Making the grade : a self-worth perspective on motivation and school reform by Martin V Covington( Book )
16 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 667 libraries worldwide
Achievement behaviour in schools can best be understood in terms of attempts by students to maintain a positive self-image. For many students, trying hard is frightening because a combination of effort and failure implies low ability, which is often equated with worthlessness. Thus many students described as unmotivated are in actuality highly motivated - not to learn, but to avoid failure. Students have a variety of techniques for avoiding failure, ranging from cheating to setting low goals which are easily achieved. In Making the Grade, Martin Covington extracts powerful educational implications from self-worth theory and other contemporary views of motivation that will be useful for everyone concerned with the educational dilemmas we face. He provides a comprehensive, insightful review of research and theory, both contemporary and historical, on the topic of achievement motivation, and arranges this knowledge in ways that lead to imminently practical recommendations for restructuring schools

Life beyond grades : designing college courses to promote intrinsic motivation by Martin V Covington( Book )
7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
"This book raises the question of whether or not educators can promote intrinsic motivation among college students when they seem overwhelmingly focused on grades. Indeed, can there be life beyond grades? The answer is 'Yes'. A love of learning can coexist, even thrive, in the face of competing pressures from grades. Drawing on recent, ground-breaking classroom research, the authors articulate a new understanding of the causes of the stalemate between intrinsic and external motivation, so that a reconciliation between them can be achieved. Then the authors apply a powerful set of motivational and pedagogical principles to lay out a step-by-step blueprint for designing and teaching college courses that promote intrinsic motivation as a primary educational goal in its own right, above and beyond knowledge and skill acquisition. This practical blueprint draws on authentic case study examples from a variety of subject-matter disciplines. Provides a nuanced understanding of the psychological dynamics at the root of excessive grade focus; Features a step-by-step blueprint for designing courses that promote intrinsic motivation; The book will provide guidance for teachers and for those who wish to understand how to motivate students" -- From the publisher

Per quali motivi alcuni studenti si sentono motivati a conseguire buoni risultati mentre altri mostrano disinteresse? Gli autori propongono una metodologia suggestiva - la cosiddetta strategia degli incentivi equi - per ribaltare le strutture motivazionali negative. Questo metodo definisce le condizioni per una equità motivazionale, in cui gli incentivi siano costruttivi, mirati all'apprendimento, alla curiosità intellettuale e riducano al minimo l'aspetto competitivo del sistema di votazione
