Moreover, the positive effect associated with the levels of interest generated from both situational and individual factors has been found to contribute to cognitive performance (Ainley, Hidi, & Berndorff, 2002). 3 Motivation Motivation is an internal state that arouses, directs, and sustains students’ behavior and is important because students cannot learn unless they are motivated (Palmer, 2009). Therefore, researchers who have studied motivation attempt to explain why students strive for particular goals when learning chemistry, how intensively they strive, how long they strive, and what feelings and emotions characterize them in this process (Glynn & Koballa, 2006).

The construct of self-concept is potentially important and useful in explaining and predicting how someone acts (Bong & Skaalvik, 2003). One’s perceptions of himself/herself are thought to influence the ways in which he/she acts, and his/her acts in turn influence the ways in which he/she perceives himself/herself, such as what attributes they think they possess, what roles they presume they are expected to play, what they believe they are capable of, how they view their feelings in comparison with others, and how they judge the way they are viewed by others.
