Results show that effects are there really, autonomous motivation factors (Sense of competence, self-determination, to master the knowledge for self-improvement, to improve one’s own skill level) produce significantly positive effects on the different participating stages. However, the controlling motivation factor (have to participate in training for not offending village or township cadres) has significant negative influence on the participation.
