La motivation des élèves selon la théorie de l'autodétermination

Abstract : Pupils' motivation is a key issue for their academic success. Deci and Ryan's (2002) theory of self-determination outlines the importance of intrinsic motivation, which occurs when the pupil's three basic psychological needs are filled: selfdetermination, competence and social belonging. Some activities seem to be conducive to the development of intrinsic motivation through the satisfaction of these needs. In this research, we therefore ask ourselves the following question: To what extent are the basic psychological needs of the pupil satisfied, so that he/she is intrinsically motivated, when carrying out a workplan? To answer this question, observation (to set the context), surveys and interviews are conducted. The results indicate that all the psychological needs of the pupil are filled during a work plan, with a predominance for the need for self-determination, without this systematically leading to the pupil being intrinsically motivated.
