Due 3/21/2014 Information for the Project Over the past decade, research studies on motivation have provided insights into the roles of extrinsic and intrinsic factors as motivators. One of the more interesting results reported in these studies is that humans can be significantly more driven to perform at a higher level by non-incentivized rewards, suggesting that higher performance can be expected for subjects who are intrinsically motivated. In the Project, one will be expected to locate, summarize, compare, and contrast the results from three primary research articles which examine the differential effects of internal and external motivation. All three articles should have been published after 2000. Example keywords for your literature search are: motivation, internal or intrinsic motivation, external or extrinsic motivation, reward, and human. All content for this assignment should be written in your own words. Direct quotes are strongly discouraged unless you use them specifically to introduce an idea that you plan to explain in more detail in your own words. The length should be approximately 500 words. Evaluation Criteria Answers are evaluated based on the following: • Explain why you think this article is appropriate for the Project. • Discuss how its approach (study parameters) addresses intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. • Discuss conclusions in the paper that make it relevant to the Project. • Majority of content is written in your own words. • Provide full APA citation. Use in-text and end-of-text citations
