PSYC-101 Motivation Assignment (30 pts)
The purpose of this assignment is for students to show an understanding of Motivation and
concepts associated with it. Students must then apply this understanding to a specific example
and to an example in their own life.
To successfully complete this assignment, students must:
1. Answer every question in complete sentences!
2. Include textbook citations within the answer in APA style.
3. Make sure that there is an APA reference page attached to the assignment.
4. Make sure to follow all directions in the assignment, including word counts.
5. Upload the assignment by the due date, including the APA Reference page.
Hint: When using Google docs the formatting gets messed up on the Reference page when the

important. You might want to save your assignment as a PDF file and then upload it!
