Welcome to the Children's Motivation Project at Reed College!

We work with preschoolers through early adolescents to understand what motivates students to learn and how motivation can be sustained and promoted. Our research studies take place in the classrooms of local elementary and middle schools, and here in the Department of Psychology at Reed College. Please visit the Current Studies page to learn more about our research.

If you would like to be on our list of families with children who are interested in participating in our research projects, please go to the Participate page. Thanks!
