Motivation and Strategies for Learning in Traditional-Aged College Students: An Exploratory Study
Santarosa, Stephanie R.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of Akron
This exploratory study uses the 15 scales of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) to examine how traditional-aged college students in their first year of college compare with those who have persisted to their second year. In addition, the relationship of students' motivation levels and use of learning strategies with student success and retention is examined. The goal of the study is to provide insights on how higher education administrators, faculty, advisors, and student development professionals can better help students learn and pursue their educational goals.
