Relationship between Achievement Goal Orientations and Use of Learning Strategies.
Yildirim, Ali; Somuncuoglu, Yesim
This study aims to identify students' achievement goal orientations, learning strategies they use and the relationship between goal orientations and learning strategies. The sample included 189 students taking an educational psychology course at the undergraduate level. They filled out a questionnaire on goal orientations and learning strategies. Results indicate that the students are very close to mastery orientation and somewhat ego-social as a whole. Students use deep cognitive strategies often while they use surface and metacognitive strategies sometimes. Mastery orientation predicts the use of deep cognitive and metacognitive strategies, but when such an orientation is salient, less surface cognitive strategy use is expected. Ego- social orientation predicts surface cognitive strategy use, but does not relate to deep and metacognitive strategy use at all. Finally, work-avoidant orientation negatively correlated with both deep cognitive and metacognitive strategy use. (Contains 7 tables and 40 references.) (SLD)
