  1. I find grades don’t really motivate. They may coerce students who otherwise would not try as much, but those who get good grades are already motivated, and those who get bad grades often are very difficult to motivate because they don’t think they can do better. I think that inspiring, encouraging, energetic teachers are better motivators than grades, technology, tests, treats, or performances. Still, of the choices in your survey, one is relatively stronger than the others.
