Term Definition
extrinsic

not inherent but originating outside. In education it is most often used in relation to activity where the learner is motivated or values the activity because of something other than the activity itself - future reward for example. The learner thus experiences extrinsic motivation or places extrinsic value on the activity (see intrinsic).
