Relationships between Harter's Scale of Intrinsic versus Extrinsic Orientation and Bandura's Scale of Self-Efficacy for Self-Regulated Learning.
Rule, David L.; Griesemer, Bonnie A.
A recent unpublished study by B. Griesemer (1995) studied the relationship between motivation and self-efficacy for learning among 146 sixth graders. Griesemer used two instruments in that study: one to measure intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation composed of three subscales from the Scale of Intrinsic versus Extrinsic Orientation in the Classroom by S. Harter (1980) and the other a subscale measuring self-efficacy for self-regulated learning developed, but not published, by A. Bandura. Results of Griesemer's original study were inconclusive, and she hypothesized that the two instruments may have been measuring aspects of the same construct. The present study is a followup examination of data from the original study. Reliability and factorial validity were studied for both instruments, and subscale intercorrelations were determined. Results support the idea that the scales do measure aspects of the same underlying constructs. Both instruments may be assessing the connection between classroom self-efficacy and learning self-regulation from different perspectives. An appendix presents the unpublished instrument developed by Bandura. (Contains seven tables and seven references.) (SLD)
