The Relational-Behavior Model: The Relationship between Intrinsic Motivational Instruction and Extrinsic Motivation in Psychologically Based Instruction
Chandler, Donald S., Jr.
Online Submission
This pilot study examined the relational-behavior model (RBM) as a method of intrinsic motivational instruction in psychology courses. Among a sample of 33 college students enrolled in two undergraduate psychology courses, a Spearman rho analysis revealed a significant relationship between the intrinsic motivational factors (e.g. student/class participation) and the extrinsic motivational factors (e.g. work completion and class attendance). Specifically, the results suggested that the psychology instructors who provided more student/class participation were more likely to have high class attendance and work completion. Additional studies examining the relationship between intrinsic motivational instruction and extrinsic motivation in psychology courses was recommended. (Contains 5 tables.)
