Validation of a Model of Personalised Learning
Waldrip, Bruce; Yu, Jeong Jin; Prain, Vaughan
Learning Environments Research, v19 n2 p169-180 Jul 2016
This article focuses on a Personalised Learning model which has 19 scales that were used to evaluate regional students' perceptions of their readiness to learn, assessment processes, engagement, extent to which their learning is personalised and their associations with academic efficacy, academic achievement and student well-being. The data came from an average of 2700 students during each year of a 3-year study in six schools in provincial Victoria. A previously reported instrument was developed to measure students' and teachers' perceptions of the above factors affecting the implementation of Personalised Learning Plans (PLPs). It employed the latest scales to assess a range of PLP indicator variables, with all scales modified for use in an Australian context and with the total number of items kept to a minimum. Only scales that were more sensitive to PLPs were used in order to minimise the length of the instrument. There were three outcome variables: academic efficacy, academic achievement and student well-being. The emergent model demonstrates that addressing personalisation of learning and well-being depends on a combination of factors rather than "just getting one factor right". This implies that there is a need for a coherent and collaborative approach for addressing the needs of students of low socioeconomic status.
