The focus of the present research was to investigate impact of teacher
student relationship on achievement motivation of students. It was
hypothesized that there is likely to be a relationship between teacher
student relationship and achievement motivation. A sample of 20 teachers
and 100 students using purposive sampling technique was taken from
different government institutes of Lahore. A self-made demographic
questionnaire, Student Teacher Relationship Scale (STRS) by Pianta
(2001) and Achievement Motivation Scale by Ray (1979) were used for
measuring teacher –student relationship and achievement motivation of
the students. Pearson product moment correlation coefficient, independent
sample t-test and regression analysis were used for data
analysis. Results indicated that there was significant positive relationship
between teachers and students’ relationship but no significant relationship
between teacher behavior with student motivation. Results were discussed
and compared in the light of western and indigenous researches.
