Table 1 Group composition for statistical comparisons to test the hypotheses on strength and type of motivation

From: Motivation of medical students: selection by motivation or motivation by selection

Hypothesis 1 To study the influence of motivation on selection the strength and type of motivation of the following two groups were compared
Group 1 Group 2
Selected students Non-selected students
Y1selection + GE + Y4selection Y1lottery + Y1top GPA + Y4lottery + Y4top GPA
Hypothesis 2 To study the influence of selection on motivation the strength and type of motivation of the following two groups were compared
Group 1 Group 2
Recently selected students Non-(recently) selected students
Y1selection + GE Y1lottery + Y1top GPA + Y4lottery + Y4top GPA + Y4selection
  1. Hypothesis 1: selected students report higher strength and autonomous motivation than non-selected (lottery and top GPA) students
  2. Hypothesis 2: recently selected students report higher strength and autonomous motivation than students who were selected longer ago and non-selected (lottery and top GPA) students
  3. Y1 selection, lottery, top GPA Year 1 students who are recently admitted based on selection procedure, weighted lottery and top GPA respectively
  4. Y4 selection, lottery, top GPA Year 4 students who are admitted longer ago based on selection procedure, weighted lottery and top GPA respectively
  5. GE Graduate Entry students who are recently admitted based on selection procedure
