KEEP Motivational Research: Strategy and Results. Technical Report #24.
Gallimore, Ronald; Tharp, Roland G.
This report briefly summarizes the motivation research strategy and results from the Kamehameha Early Education Program (KEEP). The rationale behind KEEP's use of on-task behavior to measure student motivation is discussed and the two strategies of motivation enhancement researched are described. These two strategies were: (1) staff training in the systematic use of behavior management techniques and (2) classroom formats and organization which increase student attentiveness and productivity. Information is presented on the background for choosing these strategies, the procedures involved in implementing them, and the results of research evaluating their effectiveness in increasing student motivation.
