Theories of motivation and assessment of ICT – some questions

One of the books that I have cherished in this process is Tombari and Borich’s on Authentic Assessment in the Classroom (1999). I have returned to it to analyse their categorisation of theories of motivation and used this to generate some questions that may be useful in data collection.

Attribution theory

How do students perceive success in ICT tasks and what do they attribute that success to?

Self-efficacy theory

How do students see their ICT capability and where does that view comes from?

Goal theory

What assumptions, if any, does ICT assessment make of students goal-theory characteristics and how do students themselves view their capacity to succeed?
