The Interrelationship between Student Learning Experience and Study Behaviour
Ning, Hoi Kwan; Downing, Kevin
Higher Education Research and Development, v30 n6 p765-778 2011
This study examined the interrelationship between student learning experiences and study behaviour in explaining academic achievement. The participants were 541 final year students from a university in Hong Kong. Students' learning experiences and study behaviour were measured using the Course Experience Questionnaire and the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory. Structural equation modelling demonstrated that different learning experience factors have differential influences on student study behaviour. Students' perception of teaching quality and generic skills development were found to be most influential in terms of motivation and attitude towards study, which were most predictive of academic performance. The implications for curriculum design and instructional practice on university student learning are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
