The main purpose of this study was to investigate the views of students regarding motivational techniques used by the heads of secondary schools in Punjab. The main objective of this study was to identify the students' opinions about the performance of the teachers. The nature of this study was descriptive, and the population constituted 748,124 students at the secondary level in Punjab. Fifteen out of 34 districts in the province of Punjab were randomly selected and cluster sampling was used in order to choose 300 secondary schools for the sample. Ten students from each school were included in this sample, and it was further divided equally into male and female as well as urban and rural. The questionnaires were the research instruments for data collection. The data were tabulated, analyzed, and interpreted by using the most suitable statistical tools like mean, standard deviation, standard error of the difference between means, and two-tailed t-test. On the basis of analysis, it was concluded that a greater part of students fairly agreed that their teachers appreciated the students' performances openly, criticized them in a constructive way, maintained discipline in the class, chided the students on their mistakes, gave feedback in academic matter, solved their problem, and trusted in the students.
