Comments[edit]

The outline of your chapter looks like it will flow well once in progression. I like the timeline picture - but maybe you could make it a bit bigger because I can't really read the theoriests' names. Good job AngeM 07:22, 23 October 2011 (UTC)--

Thanks for the comments - I've only just starting playing around with placement of pictures, agree that particular picture does need to be bigger and in a different spot. Thanks again--Wikitwit 08:38, 23 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi Wikitwit, Your outline has piqued my interest. I look forward to reading more + understanding what motivates me to achieve.Crazydaisy 22:59, 24 October 2011 (UTC)Crazydaisy

Hey there - I agree, the timeline is a great idea. I think the way that you progress from the theory and then incorporate it into how to foster achievement is good. The quote is well-fitting also :) (Psych 125 03:30, 1 November 2011 (UTC))

Hi, this is page looks really good and it's very interesting to read about. Many of the articles I have read are similar to what you are saying. I was wondering if I could put your page under my external links as my page is on competitive motivation and they are quite similar. All the bestRednoodles 02:59, 3 November 2011 (UTC)

Wiktionary[edit]

FYI, it looks like the Wiktionary definition got deleted on the basis that it was not a dictionary term, so I've changed that template to link instead to the Wikipedia article. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 12:13, 27 October 2011 (UTC) Really well researched and laid out - I liked the quiz - Magnolia28

It's looking great WikiTwit! From what I'm seeing you are certainly covering all bases. The intro is interesting and defines what you are talking about well. The theory discussion is very comprehensive, and yet it is still interesting and relevant. The examples of how to 'foster achievement motivation' are really great. They cover a good range of applications and I particularly like the way you've clearly emphasised the important 'take home' parts of each. A lot to be learned in this topic! Great work!

Overall[edit]

  1. Overall comments
    1. This is a well presented chapter on achievement motivation that demonstrates key theoretical concepts, thorough research, and engagement with the self-help task and wiki format.

Theory[edit]

  1. Theory comments
    1. The major theories applicable to achievement motivation are covered, demonstrating a wide coverage and in-depth understanding of the course content; the need for achievement is well situated in McLelland’s social needs, the contemporary and classical views of achievement (and how they combine to form an integrated view) are discussed, parallels are drawn with self-determination theory, and a distinction is made between entity and incremental theorists with implications for achievement.

Research[edit]

  1. Research comments
    1. The integration of research with theory is particularly well done. The research discussed is described very well, provides critical analysis/limitations and includes recent studies.
    2. It is great to see the TAT applied to the topic as an assessment tool for achievement motivation in the context of social needs.
    3. Examples of Skinner and Jordan effectively illustrate achievement motivation.
    4. Inclusion of meta-analytic findings provides strong support for the argument and would be strengthened even further with a statement of the effect size.
    5. Table 2 provides very effective self-help advice in multiple domains.

Written expression[edit]

  1. Written expression comments
    1. Quotes are used to great effect in almost every section of the chapter . The quote by Ayn Rand, promoting mastery motivation over performance motivation, is particularly well-placed in the text and illustrative of the key ideas.
    2. Focus questions are used to set up the topic.
    3. Additional wiki features have been incorporated expertly throughout the chapter (e.g., tables, figures with captions, boxes to highlight quotes, and a learning quiz).
    4. APA style is generally expertly handled; however, remember to use double quotation marks for direct quotes in text and try to avoid contractions.
    5. The summary ties in beautifully with the introduction and provides a great self-help focus.

Overall[edit]

  1. Overall, this is a basic narrated audio with accommpanying text and image.

Structure and content[edit]

  1. Use the general introduction to establish self-help focus questions and/or provide an overview of what content will be covered
  2. It was surprising the nAch from McClelland's point of view wasn't discussed
  3. No summary or take-home messages?

Communication[edit]

  1. Including example character Bob helped to attract and maintain interest
  2. Voice-over was well paced
  3. Test your knowledege was a promising idea, but it went too fast

Production quality[edit]

  1. Audio was clearly recorded
  2. Text and image was mostly easy to read, but there was a tendency towards being overly small
  3. Use full-screen presentation mode when recording (to get rid of border) - this will also make the text and image larger
  4. Image attribution?
  5. Provide link to chapter
  6. Consider releasing the presentation under a Creative Commons Attribution license

I have provided a summary page (that included the take home message) and I did talk about this in the presentation. --Wikitwit 05:16, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. You're right, there is a summary page/section. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:49, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

I have provided hyperlinks for the images used. --Wikitwit 05:16, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. You're right, there is a page that is (briefly) shown with the links to the images at 4:59. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:49, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

I thought that I had agreed to release this under the 3.0 license, and have provided the details on one of the last pages of the presentation. Is there something else that I needed to do with this? --Wikitwit 05:16, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. You're right, the final page (5:00) indicates Creative Commons release. Well done. This can also be provided in the file description and/or comments field. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:49, 12 December 2011 (UTC)

Did you mean that I needed to provide a link to the chapter, or are you saying that I provided one? There is a link to the chapter provided. --Wikitwit 05:23, 11 December 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. You're right, the final page (5:00) provides a link back the chapter. Well done. This can also be provided in the file description and/or comments field. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 01:49, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
