Abstract

The article describes the results of a research on learning motivation development in pupils that was conducted in several Moscow schools over the past few years (this article is the first part of the description of a four-year longitude on learning motivation dynamics in modern elementary school pupils). The research was carried out using the experimental method (a technique by N.I. Goutkina 'A Fairy Tale') and several questionnaires (a technique by N.I. Goutkina 'Inner Schoolchild Position' and a technique by N.G. Louskanova). The results obtained in the research show negative dynamics of learning motivation in pupils during the first two years of school, and it is pupils with initially high level of learning motivation that these two years have the worst effect on.
