What keeps Chinese students motivated in doing math homework?

As many students face the enduring challenge of maintaining their motivation to complete homework assignments, there is a critical need to pay close attention to homework motivation management (i.e., student’s efforts to sustain or enhance their motivation in order to complete homework assignments that might be boring or difficult).

Yet, in spite of research showing that homework motivation has a powerful influence on homework performance and academic achievement, there have been few attempts to systematically investigate models of factors that influence homework motivation management.
