discussion board questionTheories often evolve from previous theories. As you noted in Week 2, job characteristics and
job enrichment theory incorporate key elements of job/work design theory. In Week 3, you
discovered that organizational justice theories emerged from equity theory. This week, you
discover that the same evolutionary trajectory occurs as basic principles of cognitive evaluation
theory (CET) appear in the broader and more comprehensive self-determination theory (SET).
Organizational psychology professionals might be asked to address issues relating to low worker
motivation and failure to achieve goals. Recognizing that most individuals perform work
assignments because they have to and not because they want to, Deci and Ryan (2000) suggest
workers develop an “active personal commitment” to their job (p. 60). To achieve this objective,
these researchers recommend a course in which employees internalize and integrate their values
into their work tasks.
For this Discussion, think about the relationship between CET and SDT. Then select a
professional or academic goal that you have achieved and consider why you achieved that goal
based on SDT.
With these thoughts in mind:
Write a brief explanation of self-determination theory. Then explain how self-determination
theory is an extension of cognitive evaluation theory. Finally, describe the goal you selected and
explain why you achieved that goal based on self-determination theory.
