Abstract: How do researchers define passion? What are the outcomes of passion? What variables ignite passion? To answer these questions, we performed a systematic review of studies within the context of education. After conducting a search in major electronic databases, we presented the primary findings of 13 articles from 2004 to 2013. This review indicates that the most shared features of passion's conceptualization are dedication, persistence, identification with and love for the activity. Passion research in education revealed a diversity of consequences, such as engagement, creativity, the subject's election or mastery goals, and a diversity of promoters, such as positive relationships, supportive context or an innovative cognitive style. An understanding of passion is important in fostering students’ adjustment and knowledge. We conclude this review with some theoretical and methodological suggestions for future research.
