The objective of the study is to investigate whether and potentially how academic motivation among teachers and students in upper secondary school can be stimulated through promoting a mastery-oriented learning climate. The study focuses particularly on goal orientation theory and testing of strategies aiming to promote academic motivation from the theoretical framework TARGET.

Students’ academic motivation decreases from the end of primary school, a trend that continues through lower and upper secondary school. Hence, it is important to investigate whether and potentially how working with strategies for stimulating academic motivation may influence students' and teachers' motivation to better master everyday school life. The study is part of a partnership through decentralized competence development (‘Dekom’) between Center for Learning Environment and one upper secondary school in Rogaland county. The study may contribute with evidence-based knowledge about how teachers in upper secondary school can motivate and stimulate mastery of schoolwork among their students. The study will also evaluate the utility of strategies aimed to promote motivation for academic work among teachers and students.
