This study will assist teachers in the transition from distant learning to in person learning. For this purpose, the study looks at whether positive feedback made a difference in the amount of work turned in by students causing a difference in their intrinsic motivation to complete work. The study is being done on forty-nine middle school students. The first treatment group will receive positive words of encouragement on their assignments throughout their learning on a unit. The second treatment group will receive only a number grade on a three-point scale. The research will provide an intervention that could be done in all classrooms to help increase intrinsic motivation.
