Abstract:Academic motivation and self-esteem have been regarded as essential constructs in the academic world. Previous studies have already explored their relations on the trait-level (between-person), indicating a positive correlation and thus inferring conclusions and recommendations for the state-level (within-person). However, the same relations between academic motivation and self-esteem cannot be inferred on the within-person level. Therefore, a knowledge gap exists regarding the association between academic motivation and self-esteem at the momentary level. This study is intended to explore to what extent the two constructs are associated on the state-level. Moreover, it assesses whether this association can also be found on the trait-level for the sample of the current study. An online experience sampling study including 35 participants was conducted. To measure the state-level, four state questions were formulated by the researcher, two questions per construct. Fluctuations between and within the two constrcuts were indicated. A positive correlation between state self-esteem and trait self-esteem was demonstrated. The same was indicated for academic motivation. The LMM analysis proposes that state academic motivation has a much stronger correlation within individuals than at the between-person level with self-esteem. Following the outcomes of the current study and previous research, recommendations for future studies are discussed.
