A Manual for the Use of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ).
Pintrich, Paul R.; And Others
This manual is a guide to the "Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire" (MSLQ) for assessing college students' motivational orientations and their use of different learning strategies for a college course. The MSLQ, based on a general cognitive view of motivation and learning strategies, contains two sections. The motivation section consists of 31 items that assess students' goals and value beliefs for a course. The learning strategies section includes 31 items regarding students' use of different cognitive and metacognitive strategies and 19 items concerning student management of different resources. The guide contains an introduction that details the survey's development, scoring, organization, and administration suggestions. Two sections explain the two components of the instrument in detail, listing the items, explaining their significance, and offering descriptive statistics. Also included in other sections are a sample fact sheet; a sample demographic sheet; a copy of the questionnaire itself; a sample feedback form; 11 references; and an appendix listing demographic information, scale correlations, and confirmatory factor analysis results.
