ABSTRACT

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.
