The Achievement Motivation and Emotion (AME) Research Group under the direction of Nathan C. Hall explores the psychosocial determinants of optimal development in achievement settings, with a specific focus on the structure, effects, and self-regulation of motivation (e.g., strategies, goals, beliefs) and discrete emotions (e.g., boredom, enjoyment, anger), as well as the development and evaluation of motivational interventions (e.g., via digital/social media) as predictors of achievement (e.g., GPA, employment), persistence (e.g., dropout in students and teachers), and health (physical and psychological).
