Monica Sanvik EEC 215 Quiz 3 1) Please describe the differences between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. As you do so, be sure to explain the concept of Psychological Need Satisfaction and its components: Autonomy, Competence, and Relatedness. (20 pts) (Type Here) Motivation is any force that energizes and directs behavior. There are two different types of motivation. Extrinsic motivation is environmentally created reasons to initiate persist in an action or activity. Extrinsic motivation is external and it depends on rewards and punishments. There is intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation is motivation that is internal, and the three psychological needs. First there is autonomy, which is the psychological need to experience self-direction in the initiation and regulation of one’s behavior. It represents students’ inner endorsement of his or her action. There is high and low autonomy. An example of high autonomy is when a student is feeling like he or she is doing something because they want to. An example of low autonomy is when a student is feeling like they are doing something because they have to or because others are making them do it. The second psychological need is competence, which is to be effective during interactions with surrounding environment. Competence intrinsic motivation is to seek out, take on, and master such challenges. For example, learn a new foreign language, like Spanish or French. When learning a new language the environment is an important aspect, through the guidance and feedback. If a student is learning a new language and he or she is surrounded by other students who fluently speak that language, the student will develop mastery of the language. The third psychological need is relatedness intrinsic, which establishes close emotional bonds and attachments with other people. In this psychological need students are drawn to people they trust, to care and look out for them. For example, a student looks up to a teacher, because the student has trust in the teacher as well as knows that the teacher cares both about his or her physical and mental needs. 2) Page 342 contains a section on the hidden cost of rewards. Please 1) summarize the concepts presented and 2) relate this discussion to practices you observed in the field at Franklin. (It is ok to be affirming or critical in this setting.) (10 pts) (Type Here) Hidden cost of reward is the unexpected, unintended, and adverse effects that extrinsic rewards sometimes have on intrinsic motivation, high- quality learning, and self-regulation.

I asked her if she liked to read, and she said no but my parents take me someone, buy me a toy, or give me money when I make it to the next reading level, which took about 20 book s I think. This increased her motivation to read, and is

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
