Tech. Com #4: "Do you think we should give monetary incentives to the KP2 students to motivate them to get better grades?"

I don’t think that we should give money as an incentives to the KP2 students to motivate them to get better grades because it more contra than pro. Reason why I mentioned like this because the results of the study showed that bribing students for positive actions and not using negative punishment is effective; however bribing student to improve test scores yielded little or no positive effect. Students, who were paid to alter behavior they were in control of, such as arriving at school on time, completing homework, or wearing uniforms to school, were more successful overall than students paid to do well on exams only.

As we know, students already get their loan every semester and why if we give extra incentives could motivate them. What the differences between loan and extra incentives?Both of them its money right, so if we give them monetary incentives I don’t think they will motivated themselves to get better but will make them become more materialistic and not focus on their study.

Carol Dweck, professor of psychology at Stanford University, believes that students can learn to cultivate an attitude of achievement which she calls a “growth mind-set.” A growth mind-set develops a student’s inner motivation and urges the student to perform at their highest potential. A growth mind-set believes that the ability to learn is cultivated and improved through hard work. In contrast, a student with a “fixed mind-set” gives up when faced with a challenge and believes that intelligence is a fixed quantity which cannot be improved.

“Money gives students a short-term goal, instant gratification and a tangible reason for doing well.”
