MetadataShow full item record
The present quantitative study examined the relation between self-efficacy before a written feedback intervention, feedback perception, and intrinsic motivation after the feedback intervention. Participants were 46 students of the Faculty of Social Sciences of Utrecht University. Participants received a questionnaire including some hypothetical feedback. One group of students (N = 20) read positive feedback, while the other group of students (N = 26) read negative feedback. In one questionnaire, firstly self-efficacy of participants was measured. After that they read some feedback fragments and answered questions about the perception of that feedback, based on the developmental, encouraging and fair aspects of the feedback. Finally, intrinsic motivation in relation to the assignment on which feedback was given was measured with items based on the Intrinsic Motivation Inventory. Correlation measurements, t-tests and ANOVA‟s showed no relation between the three concepts.
