Publisher Summary This chapter argues that students' self-regulatory competence can be enhanced through systematic interventions that are designed to teach skills and raise students' self-efficacy for learning. Self-regulation (or self-regulated learning) refers to self-generated thoughts, feelings, and actions that are planned and systematically adapted as needed to affect one's learning and motivation. Self-regulation comprises such processes as setting goals for learning, attending to and con...

This article is a theoretical and empirical analysis of the construct of collective teacher efficacy. First, a model of collective efficacy was elaborated for use in schools. Then, an operational measure of collective teacher efficacy was developed, tested, and found to have strong reliability and reasonable validity. Finally, using the instrument to examine urban elementary schools in one large midwestern district, collective teacher efficacy was positively associated with differences between s...

Publisher Summary Research on self-regulated learning (SRL) and measurement protocols used in this chapter are relatively new and inherently intertwined enterprises. Each helps to bootstrap the other. One adopts the view that a measurement protocol is an intervention in an environment, disturbing it in a fashion that causes data to be generated. Using that data and logic of causal inference, he/she infers properties and qualities of a target of measurement. Thus, measurement involves understandi...

Perhaps our most important quality as humans is our capability to self-regulate. It has provided us with an adaptive edge that enabled our ancestors to survive and even flourish when changing conditions led other species to extinction. Our regulatory skill and lack thereof is the source of our perception of personal agency that lies at the core of our sense of self. Understanding how this capability develops, its various subcomponents, and its functions has been a major thrust of social cognitiv...

Eighty-four high school girls practiced combining a series of kernel sentences into a single nonredundant sentence. The outcome goal focused on minimizing the number of words in the combined sentence, whereas process goal emphasized a 3-step method for combining kernel sentences. It was found that girls who shifted goals sequentially from process to outcome goals surpassed classmates who adhered to only process goals who, in turn, exceeded classmates using only outcome goals in posttest writing ...

The purpose of this article is to examine the contribution made by the self-efficacy component of Bandura’s (1986) social cognitive theory to the study of self-regulation and motivation in academic settings. The difference between self-efficacy beliefs and other expectancy constructs is first explained, followed by a brief overview of problems in self-efficacy research. Findings on the relationship between self-efficacy, motivation constructs, and academic performances are then summarized. These...

Two studies investigated how goals and self-evaluation affect motivation and achievement outcomes. In both studies, fourth-grade students received instruction and practice on fractions over sessions. Students worked under conditions involving either a goal of learning how to solve problems (learning goal) or a goal of merely solving them (performance goal). In Study 1, half of the students in each goal condition evaluated their problem-solving capabilities. The learning goal with or without self...

The aim of this review is to identify features of study skills interventions that are likely to lead to success. Via a meta-analysis we examine 51 studies in which interventions aimed to enhance student learning by improving student use of either one or a combination of learning or study skills. Such interventions typically focused on task-related skills, self-management of learning, or affective components such as motivation and self-concept. Using the SOLO model (Biggs & Collis, 1982), we cate...

This is a review of intervention studies in which students have been taught to generate questions as a means of improving their comprehension. Overall, teaching students the cognitive strategy of generating questions about the material they had read resulted in gains in comprehension, as measured by tests given at the end of the intervention. All tests were based on new material. The overall median effect size was 0.36 (64th percentile) when standardized tests were used and 0.86 (81st percentile...

The article is devoted to the construction of features aimed for solving the problem of identifying students in a risk group. Early identification of such students will allow the university leadership to take necessary actions. This makes it possible to better retain the student population. Feature Engineering techniques were used to design these features. All stages of data preparation are briefly considered: data sampling, data preprocessing and data transformation. Scaling and aggregation tec...

The article explores students' academic progress and perceptions regarding the didactic potential of cloud-based Google Apps and traditional university educational web-portal for language for specific purposes learning. The paper starts with literature review, provides the data of pilot training, surveys and correlational study related to students' achievements when learning in the cloud with Google Apps, on the one hand and when using a university educational web-portal, on the other. The paper...

This chapter introduces how APEC Cyber Academy, an international networked learning environment designed for K-12 students, can foster global collaboration through the integration of sound pedagogy and human-computer interaction (HCI). Pedagogical principles that encourage project-based learning, knowledge construction, collaborative learning, community building, and critical thinking are incorporated into the design of this human-computer interface. Furthermore, HCI is enriched by 3D virtual re...
