Abstract

This project is a student survey based on choice in the classroom (course work, assignments, and projects) as well as during a block of student selected time (FLEX) and how these choice opportunities impact student academic motivation. This survey was constructed based on the literature available in the area of student choice, motivation, autonomy and interest. The survey can be adjusted to fit many learning environments and is designed to provide administrators and school leaders feedback on the choices offered to students in their school as well as how students feel the choices they are offered affect their motivation and learning.
