Motivational Regulations among At-Risk Students in an after School Activity Program.

  title={Motivational Regulations among At-Risk Students in an after School Activity Program.},
  author={R. McBride},
This study examines motivational self-regulations (SR) among at-risk elementary school students participating in the physical activity component of an after school program (ASP) in a rural Southwest U.S. school district. Motivational regulations examined gender differences and were used to predict student performance on an endurance task. One hundred seventy-one participants from the 3rd to 6th grade completed the Self-Regulation Questionnaire and engaged in an endurance run. Repeated measures…

Fourth Graders' Motivation in an Elementary Physical Education Running Program
In this study we examined students' motivation in an elementary physical education running program using achievement goal theory and an expectancy-value model of achievement choice as theoretical
Using Achievement Goal Theory to assess an elementary physical education running program.
The mastery goal related positively to student persistence/effort for Roadrunners and to their one-mile run performance, and interaction between the mastery goal and perception of a mastery-focused climate emerged as a positive predictor of student one- mile run performance.
Effects of Teacher Autonomy Support and Students' Autonomous Motivation on Learning in Physical Education
Investigating the effects of students' autonomous motivation and their perceptions of teacher autonomy support on need satisfaction adjustment, learning achievement, and cardiorespiratory fitness over a 4-month personal conditioning unit suggests that shifts in teaching approaches toward providing more support for students' autonomy and active involvement hold promise for enhancing learning.
Can instructional and emotional support in the first-grade classroom make a difference for children at risk of school failure?
Analysis of ways in which children's risk of school failure may be moderated by support from teachers found at-risk students placed in first-grade classrooms offering strong instructional and emotional support had achievement scores and student-teacher relationships commensurate with their low-risk peers.
Out-of-School-Time Programs: A Meta-Analysis of Effects for At-Risk Students
Schools and districts are adopting out-of-school-time (OST) programs such as after-school programs and summer schools to supplement the education of low-achieving students. However, research has
Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivational Orientations in the Classroom: Age Differences and Academic Correlates
Age differences in intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and the relationships of each to academic outcomes were examined in an ethnically diverse sample of 797 3rd-grade through 8th-grade children.
A Meta-Analysis of After-School Programs That Seek to Promote Personal and Social Skills in Children and Adolescents
A meta-analysis of after-school programs that seek to enhance the personal and social skills of children and adolescents indicated that, compared to controls, participants demonstrated significant
Physical activity levels among children attending after-school programs.
After-school programs seem to be an important contributor to the physical activity levels of attending children, and ample room for improvement exists by making better use of existing time devoted to physical activity.
Research on self-determination in physical education: key findings and proposals for future research
Background: During the last 30 years, several theories of motivation have generated insights into the motives underlying learners' behavior in physical education. Self-determination theory (SDT), a
Investigating Self-Regulation and Motivation: Historical Background, Methodological Developments, and Future Prospects
The topic of how students become self-regulated as learners has attracted researchers for decades. Initial attempts to measure self-regulated learning (SRL) using questionnaires and interviews were
