This study examined how learning processes unfold and vary when rewards are provided or not provided to groups on a competitive basis in hopes of informing the improvement of incentive systems in collaborative settings. It employed the idea of coopetition by integrating rewarded and unrewarded competition with collaboration to form two coopetition designs: social-comparison coopetition (unrewarded competition) and zero-sum coopetition (rewarded competition). Interrelationships among self-efficacy, social support, self-regulated learning, motivation for achievement, and critical thinking, which hold significance for collaborative learning and education, were used to model learning processes with PLS-SEM. Sixty-three university students joined the study. Data sources included survey data and students' academic scores. The findings indicated that social-comparison coopetition (unrewarded competition) demonstrated advantages over zero-sum coopetition (rewarded competition) in facilitating students' collaboration. Self-efficacy exerted distinct influences over self-regulated learning in the two coopetition designs. It significantly predicted student's motivation for achievement in social-comparison coopetition while not in zero-sum coopetition. Motivation for achievement significantly predicted the development of critical thinking in social-comparison coopetition but not in zero-sum coopetition. Surprisingly, social support did not contribute significantly to self-regulated learning in either coopetition design. This paper concludes with implications for refining incentive systems in collaborative learning settings. Unrewarded competition surpasses rewarded competition in collaborative settings.Self-efficacy predicts motivation for achievement in SC but not in ZS.Motivation for achievement predicts critical thinking in SC while not in ZS.Self-efficacy predicts self-regulation differently in the two coopetition designs.Social support does not predict self-regulation in the two coopetition designs.

The purpose of the present study is to investigate the relationship between perceived social support and psychological well-being among students based on mediating role of academic motivation. Participants were 371 female high school students from second and third-grade students who were randomly selected by applying a multi-stage cluster sampling technique in Tehran, Iran. To examine the research variables, Psychological Well-being Questionnaire of Ryff (1989). Social Support Appraisals Scale o...

Abstract This paper provides a theoretical overview and empirical demonstration of Partial Least Squares Path Modeling (PLS) comparing it to Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). The two data analysis techniques share historical origins but differ in terms of underlying algorithms, which gives rise to other key differences: (a) the treatment of unexplained indicator variance; (b) the specification of formative constructs; (c) the availability of model fit estimates; and (d) sample size requirement...

Abstract In this study we analyzed if teacher support and student self-efficacy mediated the relations between students’ grades in mathematics and different measures of mathematics motivation. Participants in the study were 823 Norwegian middle school students. Indicators of motivation were intrinsic motivation, effort, persistence, and help-seeking behavior. Data were analyzed by means of multiple regression and SEM analysis. The relations between students’ grades and motivation were partly med...

Abstract Developing self-regulated learning (SRL) among students is critically important to enable success in and beyond school. This case study highlights the practices of an experienced Grade 7 teacher, Janet (pseudonym), who supported students’ SRL through social interactions. This exemplary case was drawn through a screening procedure with data collected via an in-depth interview, informal conversations, and classroom observations. The study presents the teacher's perspective and ways of wor...

This article examines cognitive, affective, and behavioral measures of motivation and reviews their use throughout the discipline of experimental social psychology. We distinguish between two dimensions of motivation (outcome-focused motivation and process-focused motivation). We discuss circumstances under which measures may help distinguish between different dimensions of motivation, as well as circumstances under which measures may capture different dimensions of motivation in similar ways. F...

This study investigated the effects of external rewards on fifth graders’ motivation, engagement and learning while playing an educational game. We were interested in exploring whether the feedback-rich environment of the game could mitigate the predicted negative effects of external rewards. Data of students’ engagement and learning were collected and analyzed at multiple levels. A quasi-experimental design was used to examine the effect of external rewards in one group (n ¼ 50) compared to a c...

Research on coopetition has been conducted for more than two decades. However, several concepts remain that require elaboration. A study on the literature shows that there is a lack of unified definitions, as various definitions have been employed in previous accomplished research. In this article we suggest that the early definition of coopetition, as a dual relationship between firms that simultaneously cooperate and compete needs to be refined. Our new definition suggests that coopetition is ...

Abstract The main purpose of the present paper is to analyze the feasibility of managing coopetition among two given agents in a firm, under a Markovian structure, where the transition probabilities are defined by the incentive schemes for cooperation and competition and the personality-tradeoffs between the two agents. Furthermore, the asymptotic behavior of the model is considered and analyzed through a numerical estimation of the different possibilities. The behavior of the steady state proba...

Abstract Social robots are designed to interact, collaborate, and work with people, engaging them at an interpersonal and socio-affective level. The goal directed model was used to study the role of socio-cognitive, affective (anticipated emotions), and motivational (behavioral desire) factors of the intention to work with social robots in the near future. The effects of robots' perceived warmth and competence on components of the goal directed model are explored as well as the effects of social...

Abstract Collaborative learning is a promising avenue in education research. Learning from others and with others can foster deeper learning at a multiple-choice assignment, but it is hard to control the level of students' pure guessing. This paper addresses the problem of promoting collaborative learning through regulation of guessing when students use clickers to answer multiple-choice questions of various levels of difficulty. The study is aimed at identifying how the difficulty of the task a...
