Expectancy-Value Theory

This theory has two components,”expectancy” is a persons confidence about the probability of completing an  assignment,or tasks successfully,”value” come down to how much  a person wants  to perform  an undertaking,and the  value he or she puts on its completion.I think it is an important aspect of motivation to let students see the “why” of what they are learning.[this is important for myself personally].Once they know the  “why“,then it will be easier  for the person to see  the value. As far as a students self efficacy,or anxiety towards a subject,hopefully providing a positive classroom learning community ,clear and realistic  goals,and prompt feedback,would all help.For myself,examples from  previous students  work,and a support system where questions can be answered with out feeling judged are imperative to increasing  my engagement and  belief in success.
