Guan, Yi; Wang, Jianjun; Young, Michael; Owen, Steve; Andrew, Richard
This study first examined the motivation construct with personal goals, agency beliefs, and emotions in a World Wide Web assisted learning environment. It also investigated the influence of personal goals, agency beliefs, and emotions on the students' learning achievement from fundamental biology courses assisted with Web pages. Finally, it examined the relationships among personal goals, agency beliefs, and emotions. Participants were 356 students who took undergraduate fundamental biology classes in which the instructors used Web pages as supplemental tools to assist student learning. After the final exam, the students filled out an online questionnaire in order to measure their personal goals, agency beliefs, and emotions in using Web pages to assist learning. Students' course grades were used to measure their learning achievement. Data indicated that there were significant and direct causal links from students' personal goals to their course grades, from personal goals to emotions, and from emotions to personal agency beliefs. The questionnaire is appended. (MES)
