Summary/Abstract: The present exploratory study focuses on a cross-sectional analysis of personal goals dimensional assessments in a Romanian student sample, at three educational stages: 12th grade, first year in university and final year of university. Using the Personal Goals Investigation Procedure, we examined goals in three life domains: school, professional development and personal life. On the one hand we aimed at analyzing between-subjects differences in goal dimensional assessments due to educational level and previous work experiences. On the other hand we were interested in investigating possible gender differences in the assessment of personal goals. The results of the study bring forward valuable information on how students define their ecological intentional pursuits and can be integrated in applied intervention programs for this age-group.
