ABSTRACT Teacher motivation has become an important issue given their responsibility to impaii

knowledge and skills to learners. Consequently, this study investigated the effects of

motivation on the performance of school teachers in Serere District. Specifically, the study

sought to find out whether motivation of teachers had any effect on their morale to perform

and; the effect of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation on the performance of teachers. A

descriptive survey research design was adapted where a total sample of 135 respondents

including teachers, head teachers, school management committee members (BOG) and the

Serere Education Officer (DEO) were consulted. The primary data was collected using

structured questionnaires for teachers, as well as key informant interview guides for head

teachers and DEO. A focus group discussion was also held with BOG members in the area.

Consequently, both qualitative and quantitative data were collected.

Research findings revealed that the performance of teachers was good despite the fact that

their motivation was inadequate. Besides, the majority of the teachers performed their

activities with high morale as evidenced from repoiiing early at school, regular testing

and examination of pupils and high turn up of teachers in staff meetings and school

occasions among o t h e rs . A significant positive relationship between intrinsic

motivation and performance of teachers was also found to exist in schools in Serere

District. On the other hand, a positive relationship was also revealed between

extrinsic motivation and performance of teachers, implying that extrinsic motivation

affected the perfonnance of teachers in Serere District.

In order to improve teacher motivation and performance at work, the study recommended

increase in the salary of primary teachers to match the increased cost of living, provision

of accommodation to teachers, strengthening of supervision as well as instituting awards

for good performance, among others.
