Abstract [en]

Following study is about motivation from a student perspective. Based on the prescribed literature and published research, the concept and field of motivation have been illuminated. The purpose of the study was to examine how students in ninth grade perceived their educational motivation and what kind importance they considered it had for their performance in school. The study is also supposed to base upon the result; clarify the differences if any between schools. In an attempt to get a clear image of this a quantitative method in the form of surveys was made on two schools in the Stockholm region. One of the schools had a really good merit value, and the other had a rather poor merit- value. By choosing a quantitative method a relatively large number of students where able to participate and equally large quantity of statistics have been presented. The result point at motivation in the participating students in both schools can increase and decrease through different factors. These factors, observed in this study, are directly linked to the school and includes among other things the significant of having an influence on the education and inner factors as being able to achieve a certain degree and of external factors as the school environment.

Abstract [sv]

Studien handlar om studiemotivation utifrån ett elevperspektiv. Med utgångspunkt i utgiven litteratur och publicerad forskning har begreppet och området motivation belysts.

Studiens syfte är att undersöka hur elever i årskurs 9 uppfattar sin studiemotivation och vilken betydelse de anser att den har för deras skolprestation. Även skillnader i resultatet mellan de två skolorna belyses.

Till detta har en kvantitativ undersökningsmetod i form av enkäter genomförts på två grundskolor i Stockholms län. Genom valet av en kvantitativ metod kunde ett relativt stort antal elever delta och statistik presenteras.

Resultatet pekar på att studiemotivationen hos eleverna på de undersökta skolorna kan både öka och minska genom olika faktorer. De olika faktorer som uppmärksammats i denna studie är direkt kopplade till skolan och innefattar bl.a. vikten av att få påverka undervisningen, inre faktorer som t ex att uppnå visst betyg eller yttre faktorer som t ex skolmiljön.
