This study was designed to investigate to association between motivational action conflict frequency and value orientation as well as sociodemographic correlates of value orientation among Turkish high school students.

Results of this study suggested that students have average well-being value orientation and low achievement value orientation. There was no significant association between achievement and well-being value orientation and school-leisure time conflict; however, a weak and positive significant relationship exist between achievement value orientation and school time-school time conflict and leisure time-leisure time conflict, and there was a negative low-level significant relationship between well-being value orientation and school time-school time conflict and leisure time-leisure time conflict. The students’ achievement and well-being value orientation were significantly different based on gender and daily studying times. Well-being value orientation associated with high school type, but no significant difference found in achievement value orientation.
