Preservice Teachers' Help-Seeking Tendencies and Self-Regulation of Learning
Bembenutty, Hefer
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Francisco, CA, Apr 2006)
The present study examined the associations between preservice teachers' help seeking tendencies, homework beliefs and behavior, and their individual characteristics such as academic delay of gratification, self-esteem, and self-handicap behavior (N = 63). The results indicated that preservice teachers who have a positive attitude toward help seeking are those who report high homework self-efficacy beliefs and high homework intrinsic interest. A preference for seeking help from peers appears to be inversely related to their homework intrinsic interest. Preservice teacher with a positive attitude toward help seeking are those who prefer to delay gratification, have high self-esteem, and low tendency to engage in a self-handicap behavior. Educational implications are discussed. The following are appended: (1) Homework Intrinsic Interest, Homework Self-Efficacy Beliefs, and Homework Self-Regulation; and (2) Activity References.
