Also perceived autonomy support had a significant direct positive effect on learning outcomes and processes. Second, external had a significant positive effect on duty motivation and duty motivation had a direct positive effect on identified duty. In addition to identified motivation had a significant positive effect on intrinsic motivation, learning outcomes and processes. Third, intrinsic motivation had positively influenced on learning outcomes and processes. As the last of the findings, perceived autonomy support, duty motivation and identified motivation had significant effects on learning outcomes and processes.
