This study explored whether students' task value and self-efficacy would enhance their commitment and achievement in a WBI class in Taiwan. This study compared students' commitment, achievement, self-efficacy, and task value with and without a training workshop that was designed to increase students' commitment and achievement. The results of this study included: (a) the higher task value students' perceived, the stronger commitment they made; (b) The higher self-efficacy students held, the easier the task was perceived; (c) The training workshop had positive impacts on students' perceived self-efficacy, interest, and importance.
