When I was given the assignment to identify the causes of decreased student motivation I said to myself Screw this I think Ill just go party with my friends and worry about school later Then I realized I was a perfect example of a student who lacked motivation I got to thinking that maybe I could relate to this topic in a very personal way A few of the causes of the decrease in student motivation are related to delayed gratification for work done course work often not applying to the students field of interest and students busy schedules The first cause I am going to discuss is delayed gratification In some classes the students progress can be unclear and as result students dont get immediate feedback to motivate them Assignments and papers are not always collected or graded Professors simply look at assignments to see of it is done or not They often dont know how much or how little work went into the preparation of an assignment All college classes are not worth credit toward a students degree The students in these classes are less likely to feel satisfaction upon the courses completion In some cases the student must take one to three introductory classes before he or she receives college credit Another factor that contributes to the decrease in student motivation is that the required course work doesnt always seem to apply to the students field of interest Students are not always willing to put time into studying or working on assignments if the work is not relevant to them Students find that it makes more sense to learn about subjects that directly pertain to their future jobs Students are more motivated when they are learning practical information that they can put to use Busy schedules also hinder student motivation Often students are involved in too many activities which takes time away from their studies Some students are working
