Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2020/Basic psychological need theory
Hi there, unfortunately the links you have included throughout the text do not go anywhere. I would recommend ammending or removing the links. Hope this is useful.
Image suggestion[edit source]
I am doing the 'autonomy support and motivation' chapter and I have included an image that might be relevant to your chapter. It shows the types of motivation on a continuum of autonomy, and seems to have been added to the commons by another student. The file name is: File:Taxonomy motivation.png
Hope this helps!
Further image/case study suggestion[edit source]
Your chapter on basic psychological need theory is very interesting, and well thought out. However, to make it possibly a little bit more captivating, I suggest adding more relevant images, or case study bubbles to highlight important notes in your research. Hope this helps --U3190522 (discuss • contribs) 07:40, 18 October 2020 (UTC)U3190522
Suggesting the use of an overview[edit source]
For this part below you should put into a section called overview before basic psychological theory as this will give more flow. Basic psychological need theory explain the psychological need of people.
In self-determination theory, basic psychological needs serve as the basis for personality growth and integration, well-being, and positive social development. The theory identifies three specific needs, which are considered universal and applicable throughout the lifespan.
Maslow need theory also mentions the psychological need. In Maslow theory,

Key points[edit source]
@U3182677: I've had a quick look through the draft. Some suggestions:
- Word count is ~4800, so will need to be reduced. The most obvious aspect to reduce is the general background about SDT since this is covered by other chapters and Wikipedia pages which can be linked to. In addition, the experiment section can be removed since it is about intrinsic/extrinsic motivation and rewards rather than BPNT. In effect, in terms of addressing the topic, the chapter doesn't really start until the "Basic criteria for the Basic Psychological Needs Theory (BPNT)" section. Basically, there is much general background theory and little about BPNT.
- Overview - consider adding focus questions.
- Use wiki links for the first mention of key words/concepts to other related book chapters and/or Wikipedia pages.
- Use Australian spelling (e.g., recognizes -> recognises).
- In addition to need satisfaction perhaps also consider need frustration.
- use ampersand rather than "and" when citations are within parentheses
- extra comma needed e.g., (Li, Wang & Kee, 2013) -> (Li, Wang, & Kee, 2013)
- A Conclusion section is missing. What are the practical, take-home messages that can help to improve everyday life?
- Avoid having sections with only one subsection.
- See also and external links need tidying up - remove the template links and replace with more relevant links.
- Use APA style 7th edition style e.g.,
- remove "Retrieved from" (no longer part of APA 7th ed.)
- Include full URL for dois
- Check and correct capitalisation and italicisation
- Use APA style 7th edition style e.g.,
- This may be of interest: Reeve, J., & Lee, W. (2019). A neuroscientific perspective on basic psychological needs. Journal of Personality, 87(1), 102-114.
@U3182677: Some additional feedback:
- The title and sub-title appear to have been removed
- Theory - since BPNT is a sub-theory of SDT (this could be made more clear), it isn't really necessary to present Maslow's hierarchy of needs or consistency theory, especially if they are not mentioned or used subsequently in the chapter. Instead, consider providing a more indepth overview of BPNT in the context of SDT.
- A lot of links to non-existing Wikiversity pages have been added. Perhaps these are intended to be Wikipedia links. See Tutorial 2 for how to add links to Wikipedia pages. Also in this tutorial, check out how to use bullet-points (e.g., for the key points in the Overview).
- External links - remove the generic links from the template material
- Remove the rogue wiki reference showing at the very end
- Frustration is now well embedded into the chapter. However, the frustration section towards the end seems a little out of place. Is it needed? Could it be integrated earlier? The dual-process model hasn't been mentioned to that point, so it seems odd to bring it up so late in the chapter. The content is also quite dense. Consider providing a simple, practical example, say of need satisfaction vs. need frustration.
- References - APA 7th ed. style - include issue number and dois, check and correct capitalisation etc.
