Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT: The positive relationship between motivation and excellence with 308 high school students in Northwest Florida was investigated in this study. The research design consisted of the administration of 3 instruments, providing numerical descriptions of how 4 higher order independent variables (goal motivation, acknowledgement motivation, association motivation, and parent-inspired motivation) and 2 higher order dependent variables (analytical excellence and interaction excellence) were related. Student responses to the Inventory of School Motivation, the Parental Attachment Questionnaire, and the Multiple Intelligences Developmental Assessment Scales provided quantitative data. Factor analytic, MANOVA, and step-wise regression statistics revealed both theory- and data-based positive relationships among higher order motivational and excellence variables.
