Feedback from Louise[edit source]

The body of your chapter is looking good. I have mentioned goal setting theory briefly in my chapter and I have included a link to your chapter because you have covered it in a lot more detail. It is interesting that you have also made reference to self-determination theory and feedback which I also refer to in my chapter. My chapter is Adolescent educational motivation. Also, just a reminder to make sure your reference list is in APA style before the due date, as at the moment the references are not in alphabetical order. --Louise Wheeler (discusscontribs) 01:13, 18 October 2018 (UTC)

Suggestions[edit source]

Hi I have come across the following which may be of interest for you in relation to motivation and goal setting/attainment in relation to task difficulty. My topic is Motivational Intensity Theory.'t_know --GillianN74 (discusscontribs) 02:47, 27 August 2018 (UTC)

Hi, this sounds like a super interesting topic, I look forward to reading the finished chapter! I found this article which may be helpful in your research - Relationship of core self-evaluations to goal setting, motivation, and performance. You can use this link to auto download a copy of the PDF, hopefully it works (if not try searching for the article on Google Scholar). I hope this helps! --Brittany (u3117719) (discusscontribs) 10:09, 1 September 2018 (UTC)

Hey! This study might also be interesting for you. It is a new development of making goals SMARTER rather than just "SMART", as it makes the goals even more worth reaching If the link doesn't work, the article is called Making SMART goals smarter U3158984 (discusscontribs)

Hey! This TED talk may also help your study out Good luck! --U3158984 (discusscontribs) 08:36, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==
