Mission statement


The mission of the Motivation and Emotion SIG is to promote research and theory on the person and situation influences on the direction, intensity, quality and persistence of human behavior related to learning and instruction in education.  This also involves a more applied research approach to understanding the conditions under which motivational and emotional constructs predict achievement behavior, exploring persistence in the face of obstacles and competing demands, and testing the effectiveness of education-related strategies and interventions for motivation and achievement outcomes.
