On the interplay between skill and will (completed)

– A longitudinal study of the developmental and situational dynamics in learning and motivation (DELEMO).

About the Project

The commonly observed decline in adolescents' motivation is often explained in terms of diminished interests or lower competence perceptions. However, what we know less of is how and why students end up with their different interests and competence perceptions, how these different motivational forces interact as such and with skills and achievement in the course of development, and how those developmental trajectories influence more specific task engagement. The present DELEMO- project attempts to fill these gaps.


This project is funded by the Academy of Finland (2014-2018)
