Title CONNECTION OF STUDENTs’ training MOTIVATION WITH THEIR ACADEMIC CHARACTERISTICS AND SOCIAL ATTITUDES
Author(-s) Makarova M.N., Korotkikh M.A.
Abstract The authors of this article try to apply the theories of goals-achievement and self-determination for the estimation of the connection of students’ training motivation with their attitudes (individualism - collectivism; attitude to studying in a higher educational institution) and some academic and social characteristics (academic performance, gender, year of study, specialization, etc.) Mastery goal (intention to learn deeply and understand material) often positively correlates with intrinsic motivation and academic performance. Performance goal (orientation to the demonstration of competence, comparison with others) is mostly connected with academic performance and individualistic attitudes. Self-confidence is most closely connected with gender, academic achievement and learning satisfaction. Intrinsic motivation (desire to get knowledge) positively correlates with study satisfaction and desire to have job in students’ degree field. Students who are more oriented to get knowledge at the same time are oriented to work in their degree field and satisfied with their education. Individualism can also influence the high academic motivation and the development of student’s achievement. The development of individualistic attitudes of competition and self-dependence can determine student performance and success rather than collectivistic values. The analysis has shown a connection between educational progress and desire to master knowledge, get high academic results and build carrier independently in competitive environment. We also can see that importance of estimating the results of student’s education can also positively influence his academic performance.
