Measuring Motivation in Children Served by Head Start

This study examines a newly developed, computer based, measure of children's motivation orientation, or how they deal with setbacks and failures inherent to learning situations, in a culturally diverse sample of children enrolled in the Miami-Dade Head Start program. Multilevel modeling will be utilized to examine the concurrent and predictive validity of the newly developed measure of motivation orientation in relation to other school readiness outcomes (i.e. early science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), language, and approaches to learning) across the preschool year. Results will allow for evaluation of early childhood interventions that aim to close the national school readiness achievement gap by targeting motivation orientation, a powerful domain-general skill.
