An Investigation of Components in Corno and Mandinach's Self-Regulated Learning Model Applied to Internet Navigation.
Rogers, Donna M.; Swan, Karen
This study examined the nature and extent of the applicability of Corno and Mandinach's (1983) self-regulation model in the new context of activities of searching the Internet. Data were collected from observations of 80 undergraduate subjects while they searched the Internet for information, as well as from survey information regarding their perceptions of their use of self-regulation strategies and processes. Cluster analysis methodology was used to isolate four independent groups of subjects, with labeling consistent with the four forms of cognitive engagement of the model (i.e., self-regulated learning, task focus, resource management, and recipient). The results provide evidence of the application of the cognitive and metacognitive strategies and processes of the Corno and Mandinach model by students while navigating the unstructured Internet. In addition, three patterns of student Internet searching emerged from the data. (Contains 12 references and 4 tables.) (MES)
