Abhinav Dhindsa


The effects of a reward on the need for achievement were examined using a 2x2 [no reward versus reward x difficult versus easy) ANOVA. The participants were 28 university and college students from London, Ontario. The participants did their best to complete a set of anagrams (difficult or easy) and then answered A Quick Measure of Achievement Motivation questionnaire to get an accurate reading of their nAch. The results showed that there was no difference in nAch between the reward F(l,12)= 0.06, p> 0.05 and no reward F(2,12)= 0.00, p> 0.05group.
