While task-involving climate encourages effort and rewards task mastery and individual improvement. Of the two, a task-involving climate consistently has been associated with more positive outcomes for students, including greater perceptions of physical competence (Newton & Duda, 1999; Treasure, 1997), enjoyment in participation (Ntounamis & Biddle, 1999), higher self-esteem (Slutzky & Simpkins, 2009), desire to stay involve in the activity (Duda & Ntounamis, 2009) and persisting in activity (Le Bars, Gernigo & Ninot, 2009).
