ABSTRACT

This study was carried out to investigate teachers' motivation and the academic performance of students. To establish the types of motivation used in Kamuyange Parents' primary school. To determine whether the methods of motivation used to contribute to academic performance in the school. From the research study, it was evident that there existed a notable relationship between teacher motivation and the academic performance of students in the subject handled by the same teacher. It was noted -why the rewards given to teachers boosted their morale and this subsequently improved student's performance. Verbal praises have been noted to be almost trivial as compared to material rewards, promotions and financial rewards. From the study, it was found that when teachers were rewarded, they worked harder and this motivated disinterested! eamers to leam and also preserved and fostered the enthusiasm of those who were interested in leaming. Therefore, extrinsic motivation plays significant role in determining the performance of students in academic. The study recommended that the govemment, through the TSC, should work closely with the heads of schools (both primary and secondary) in order to ear mark industrious teachers for promotions. Ptize giving ceremonies should be held in schools on term basis to reward teachers and students for their good performance. The govenunent and the heads of schools should over-relie on extrinsic motivation as opposed to intrinsic motivation.
