Authors:  .
  Abstract:  The present study is a literature review focused on investigating student academic motivation in relationship with academic performance. Much research has been dedicated to exploring student motivation, the types of motivations and the impact of motivation on student behavior and classroom performance. A specific line of research has explored specifically how teachers understand the use of rewards in classroom, what is the student outcome as of result of using various motivational strategies, and which are the most effective ways to motivate students. Practice shows that a vast majority of teachers use predominantly rewards to enhance student academic motivation, but recent research shows that extensive use of rewards in classrooms can have a negative impact on student intrinsic motivation, and in the long run, a negative impact on student academic achievement as well.

Key words: motivation, rewards, teacher education.
