Setting Higher Expectations: Motivating Middle Graders to Succeed

Research Summary

By: Elsa Cantú Ruiz

“Over the past half century, research on how to motivate students has undergone transformations along multiple dimensions. The focus in classroom motivation research has shifted from extrinsic to intrinsic and from behavioral to cognitive. In this research summary we will briefly describe those changes and argue that a modern view of how students are motivated should be based on a combination of traditional and revised principles. Our hope is that a better understanding of these principles can provide a foundation for a better understanding of individual differences.”
