Applying Theories of Motivation to Situations:Self-Determination Theory/Cognitive Evaluation Theory

Self-Determination Theory/Cognitive Evaluation Theory

Over the decades, numerous theories of motivation have been developed. Most of the older theories have been shown to not be particularly valid and, therefore, not good predictors of motivational force. More contemporary theories can explain the motivational force in particular situations well. Therefore, industrial/organizational (I/O) psychologists must understand which theory best predicts/clarifies human motivation based on the particulars of the situation.

For this assignment, the following contemporary theories are considered:

Self-Determination Theory/Cognitive Evaluation Theory Goal-Setting Theory Self-Efficacy Theory Reinforcement Theory Equity Theory/Organizational Justice Theory Expectancy Theory

Using the Argosy University online library resources, the readings for this module, and the Internet, review these contemporary theories of motivation. Then, correctly apply the appropriate theory to the following two scenarios:

A professional working for a….
