“Indicator’s of a High Level of Motivation” She/he takes the initiative to undertake learning tasks, assignments and projects without being pushed by his/her teachers and parents. She/he has goals to accomplish and dreams to realize. She/he is convinced that accomplishing the things she/he asked is to accomplish in class helps her/him realize the goals she/he has set for herself/himself and their dream in life.
Indicator’s of a High Level of Motivation”She/he willing to give up the satisfaction of immediate goals for the sake of more important remote goals. An example is she/he is willing to give up joining her/his barkada to watch a movie in order to prepare thoroughly for final examinations.She/he persists and perseveres in her/his studies even when things turn out to be difficult.She/he does not give up easily.

“Types of Motivation”• Intrinsic Motivation – the source of motivation is from within the person herself/himself or the activity itself.• Example: A student reads pocketbooks because it is enjoyable.
• Extrinsic Motivation – the source of motivation is something outside herself/himself or the rewards and incentives.• Example: A student studies because she/he was told by her/his teacher or because she/he is afraid to fail and her/his parents makes her/him stop schooling.
“Type of Motivation which is More Beneficial”It is obviously that intrinsic motivation ismore beneficial because it comes fromwithin the person and it is not after theincentives or rewards. It is shown in theenjoyment of the activity itself and theinner conviction of the learner that suchthings are the right things to do in orderto realize a personal goal or a life dream.
“The Role of Extrinsic Motivation”• Extrinsic Motivation factors include:• Rewards• Incentives• Praises or words of encouragements• Approval of significant others like teachers, parents, peer group
