Researching the Quest: Are Community College Students Motivated by Question-and-Answer Reviews?
Cavendish, Don F., Jr.
Inquiry, v15 n1 p81-90 2010
Any effort to assess the motivational techniques employed by community college faculty is complicated by the inter-connectedness of motivational techniques and teaching techniques, as improved teaching results in improved motivation. Nonetheless, this research poses a motivation-related question: Does the use of daily question-and-answer reviews motivate community college students to read the text, review previous class notes, study, attend class regularly, or generally prepare for class in an active manner? More specifically, the effectiveness of the question-and-answer review technique that the author has dubbed the Quest and that he uses at Virginia Western Community College (VWCC) is at the heart of this research study.
