Cognitive evaluation theory

  1. 1. COGNITIVE EVALUATION THEORY Jitin Kollamkudy 1
  2. 2. This theory suggests that there are actually two motivation systems: intrinsic and extrinsic that correspond to two kinds of motivators  Intrinsic motivators  Extrinsic 2
  3. 3.  Intrinsic motivators: Achievement, responsibility and competence. Motivators that come from the actual performance of the task or job -the intrinsic interest of the work.  Extrinsic motivators: pay, promotion, feedback, working conditions , controlled by others. 3
  4. 4.  Cognitive Evaluation Theory is designed to explain the effects of external consequences on internal motivation.  CET Theory states that when extrinsic rewards are used by organizations as payoffs for superior performance, the intrinsic rewards which are derived from individuals doing what they like are reduced. 4
  5. 5.  Allocating extrinsic rewards for behavior that had been previously intrinsically rewarded tends to decrease the overall level of motivation. 5
  6. 6.  Intrinsically motivated individuals perform for their own achievement and satisfaction. If they come to believe that they are doing some job because of the pay or the working conditions or some other extrinsic reason, they begin to lose motivation 6
  7. 7. IMPLICATIONS OF COGNITIVE EVALUATION THEORY The implication for CET is that the consequences of a reward will be a decreased level of intrinsic motivation and satisfaction because the reward is perceived to negatively impact the competence of the individual. 7
