Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine if elementary school principals used the motivators of Herzberg's Motivation-Hygiene Theory in the written performance evaluation of teachers, if any specific types of motivational factors were used, and the frequency of such factors. The study was conducted in a large Western school district and the methodology of content analysis was applied to 200 teacher evaluations, using the motivators of the Motivation-Hygiene Theory as the categories. It was determined that elementary principals do use constructs of motivational theory in written performance evaluations and in this study, the category of work itself was the most often used.
