This study was carried out to investigate teachers' motivation and academic performance
of students. To establish the types of motivation used in Kereri secondary school. To
determine whether the methods of motivation used contribute to academic performance
in the school. From the research study, it was evident that there existed a notable
relationship between a teacher motivation and academic performance of students in the
subject handled by the same teacher. It was note -worthy that rewards given to teachers
boosted their morale and this subsequently improved student's performance. Verbal
praises have 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 leamers 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. Prize giving ceremonies should be held in schools on termly
basis to reward teachers and students for their good performance. The govemment and
the heads of schools should over-relie on extrinsic motivation as opposed to intrinsic motivation.
