Here’s an ideal way to evaluate underachieving or unmotivated students. The AMP tells you why students are underachieving and how to help them change.
The test includes two forms: High School/College and Grades 5–8. Both produce scale scores for four domains: Motivation for Achievement; Inner Resources; Interpersonal Strengths; and Work Habits. In addition, three validity measures alert you to inconsistent, self-enhancing, and self-criticizing response styles.
Items are written at a fourth-grade reading level, and students respond using a 5-point Likert scale. Computer scoring is available for the High School/College Form—an option that gives you a complete interpretive report, with individualized recommendations for underachieving students.
Validated against objective measures of achievement, the AMP provides a sound basis for instructional or psychotherapeutic intervention.
