Assessing and Predicting College Students' Use of Strategies for the Self-Regulation of Motivation
Wolters, Christopher A.; Benzon, Maria B.
Journal of Experimental Education, v81 n2 p199-221 2013
College students ("N" = 215) completed a self-report instrument designed to assess different regulation of motivation strategies as well as aspects of their motivational beliefs, use of cognitive and metacognitive learning strategies, and procrastination. The study serves to extend the research on the self-regulation of motivation through three related findings. One, results indicate that the instrument evaluated in the study provides a reliable and valid method for assessing six motivational regulation strategies in a college population. Two, analyses revealed differences in the extent that students reported using the regulation of motivation strategies, while also showing them to be related to other aspects of self-regulated learning in a theoretically consistent way. Last, findings from a series of multiple regressions indicate that students' engagement in motivational regulation is a function of their existing motivational beliefs and attitudes.
