Responding to rewards and sanctions: the impact on students’ sense of belonging and school affect
Mansfield, C. (2007) Responding to rewards and sanctions: the impact on students’ sense of belonging and school affect. In: Annual meeting of the Australian Association for Research in Education, 25 - 29 November, Fremantle
This qualitative study examines the impact of students’ interpretations and responses to rewards and sanctions on sense of belonging and school affect. During a whole school year, six Year 7 students participated in nine semi-structured in-depth interviews about their motivation, including how they interpreted and responded to a school based system of rewards and sanctions. The findings highlight the importance of individual interpretations of experiences on sense of belonging and school affect, and illustrate the inter relationship between these variables. Implications for further research and classroom practice are addressed.
