Factor Validity of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) in Asynchronous Online Learning Environments (AOLE)
Cho, Moon-Heum; Summers, Jessica
Journal of Interactive Learning Research, v23 n1 p5-28 Jan 2012
The purpose of this study was to investigate the factor validity of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) in asynchronous online learning environments. In order to check the factor validity, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted with 193 cases. Using CFA, it was found that the original measurement model fit for motivation and learning strategies scales of the MSLQ was not satisfactory in asynchronous online learning environments. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was conducted to find alternative factors of the MSLQ in asynchronous online learning environments. EFA with motivation and learning strategies scales of the MSLQ revealed five and four latent factors respectively. Finally, issues and implications to improve the factor validity of the MSLQ for an asynchronous online learning environment were discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
