The McGill Goal Study

Want to get involved with ongoing motivation research ? Have you wondered about your goals for the year & the reasons why these goals matter to you?


Each September we recruit McGill students for our annual ONLINE goal study. Over the course of the academic year we track what goals you're pursuing and what goals you're letting go of.


We are interested in finding out more about what goals students are pursuing, and how others help students in their goal pursuit. We will ask you to fill out several surveys about your life and experiences over the course of the school year for up to $50 compensation. If you are interested in participating, please email for more information about the study and to receive the first survey link.
