Abstract: Learners’ current motivation according to the conceptualization of Rheinberg and colleagues is crucial for taking up and pursuing learning activities. Yet, there is still little research regarding the necessary level of factors affecting current motivation itself. This study was designed to start filling this research gap by examining the relative contributions of person-related factors on students’ current motivation to learn with a digitally-supported learning environment, focusing on experiments in chemistry education. The study’s sample consisted of 155 second graders. Multiple linear regression and necessary condition analysis (NCA) were used to investigate possible factors that predict students’ current motivation to learn (i.e., interest and challenge). Results indicate that students’ self-perceived experimentation competence and self-determination positively influence interest, while self-determination alone predicts challenge. However, NCA results reveal all variables as necessary conditions, that set restrictions for the maximum level of interest and challenge. Practical and research related implications are discussed.
