Abstract Although the effects of choice provision on intrinsic motivation have been intensively studied, the number of experimental studies, in particular with elementary school children, is limited. Moreover, many questions regarding the boundary conditions of the effects of choice remain unresolved. Grounded in self-determination theory, the current experimental field study examined the effect of choice provision, versus choice deprivation, on the intrinsic motivation of elementary school chil...

The present research examined the role of university students’ motivation for spending time alone in their adjustment to college life, as well as the parenting correlates of students’ healthy motivation for solitude. Two studies were conducted on first-year college students in the United States (n = 147) and Canada (n = 223). In Study 1, data was collected at three different time points, separated by two-week intervals. In Study 2, data was collected at two different time points, separated by a ...

Abstract Although plenty of studies have shown that a controlling, relative to an autonomy-supportive, motivating style yields a host of undesirable outcomes, at least some sport coaches endorse the belief that in some situations (e.g., when athletes misbehave) or with some athletes (e.g., those who are amotivated) a controlling approach is warranted and even beneficial. On the basis of Self-Determination Theory (Deci & Ryan, 1985; Ryan & Deci, 2017), the current study examined to what extent th...
