Learner motivational constructs of self-efficacy, self-regulation, and goal orientation in predicting successful student performance in online courses were explored. Thirty-three undergraduate students from the online courses Introduction to Educational Technology and Introduction to Education completed sections of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ; Pintrich, Smith, Garcia, & McKeachie, 1991). A multiple regression analysis was performed using the MSLQ responses and final course point's data from 31 of the participants in the two online courses. No significant results for the independent variables of self-efficacy, self-regulation, and goal orientation in predicting student performance in the two online courses were found. Further data analysis found significant positive correlations between the independent variables self-efficacy, self-regulation, and goal orientation.
