Self-Determination Theory (SDT) proposes that autonomy, belonging, and competence are major contributors to human motivation. To test this, several randomized controlled trials were developed to test the pillars of SDT. Skill Builders in ASSISTments were developed to deploy the proposed studies. The data were processed first with python to extract relevant features, and SPSS was used to generate statistic analyses. The statistics were then analyzed to validate the claims of SDT.
