Rewards For Testing What if I told you that you can earn a cool incentive or reward for doing well on a test?
The purpose of doing this is because I wanted to know if students would work harder for an incentive or reward. My question is will students work harder for a incentive for getting a A on a test.
My expectations of this project is that most, or more than 50% of the people who took my project would agree with the question, ''Should there be a reward for good testing''? My findings show that 77.8% of the students who took my survey did agree with that question proving my expectations correct.
The findings that surprised me is when I asked the question, ''Should there be a reward for good testing'', I got one answer no. My expectation with that question is all yeses and maybe one maybe, but I didn't expect a no at all. Another thing that surprised me is that on the question, ''Would you work and study harder in school if you knew that if you got an A you’d earn an incentive'', I expected a maybe and yes, but someone who took my survey said not sure and that surprised me.
