- An overview of relevant theories related to the motivation topic you selected.
- A description of major theoretical propositions and/or major hypotheses of those theories.
- A review and synthesis of the studies related to the motivation topic you selected.
- A review and synthesis of studies related to the key independent, dependent, and covariate variables in order to produce a description and explanation of what is known about the variables, what is controversial (i.e., mixed findings by researchers), and what remains to be studied.
