Description

The contribution focuses on exploring upper secondary students’ intrinsic motivation and its predictors in relation to different student engagement in experimental activities. The data were collected via a questionnaire based on the Intrinsic Motivation Inventory and analysed using Welch’s one-way ANOVA. Three experimental activities were compared: (1) lecture demonstrations with low student engagement, (2) science show with higher student engagement and (3) students’ hands-on experimentation. Respondents’ perception of these activities is as follows: (1) lowest interest, lowest effort, medium value, (2) highest interest, medium effort, lowest value and (3) medium interest, highest effort, highest value.
