Hi there,

I'm wondering if you would like a pdf of a Motivation and Emotion Journal article? It is call Motivational clusters and performance in a real-life setting (2009). Short Abstract: The present research investigated whether assessing adolsecent elite athletes' motivational profiles at the beginning of the season would allow us to predict their subsequent performance over the course of a competition season. The article covers motivation, performance, cluster analysis and the self-determination theory.

If so, please let me know you email so I can send it to you (sorry I don't know of another way).

Hi, I was looking at your page, it seems kind of related to mine actually, and noticed that the references were all out of order. Hope you don't mind I just alphabetised them. But I was a bit confused by the Plant reference and the Plante reference, they have the same initials, is this a typo and supposed to be Plant instead of Plante or vice versa?? Hope I've helped EFA 06:22, 31 October 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Looks like you've got a good page going! You've done really well to incorporate theory and make it relevant/explain how it fits with your topic. The 'are you motivated' box is really cool too. Well done! Naomi 11:11, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

  1. Overall comments
    1. This is an engaging chapter with a strong theoretical foundation, which could be strengthened further with closer adherence to APA style.


  1. Theory comments
    1. Theoretical basis for this chapter is quite strong with a great discussion and summary of self-determination theory.


  1. Research comments
    1. Good comparison of goal-perspective approach and SDT with supporting research.
    2. The self-help objective is mainly fulfilled through reflective questions based on the understanding of sport motivations developed through the chapter, with some limited guidance on how to instigate or maintain sporting behaviours.

Written expression[edit]

  1. Written expression comments
    1. Fantastic use of boxes, multimedia links to assessment tools, images and explanatory captions!
    2. Secondary citations generally well done; however, it is usually preferable to source and reference the original article if possible. Also, note that ampersand should be used for authors when in brackets (&) and et al., should have a full stop before the comma.
    3. Check sentence construction “specifically for women who do not participate the risk level is twice as high as those who do not”
    4. The paragraph on SDT is lengthy and could be split up. Also, try to avoid one-sentence paragraphs.
    5. “That is” and “for example” should be expressed in words in the main text.

  1. Overall, this is a simple, but effective multimedia presentation about motivation for sport participation.

Structure and content[edit]

  1. Structure is well organised.
  2. Content is well selected.
  3. Sport participation statistics useful.
  4. More reference could be made to relevant research studies.
  5. How about a summary?


  1. Overall, the content is effectively communicated.
  2. Slides had a good balance of a small amount of text and message.
  3. Audio was reasonably interesting, but did feel at times as though the goal was to get through read-aloud content. (There was more audio content than slide content).
  4. A slightly slow speaking pace could make for a more effective presentation.

Production quality[edit]

  1. Overall, production quality was simple but effective.
  2. Image sources were not acknowledged - copyright may have been violated.
  3. License for presentation?
