Now that you are working on the case assignment I want you to review some theories pertaining to motivation to learn.

This contradiction provides a rationale for examining the role of motivation in distance education. Since more and more students are turning toward online learning to meet their educational needs, it is important to focus on motivation in online learning.Read and review the Powerpoint and readings and complete the sample Compass placement test (Sentence Skills, Reading Comprehension, and College-level Math sections). http://professionals.collegeboard.com/profdownload/accuplacer-sample-questions-for-students.pdf1.
