Differences between High and Low Academic Achieving University Students in Learning and Study Strategies: A Further Investigation
Yip, Michael C. W.
Educational Research and Evaluation, v15 n6 p561-570 Dec 2009
Following up on the general framework of the research study of Yip (2007), this article sets out a similar research question, investigating the differences between high and low academic achieving Hong Kong university students based on their different learning and study strategies. In this study, we recruited 100 university students who pursued their degrees using the distance-learning mode to participate by completing a revised Chinese version of the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI; Weinstein, Zimmermann, & Palmer, 1988). Results further confirmed that there were important differences between the different study strategies of university students with high academic achievement and those with low academic achievement, even in a distance-learning context. Finally, we observed that two components within the model of strategic learning (Weinstein, Husman, & Dierking, 2000)--"will" and "self-regulation" components--were even more important in differentiating high academic achieving students from low academic achieving students than the other relevant studies.
