    Motivational Design is the correct answer because in the humanist theory, it refers to the process of arranging resources and procedures to bring about changes in motivation. This involves understanding and addressing the individual's needs, interests, and goals in order to create a learning environment that enhances motivation and engagement. It focuses on designing instructional strategies, activities, and materials that promote intrinsic motivation and self-directed learning.

    B. Keller
    Explanation
    Keller is the correct answer because he is the theorist who created the ARCS model, which stands for Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction. This model focuses on creating a motivational learning environment by addressing these four aspects.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

This approach believes that students should be at the center of their own learning process, with a curriculum that is tailored to their individual needs and interests. The focus is on fostering a positive and supportive learning environment that encourages students to explore their own passions and goals. Therefore, the statement that the humanistic approach to learning focuses on self-actualization and student-centered curriculum is true.

  • 5. 

    Which is NOT a way to gain a learner’s attention?

    • A.

      Variability

    • B.

      Perceptual Arousal

    • C.

      Inquiry Arousal

    • D.

      Consistency

    Correct Answer
    D. Consistency
    Explanation
    Consistency is not a way to gain a learner's attention because it refers to maintaining a stable and predictable learning environment. While consistency is important for effective learning, it does not actively engage or grab the learner's attention. Variability, perceptual arousal, and inquiry arousal, on the other hand, are all strategies that can be used to capture a learner's attention by introducing novelty, stimulating the senses, and encouraging curiosity and active participation.

  • 6. 

    In the beginning of the lesson on animals, Bernadette's attention was caught by the teacher giving interesting facts about animals.  Bernadette has three pets and dreams to be a Veterinarian someday so she was able to relate this lesson to her own personal experiences. She realized she knew more about the topic of animals then she thought.  Even though she is interested in the topic, she is very unsure if she is doing her project right because the teacher was not giving enough feedback for her to achieve success.  What part of the ARCS model did the teacher miss?

    • A.

      Attention

    • B.

      Relevance

    • C.

      Confidence

    • D.

      Satisfaction

    Correct Answer
    C. Confidence
    Explanation
    The teacher missed the Confidence component of the ARCS model. This is evident from the fact that Bernadette is unsure if she is doing her project right because the teacher is not providing enough feedback. Confidence is important for learners to feel assured in their abilities and to believe that they can successfully complete the task at hand. By not providing enough feedback, the teacher is not fostering a sense of confidence in Bernadette, which could hinder her progress and motivation.

  • 7. 

    Mr. Hudson is designing a training program to help teachers learn how to use the new technologies at school (ipods, smart tables, smartboards, elmos, ect).  He has decided to follow the ARCS model since teachers are unmotivated to learning new technologies.  Using the ARCS model, should he analyze the needs of his learners by asking the following questions: What value would you get from learning the new technologies? What do you hope to get out of learning about the new technologies? What interests you the most about the new technology or what types of new technology interests you the most? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mr. Hudson should analyze the needs of his learners by asking the questions mentioned. The ARCS model focuses on four components: Attention, Relevance, Confidence, and Satisfaction. By asking these questions, Mr. Hudson can assess the learners' level of attention and interest in the new technologies, understand their expectations and motivations, and tailor the training program accordingly. This will help increase their engagement and motivation to learn the new technologies.

  • 8. 

    Motivation is the primary factor in completing training in this type of education?

    • A.

      High School Education

    • B.

      Dog Training

    • C.

      Distance Learning

    • D.

      Military Training

    Correct Answer
    C. Distance Learning
    Explanation
    Distance learning refers to a type of education where students can complete their training remotely, without having to physically attend a traditional classroom. In this form of education, motivation plays a crucial role in completing the training successfully. Since distance learning requires self-discipline, time management, and the ability to stay motivated without direct supervision, individuals who lack motivation may struggle to complete their training. Therefore, motivation is considered the primary factor in successfully completing training in distance learning.

    Using humor is often an effective way to capture the attention of learners. It can create a positive and engaging atmosphere, making the learning experience more enjoyable. By starting a writing lesson with a humorous slideshow, Mr. Maines is likely to grab the learners' attention and make them more receptive to the content being taught. This approach can help to create a positive learning environment and increase student engagement and participation.

By making the lesson relevant to the students' lives and interests, Mrs. Kundera can capture their attention and keep them engaged in the lesson. This can be done by connecting the historical facts to real-world examples, showing how the information is applicable to their lives, or using interactive activities that allow the students to actively participate and apply the knowledge.
