Perception of Self-Efficacy, Academic Delay of Gratification, and Use of Learning Strategies among Korean College Students
Bembenutty, Hefer
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (San Diego, CA, Apr 2004)
The purpose of the present study was to examine the association between students' self-efficacy beliefs, satisfaction with their academic performance, expected grade, willingness to delay gratification, use of volitional strategies, and final course grade among Korean college students. The results support the hypothesized relationship between students' motivational beliefs, use of self-regulation, such as delay of gratification and volitional learning strategies, and final course grade. Final course grade was related to delay of gratification and expected grade. Delay of gratification was significantly related to expected grade, satisfaction with academic performance, use of volitional control, and self-efficacy beliefs. These findings serve to establish academic delay of gratification as an important self-regulatory strategy useful to protect intentions from distracting tendencies while academic goals are pressing and that delay of gratification is associated with the students' self-efficacy beliefs for learning, as well as expected grade, satisfaction with academic performance, and final course grade. The Academic Delay of Gratification Scale (ADOGS) is appended. (Contains 1 table.)
