Motivational Orientations Re-Visited: Life-Space Motives and the Education Participation Scale
Boshier, Roger
Adult Education, 27, 2, 89-115, Win 77
Part of a model developed to explain dropout from adult education programs was tested. The model describes adult education participants as life-chance (lower socioeconomic groups) or life-space (upper socioeconomic groups) oriented, with life-chance being synonymous with defiency motivation and life-space being synonymous with growth motivation. Although several hypotheses concerning dropouts were confirmed, it was argued that further research concerning adult student motivation is needed. (SH)
