- A2 Physical Education Motivation and Achievement Motivation
- Remind ourselves of the definitions: Drive and desire needed for continued effort. External stimuli and internal mechanisms that arouse and direct behaviour Two parts: Inner drive comes from our own satisfaction and need to do task External rewards what we want to win Types of Motivation Intrinsic comes from within pride satisfaction can be promoted by achieving personal goals. Extrinsic outside source tangible and intangible Definitions of Motivation
- Early research suggested that intrinsic and extrinsic motivators are addictive so more the merrier. However some research suggested that extrinsic rewards can undermine intrinsic motivation. We need to look at one particular theory on this. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation
- CDT suggests that anything that effects a persons perception of competence and self- determination will ultimately effect their intrinsic motivation. (Deci 1975) Cognitive evaluation theory A theory developed by Deci according to which extrinsic rewards are perceived to be either informational or controlling
- CDT suggests that anything that effects a persons perception of and will ultimately effect their intrinsic motivation. Keywords explained To function effectively or be effective or have a level of skill Being in control - autonomy
- Perceived locus of causality (external) Cause of behaviour lies outside the person Intrinsic motivation decreases Positive Information of competence Increased perceived competence Intrinsic motivation increases Negative information of competence Decreased perceived competence Intrinsic motivation decreases Perceived locus Of causality (internal) Cause of behaviour lies inside the person Intrinsic motivation increases Informational aspect of a reward Controlling aspect of a reward
- Perceived locus of causality (external) Cause of behaviour lies outside the person Intrinsic motivation decreases Perceived locus Of causality (internal) Cause of behaviour lies inside the person Intrinsic motivation increases Controlling aspect of a reward Cognitive evaluation theory L of C what causes a persons behaviour
- If reward outside and controlling behaviour then this reduces intrinsic motivation. I.e. controlled by pressure to win or only playing for the money, to conform to coaches demands and expectations. Athlete becomes in the position of a pawn who is acted upon. People who are intrinsically motivated feel they do something for themselves - they are self-determined. - increases intrinsic motivation. Control aspects of reward
- A 10 year old boy agrees to run 5 mile race with his Dad. As a further incentive to training Dad promises him a sum of money Boy refuses a second go at the race with his father the following year because he says whats in it for me? Why did the boy lose interest? Because he perceived that the primary reason for running was the money money controls his behaviour. Not doing it for intrinsic fun factors Example..
- 6 controls used by coaches that undermine intrinsic motivation: 1. Tangible rewards 2. Controlling feedback e.g. A coach who only gives negative feedback and not positive 3. Excessive personal control e.g. A coach who interacts with athletes in an authoritative manner, commanding them to do things 4. Intimidation behaviours e.g. Coaches who uses the threat of punishments to push athletes to work harder 5. Promoting ego-involvement e.g. Coach evaluation an athlete's performance in front of their peers 6. Conditional regard e.g. A coach who says things to make a athletes feel guilt - you let me down Research suggests..
- Positive Information of competence Increased perceived competence Intrinsic motivation increases Negative information of competence Decreased perceived competence Intrinsic motivation decreases Informational aspect of a reward
- If an external reward provides feedback that increases a persons sense of competence and self- determination this leads to an increase in intrinsic motivation Informational Aspects
- A 13 year old girl competed in a singles tennis competition and won an award for accomplishment The certificate stated in recognition of your placing in the top ten of the City Tournament This is positive feedback about her performance giving the girl a feeling of competence and self- determination Increased intrinsic motivation goes on to play several more tournaments. Example
- That every external reward has two aspects o Controlling aspect and informational aspect A change in locus of control from internal to external is associated with a loss of self-determination and control Not the actual strength of the reward but the perceived strength of the controlling or informational aspect that makes the difference The theory indicates the potential danger of rewards but also highlights the information value they give rewards that give positive feedback on ability often lead to greater intrinsic motivation C.E. Theory Key points Links to reinforcement
- If an athlete perceives the locus of causality as internal then this promotes intrinsic motivation e.g. Sport and exercise programmes that provide individuals with opportunities for input about choice of activities, personal goals, team objectives - results in higher intrinsic motivation. Informational aspects of rewards - information that effects how competent we feel. E.g. Receiving most valuable player award reinforces someone's opinion on their competency. In summary for a reward to be successful they need to be about specific levels of performance or behaviour.
- If a coach is always negative in their approach an athlete can internalise this negativity as negatives about their value and worth and this can lower intrinsic motivation. Third major element of CET is whether an athlete perceives a reward as controlling or informational e.g. Giving trophies to recognise a reams or individuals achieves may seem good but depends in whether an athlete perceives this as information on their competency or controlling their behaviour. In general perceived choice ads positive feedback bring out informational aspects whereas rewards deadlines and surveillance make the controlling aspect more noticeable. Example of wrestling student performer who was given lots of control and positive feedback but still lacked intrinsic motivation because father had forces him to join team.
- an individuals motivation to strive for success, which enables the individual to persist even when he or she meets obstacles and perhaps failure (Woods, 1998, P2) Motive to achieve success defined as: the capacity to experience pride in accomplishments Motive to avoid failure defined as:the capacity to experience shame in failure (Gill, 2000, p104) Achievement Motivation
- Personality Factors Motive to achieve success Motive to avoid failure Situational Factors Probability of success Incentive value of success Resultant Tendency Approach success Avoid failure Emotional Reactions Focus on pride of success Focus on shame of failure Achievement Behaviour Seek out achievement situations Look for challenges Enhanced performance Avoid achievement situations Avoid risk (Challenges) Perform poorly = =
- High achiever Low achiever Motivational orientation High motivation to achieve success Low motivation to avoid failure Focuses on the pride of success Low motivation to achieve success High motivation to avoid failure Focuses on shame and worry that may result from failure Attributions Ascribes success to stable and internal factors Ascribes failure to unstable and external factors Ascribes success to unstable and external factors Ascribes failure to stable and internal factors within ones control Goals adopted Usually adopts task goals Usually adopts outcome goals Perceived competence and control Has high perceived competence and believes that achievement is within own control Has low perceived competence and believes that achievement is outside own control Task Choice Seeks out challenges and able competitors and tasks Avoids challenges; seeks out very difficult or very easy tasks and competitors Performance conditions Perform well in evaluative conditions Performs badly in evaluative conditions Foundations of Sport and Exercise Psychology, Weinberg, Daniel Gould
- n.Ach n.Af Seeks challenges Standards are important Persists for longer Values feedback Enjoys evaluation situation (likes to be tested) Not afraid of failure Takes responsibility for own actions Optimistic Confident Task goal orientated Attributes performance to internal factors e.g. Success = effort failure = lack of effort Avoids challenge takes easy option
