Teaching Tips for Users of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ).
Johnson, Glenn Ross; And Others
This document offers teaching tips to be used if, on administration of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ), a class were to present a profile of scores that would suggest the need for help in one or more of the motivation or learning strategies areas assessed by the MSLQ. Some tips are supported by research; others are based on teacher experiences. The document format follows the format of the MSLQ, which contains 31 motivation items, 31 learning strategies items, and 19 resource management items. Thus Part A: Motivation Scales of the MSLQ covers intrinsic goal orientation, extrinsic goal orientation, task value, control beliefs, self-efficacy for learning and performance, and test anxiety. Part B: Cognitive Scales treats rehearsal strategies, elaboration strategies, organization strategies, critical thinking, metacognitive self-regulation, time and study management, effort management, peer learning, and help-seeking behavior. Each instance offers a brief description of the concept, three or four tips for addressing a problem with that concept, and explanation organized around "how" and "why." The tips total 89. Appended are 13 references. (JB)
