Self-Regulated Achievement in the Cegep Student: Motivated Strategies for Learning.
Talbot, Gilles L.
This report and a motivation seminar were prepared for teachers in the Social Sciences Department at Champlain Regional College (Quebec) to study motivational dispositions of students who either avoided registering for a course in Quantitative Methods or failed out in important numbers. Teachers' consensus was that students in general seemed to lack self-regulatory mechanisms for academic achievement. A qualitative survey revealed that teaching students how to study and when to study would promote students' self-regulated academic achievement behaviors. The document is divided into five chapters: in Chapter 1, student cognitions are related to their motivations for studying; Chapter 2 focuses on motivational values and expectations, cognitions, metacognitions, and strategy management; Chapter 3 concentrates on teaching learning strategies to students; Chapter 4 examines teaching form and content and provides a detailed case study; and Chapter 5 presents a discussion, suggestions for future work, and conclusions. Appendixes provide an article entitled "The Danger of Success in Math" (Earl Babbie) and Seminar Presentation Transparency Masters. (Contains approximately 60 references.) (LL)
