Intrinsic vs. Extrinsic Motivation in an Interactive Engineering Game
In this paper, we study intrinsic vs. extrinsic motivation in players playing an electrical engineering gaming environment. We used UNTANGLED, a highly interactive game to conduct this study. This game is developed to solve complex mapping problem from electrical engineering using human intuitions. Our goal is to find whether there are differences in the ways anonymous players solved electrical engineering puzzles in an electronic gaming environment when motivated to play competitively, as compared to self-regulated play. For our experiments, we used puzzles from four games from UNTANGLED. A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was calculated on participants’ scores, type of plays, number of plays, and time spent playing, as both self-regulated and competitive players. We also examined difference between the type of moves used by the competitive and self-regulated players. Our results support the theory of motivation as being internally embedded in learners. The results also demonstrate that a self-regulated learner does not require motivation to improve one’s performance.
Teachers can often readily identify students who demonstrate high or low motivation in a certain task. Motivated students engage in the task with intensity and feeling, whereas unmotivated students procrastinate and indicate in other ways that they would rather do something else. These differences exemplify the quantitative dimension of motivation, ranging from high to low. Teachers can often a...متن کامل
A central tenet of economics is that individuals respond to incentives. For psychologists and sociologists, in contrast, rewards and punishments are often counterproductive, because they undermine “intrinsic motivation”. We reconcile these two views, showing how performance incentives offered by an informed principal (manager, teacher, parent) can adversely impact an agent’s (worker, child) per...متن کامل
Gravamen is a kind of lyrical literature in which human tries own suffering and distress to reveal the audience. There are several types of gravamen. One of them is the mystical breakthrough that comes from the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. Including Intrinsic motivations can be mentioned the sadness of separation from partner, the sadness of separation from partner, sensual temptations, ...متن کامل
Paid crowdsourcing platforms, which harness the extrinsic motivation of monetary compensation, are seeing increased usage for design feedback tasks, but the low quality of design feedback from crowdsourced workers continues to be a problem for designers. Intrinsic motivation has the potential to increase the quality of worker responses, but is difficult to elicit in paid workers. In this paper,...متن کامل
If a person who is intrinsically motivated to perform an activity begins to receive external reinforcement for the activity, what will happen to his intrinsic motivation? Previous studies and the present study indicate that money decreases intrinsic motivation, while verbal reinforcements tend to enhance intrinsic motivation. The beginning of a cognitive evaluation theory is discussed, and an a...متن کامل
This paper evaluates the sources of inventor motivation, their impacts on inventor productivity, and the interaction between intrinsic and extrinsic motivations using novel data from a survey of Japanese inventors on 5,278 patents conducted by Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) in 2007. Our study reveals that two intrinsic motives--satisfaction from contributing to scienc...متن کامل
