What Works in Schools

Chapter 15. Student Motivation

The link between student motivation and achievement is straightforward. If students are motivated to learn the content in a given subject, their achievement in that subject will most likely be good. If students are not motivated to learn the content, their achievement will likely be limited. The validity of this relationship is supported by a fair amount of research, some of which is summarized in Figure 15.1. Except for that reported by Steinkamp and Maehr (1983), the correlations (and their related effect sizes) reported in Figure 15.1 are relatively large attesting to the impact of motivation on learning.
