Finding a way to motivate students to complete their work is a problem that has been a topic with plentiful research. The use of reward systems is one way in which educators have tried to motivate their students. The research discusses the impact that reward systems have on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. The impact of the rewards on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation will be examined through the literature review. New programs have emerged trying to impact student motivation. One of these newer programs will be examined (PBIS- Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) through the literature review.
There is limited research on classroom rewards systems from the parent’s perspective. This study uses a mixed methods approach with parent surveys of the classroom reward systems in four elementary school classrooms. This data will be analyzed against the four classroom teacher interviews. This will expand on the limited research analysis of the parent’s viewpoint on their child’s classroom reward system.
