfaction with the team. Hence, when participants perceive performance climates, they are usually prone to experience negative feelings, while those perceiving a mastery climate are usually not. On current evidence, therefore, one could argue that the creation of a mastery climate by important social agents should lead to less negative affect than a strong performance (comparative, win-at-all costs) climate.
