Reinforcement, Reward, and Intrinsic Motivation: A Meta-Analysis.
Cameron, Judy; Pierce, W. David
Review of Educational Research, v64 n3 p363-423 Fall 1994
A meta-analysis including 96 experimental studies considers the effects of reinforcement/reward on intrinsic motivation. Results indicate that reward does not decrease intrinsic motivation, although interaction effects must be examined. An analysis with five studies also indicates that reinforcement does not harm intrinsic motivation. (SLD)
