Please help me to understand the APA Code of Ethics which states that psychologists must inform research participants about ” incentives for participation”. Giving course credit to psychological research participants is ethical, but is it ethical to base students’ grades on whether they participate in the research? This is but one example of the relationship between ethics and motivation. what are some other ways that ethics and motivation intersect, particularly in educational settings or other learning environments.
