MTTC Physical Education: Individual & Group Motivation Chapter Objectives
The MTTC Physical Education test seeks to determine your understanding of various aspects of physical education, including fitness, health, lifelong physical activities, development, assessment, motivation, and reflection. The topics covered in this chapter can be found within the management, motivation, and communication subarea of the exam, which makes up of 14% of the test questions.
Available in both paper- and computer-based formats, this exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. Prepare for this test with the engaging videos in this lesson, and then use the corresponding multiple-choice quizzes to not only test your knowledge but to also practice answering questions formatted similar to those you'll see on the actual MTTC Physical Education exam.
1. Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation in Education: Definition & Examples
Intrinsic and extrinsic are the two types of motivation. Learn more about intrinsic and extrinsic motivation from definitions and examples, then test your knowledge with a quiz.
2. Using Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivation to Enhance Learning
Why do you want to learn about educational psychology? Do you enjoy reading about different theories and practices? Do you have to pass this class in order to receive a degree? Our behaviors are driven by intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. In this lesson, distinguish between these types of motivation and learn how they can enhance learning.
3. The Importance of Motivation in an Educational Environment
In this lesson, you'll see how motivation affects learning. Discover the behaviors and perspectives that relate to motivation in an educational environment.
4. Goal Orientation Theory: How Goals Affect Student Motivation & Behavior
What academic goals do you set for yourself? Are you driven by interest in the academic discipline or by extrinsic factors, such as receiving a higher salary because you have a degree? You may be driven by both. This lesson will explore goals and how they affect student motivation and behavior.
5. Self-Determination Theory: Capacity, Strategy & Control Beliefs
How do you stay motivated? What motivates your peers and coworkers? Are rewards motivating factors or do people have an internal drive to persist until a given activity is completed? This lesson will describe a theory that encompasses both intrinsic and extrinsic motivators: the self-determination theory.
6. The Role of Motivation in Self-Regulated Learning
Do you monitor and evaluate your own learning? Do you alter the way you study based on performance on assessments? If so, you are engaging in self-regulation practices and, by doing so, increasing the likelihood of academic achievement. This lesson will define self-regulation, discuss the cyclical process of self-regulation and explore methods to promote self-regulation in the classroom.
