A thought on motivation…

Daniel Pink’s research around what motivates people in different situations is an interesting piece of the puzzle as we continue to think about the changes we are working through in assessment.  His work is summarized here in this animation based on his book called Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us.  Happy weekend, stay warm:)
