The Alberta Consortium for Motivation and Emotion (ACME)

The Alberta Consortium for Motivation and Emotion (ACME) was established in 2011 and is an affiliate lab with the Centre for Research in Applied Measurement and Evaluation (CRAME). ACME members examine how motivation and emotions influence people in achievement settings such as school, sports, or therapy. ACME was created to support graduate students at the University of Alberta with a shared interest in motivation and emotion and a desire to actively pursue and disseminate research in collaboration with the director and beyond their thesis requirements. We work primarily from the following theoretical frameworks: achievement goal theory, mindset theory, attribution theory, control value theory of emotions, self-determination theory, self-efficacy.
