The Differential Impact of Motivation on the Self-Regulated Strategy Use of High- and Low-Achieving College Students.
VanZile-Tamsen, Carol; Livingston, Jennifer A.
Journal of College Student Development, v40 n1 p54-60 Jan-Feb 1999
Low-achieving college students (N=94) evidenced less use of self-regulating strategies and a stronger relationship of self-regulated strategy use to positive motivational orientation than high-achieving students (N=49). Samples were predominantly white and female. Encouraging the use of these strategies may improve low achievers' academic performance. (Author/EMK)
