The Assessment of Student Study Skills and Learning Strategies To Prepare Teachers for Academic Advising Tasks or The Prevalidation of Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ), Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI), and Test of Reactions and Adaptation to College (TRAC).
Gilles, L. Talbot
This study was conducted to pre-validate the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ), the Learning and Study Skills Inventory (LASSI), and the Test of Reactions and Adaptations to College (TRAC) on a sample of students (N=103) from the population of psychology majors at Champlain Regional College, Saint Lawrence campus. The purpose of the pre-validation process was to provide information about student study skills and learning strategies for teachers to use during academic advising tasks; and to help teachers understand student performances, or non-performances, when students have the ability and resources. The report is organized into five chapters: (1) "Introduction" addresses developmental education; (2) "Instruments Field-tested" introduces and provides criteria for the selection and review of the three instruments; (3) "Psychometric Aspects of the MSLQ, LASSI, and TRAC on Saint Lawrence Students" provides information on the population, and the validity, reliability, and standardization of the three instruments; (4) "The Analysis of Student Performances with respect to Entry Level Study Skills and Learning Strategies"; and (5) "Conclusions" concludes that the academic advising effort in psychology courses should be directed at "test preparation,""self-efficacy for learning and performance," and "anxiety," and explores some implications for further research. Twenty-three tables are included. Contains 41 references. (LL)
