Barnard-Brak, Lucy; Lan, William Y.; Paton, Valerie Osland – International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning, 2010
Individuals who are self-regulated in their learning appear to achieve more positive academic outcomes than individuals who do not exhibit self-regulated learning behaviors. We suggest that distinct profiles of self-regulated learning behaviors exist across learners. In turn, these profiles appear to be associated with significantly different…

Barnard, Lucy; Lan, William Y.; To, Yen M.; Paton, Valerie Osland; Lai, Shu-Ling – Internet and Higher Education, 2009
In developing the Online Self-regulated Learning Questionnaire (OSLQ) to address the need for an instrument measuring self-regulation in the online learning environment, this study provides evidence toward the reliability and validity of the instrument. Data were collected from two samples of students. The first sample of students took coursework…

Barnard, Lucy; Stevens, Tara; Siwatu, Kamau O.; Lan, William Y. – Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, 2007
Previous research has indicated that university faculty members' attitudes towards students with disabilities varies depending on specific background qualities of those faculty, including gender, type of field (soft or hard science), and type of study (pure or applied). We examined epistemological beliefs as a possible mediator between faculty…

Lan, William Y. – Journal of Experimental Education, 1996
Results with 72 graduate students in statistics assigned to self-monitoring, instructor-monitoring, and control groups indicated that the self-monitoring group performed better on course tests, used more self-regulated learning strategies, and developed better knowledge representation of the course content than the other two groups.

Lan, William Y.; Morgan, Jake – Journal of Experimental Education, 2003
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of retroactive and focused self-monitoring, actualized by videotaping, on children's theater performance. In Experiment 1, 20 students in a theater performance program were randomly assigned to either a control or a self-monitoring condition, and their weekly rehearsals were videotaped. Only…

Lan, William Y.; Repman, Judi – Journal of Experimental Education, 1995
Responses of 138 third and fourth graders to failures and successes in mathematics computation were studied in 4 experimental conditions varied by social learning context and modeling. The collaborative learning context increased student persistence after failure and dynamism after success, and modeling increased persistence and dynamism in an…

Lan, William Y.; And Others – Journal of Experimental Education, 1993
Sixty-nine graduate students in a statistics class participated in this study of the effects of self-monitoring on learning and attitudes toward learning. Self-monitoring subjects recorded learning activities and rated their problem-solving efficacy. As predicted, the self-monitoring group performed better than did the instructor-monitoring and…
