Abstract

Teachers of the retarded universally lament that their students bring to academic tasks a low incentive to succeed. Can it be substantiated that the retarded students possess less self motivation than normal students: Does research reveal any consistent pattern of response by retarded students to motivational engendering efforts? The goal of this paper was to examine the significant research designed to delve into these problems.
