In modern expectancy--value theory (EVT) in educational psychology, expectancy and value beliefs additively predict performance, persistence, and task choice. In contrast to earlier formulations of EVT, the multiplicative term Expectancy × Value in regression-type models typically plays no major role in educational psychology. The present study used latent moderated structural equation modeling to explore whether there is empirical support for a multiplicative effect in a sample of 2,508…

Expectancy-Value Theory of Achievement Motivation.

The expectancy-value theory of motivation is discussed, focusing on an expectancy- value model developed and researched by Eccles, Wigfield, and their colleagues, and its components are compared to those of related constructs, including self-efficacy, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and interest.

In 2 studies, an expectancy-value framework was applied to investigate effort expended on mathematics homework; the means for effort and value were lower for homework than for classwork; these differences were partly moderated by students' conscientiousness.
