Example text

With the large body of research showing the substantial advantages of autonomous rather than controlled motivation for the desired educational outcomes of conceptual learning, effective performance, and psychological well-being, it seems ever more clear that approaches to education reform that are based primarily on incentives, pressures, and controls for motivating effective education are misguided and lack an evidence base. Goals and Motives The concept of goals has been a central one in the study of motivation for half a century.

2 Optimizing Students’ Motivation in the Era of Testing and Pressure… 15 Internalization can, however, function more effectively with people coming to understand the value of uninteresting behaviors for themselves and thus being willing to accept responsibility for those behaviors. In SDT this is referred to as identified regulation and is indicative of people being volitional in carrying out the behaviors because they act from a sense of the behaviors’ value. Thus, whereas external and introjected regulations are relatively controlling, identified regulation is relatively autonomous.

In the experiments done in schools, researchers manipulated people’s goals with respect to specific learning opportunities. For example, when junior college students were learning about sustainability, some were told that their learning about recycling and reusing could help them save money (an extrinsic goal), while others were told that the learning would help them contribute to the community (an intrinsic goal). , 2004). This intrinsic goal effect was especially strong if the goals were communicated in an autonomy-supportive way.
