Underserved Adolescent Girls’ Physical Activity Intentions and Behaviors: Relationships with the Motivational Climate and Perceived Competence in Physical Education  [PDF]
Alex C. Garn, Nate McCaughtry, Bo Shen, Jeffrey Martin, Mariane Fahlman
Advances in Physical Education (APE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ape.2013.32018

This study investigated underserved adolescent girls’ perceptions of the motivational climate in relationship to their perceptions of competence in urban physical education, self-reported physical activity, and future physical activity intentions. A total of two-hundred-seventy-six underserved (i.e., minority, urban, high poverty) adolescent girls completed questionnaires and a multi-step approach was used to test these relationships. First, a trichotomous model of the perceived motivational climate was tested using confirmatory factor analysis and results suggested a good fit of the data. Structural equation modeling analyses were then used to test both direct and indirect relationships between the perceived motivational climates in physical education, perceived competence in physical education, and physical activity outcomes. Findings revealed that the relationship between the perceived motivational climates and physical activity outcomes were best understood when perceived competence in physical education was accounted for as an intermediary factor.

American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.47047

The area of information technology (IT) has undergone constant changes that, consequently, impact directly on professional and in companies that work with this sector. The aim of this study was to identify the motivational profile and the slope on the professional career of the student. This is a field which is applied in questionnaires closed with students. The sample was composed 94 students of two universities of computer in Brazil. Two instruments used were the inventory of Schwartz values (IVS) that offer some perspectives of appreciation of employee matching your goals and interests, and the other instruments were the questionnaire by Edgar Schein on professional inclination, which allows you to identify the relationship and prospects of those with work and their lives. The results reveal that students and IT professionals surveyed here are self-determined individuals who value the lifestyle, benevolent and hedonists, seeking the welfare and satisfaction in work and love challenges. Then we conclude that professionals and IT students are or will be, mostly professionals looking for constant challenges and personal and professional satisfaction, adapting the work as best as possible to your lifestyle.

Different Motivations of Chinese Students Learning Japanese and English in Japan  [PDF]
Yunlong Liu, Lezhou Su
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2016.61003
Abstract: As literacy in English and Japanese is usually a part of requirements for international students applying for Japanese universities, Chinese students in Japan, like other international students whose first language is neither English nor Japanese, have to engage in learning the two foreign languages simultaneously. The focus of this research is on the learning motivations of this Chinese student population. It attempts to judge whether differences exist in terms of motivations between their English and Japanese learning; and if so, what differences are there? It also aims to investigate what variables might influence their self-regulation of Japanese and English respectively. A survey of 46 subjects was conducted using a questionnaire with questions related to ideal L2 self, international orientation, self-efficacy beliefs, instrumentality, intrinsic motivation, motivated behavior, language learning anxiety, self-regulation, learning experience, peer pressure, parent encouragement and the role of teachers. The results of Independent Sample t-Test seem to suggest that there are distinctive differences between English learning and Japanese learning in terms of motivation. Regression analysis seems to indicate that Chinese students’ self-regulation in Japanese learning differs to some extent from that in English learning in the sense that they tend to be affected by different sets of variables.

Abstract: Irrespective of their size, all the companies in Romania face deficiencies in the motivation of the staff, situation leading to the employees dissatisfactions in work, their instability, the lack of interest of employees in the performance of the organization.An effective motivational system is the one bringing satisfaction in work to the staff. The satisfaction in work is the state of balance that the individual reaches when he/she answers completely some aware or unaware needs or expectations. The new vision in the field of human resources is that managers should have in their suborder self-motivated working teams, who, with a little supervision, can put into effect the goals established. In this case, the managers have only the supporting role, granting consultancy to the members of the team and providing the interface of the team wit the exterior. As for the rest, the team members do it all, from the establishment of the objectives to accomplish to their achievement. The concept of motivation approaches aspects that make people work better and more; that they should be perseverant and to go over obstacles; that they should be committed to work and enthusiastic with respect to the activity they carry out. A component of the managerial role is that of providing people with motivations, making them be committed to their work, but the success will be unlikely if we do not fully understand what people want from their job.

Derry-Lee Lawrence,Conrad Schmidt
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v33i3.389
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine the usefulness of Motivational Styles Questionnaire (MSQ) from a critical reflective perspective. The MSQ was administered to a random sample of managerial and consulting employees within the banking and information technology sector (N = 221). In order to examine the underlying factor structure and the corresponding reliabilities, a principal factor analysis was conducted, which yielded promising results. The findings of the critical analysis further revealed a number of gaps in the recommendations regarding the use of this instrument.
Delivering Quality Motivational Interviewing Training: A Survey of MI Trainers
Michael B. Madson,Claire Lane,Jeremy J. Noble
Motivational Interviewing : Training, Research, Implementation, Practice , 2012, DOI: 10.5195/mitrip.2012.8
Abstract: The MI community places an emphasis on attempting to understand the training process. Yet little is known about what MI trainers perceive as the important variables in training MI. A mixed method survey of 92 members of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers was used to elicit important variables to consider in providing quality MI training. Based on results, it appears that MI trainers are familiar with Miller and Moyers’ (2006) eight stages of learning MI and used them to develop trainings. However, the respondents reported that they do not use these stages to evaluate trainings. Moreover, the respondents emphasized the importance of trainee and trainer variables in organizing trainings. They also provided varied opinions regarding the important ingredients in developing MI competency. The authors discuss the need for further empirical exploration of the important training ingredients and the eight stages model. Finally, the need for exploration of how these ingredients help trainees develop competency and future focus on the integration of best practices in adult learning is discussed.

Motivational Interviewing : Training, Research, Implementation, Practice , 2012, DOI: 10.5195/mitrip.2012.20
Abstract: We wrote this piece for coding teams around the world, hoping to raise some measurement issues, to inspire, and to entertain (perhaps not in that order). This one’s for you, coders and for you, trainers of coders, you who work so hard to measure Motivational Interviewing using the standardized coding systems such as the MISC, MITI, and SCOPE.
