Abstract:

Cognitive Evaluation Theory was developed to explain the detrimental effects of extrinsic rewards on intrinsic motivation, a phenomenon contrary to Reinforcement Theory prediction. However, it was suggested that if a person's intrinsic or extrinsic motivational orientation was taken into account, Reinforcement Theory might be able to explain this phenomenon. A 2 (extrinsic x intrinsic motivational orientation) by 2 (competence feedback x controlling feedback) was employed to examine the effect of motivational orientation on intrinsic motivation. Use of the Jonckheere Test of Order suggested that the detrimental effect of extrinsic rewards on intrinsic motivation might be explained within the reinforcement paradigm.
