The purpose of my action research project is to find out how to motivate students who have repeatedly failed progress reports and report cards. How do we currently motivate these students? Is it working? How can we motivate them to succeed? Is intrinsic or extrinsic motivation more effective? Does parent involvement make a difference? Are there any interventions before and after students fail progress reports?
My action research project will benefit all stakeholders at my school. We currently have issues with students repeatedly failing progress reports and report cards. The findings of this inquiry will provide administrators with knowledge about what we are and can do to help the students. Teachers will learn strategies and ideas to implement to motivate these students to succeed. Students will benefit by becoming motivated to pass their classes.
