A Latent Profile Analysis of University Students' Self-Regulated Learning Strategies
Ning, Hoi Kwan; Downing, Kevin
Studies in Higher Education, v40 n7 p1328-1346 2015
Based on self-reported cognitive, metacognitive, and behavioural strategy measures obtained from 828 final-year students from a university in Hong Kong, latent profile analysis (LPA) identified four distinct types of students with differential self-regulated learning strategy orientations: "competent self-regulated learners", "cognitive-oriented self-regulated learners", "behavioural-oriented self-regulated learners", and "minimal self-regulated learners". Students in the competent SRL profile demonstrated the highest levels of academic self-concept, motivation, attitude, and the lowest level of test anxiety and best academic performance. Multinomial logistic regression analysis also indicated that learning experience factors (teaching quality, clear goals and standards, appropriate assessment and workload) were significant predictors of SRL profile membership. The profiling of student self-regulated learning strategies resulted in enhanced understanding of the complex range of processes students employ and offered new insights into this emerging area of student learning.
