Abstract

© 2023 EECERA.This study examines the effects of Motivational Enhancement Training on male preservice preschool teachers’ motivation and vocational-outcome expectations, using a randomized pretest-posttest control group design. Of the 34 participants, 17 formed the experimental group and the other 17, the control group. A Personal Information Form, Adult Motivation Scale and Vocational Outcome Expectation Scale, all adopted from prior literature, were used as data-collection tools. Data analysis relied on two-way analysis of variance for repeated measurements and t-testing. This revealed that Motivational Enhancement Training increased both the motivation and vocational-outcome expectations of the participants in the experimental group significantly as compared to those in the control group.
