Abstract

Although all versions of the expectancy-valence model of work motivation hypothesize multiplication of expectancies and valences, a methodologically adequate test of the validity of the multiplicative hypothesis has not been carried out. The research reports an initial test of the validity of the multiplicative hypothesis. Results provide general support for the interaction of expectancy and valence in the determination of motivational force.
