|Background, Aims and Framework|
|Metacognitive and motivational regulation processes during self-regulated learning by experimenting
The overall goal of this project is to investigate the role of motivation regulation in self-regulated learning by experimenting. The first step lies in the development and evaluation of a new test for assessing students‘ knowledge about strategies for motivation regulation. Based on the diagnosis of knowledge about strategies for motivation regulation it is the goal of this project to investigate experimentally, whether self-regulation of motivation and thereby the learning process and learning outcome can be activated and supported by motivation regulation prompts.
|Methods and Analysis|
In order to assess students’ knowledge about motivation regulation strategies, a new test is developed with a test format analogous to the Würzburger reading strategy knowledge test (Würzburger Lesestrategie-Wissenstest [WLST] 7-12, Schlagmüller & Schneider, 2007). The format of the test intends to assess students‘ conditional strategy knowledge by asking for the situation specific rating of the usefulness of different strategies in a sketched learning situation. The content of the test refers to students’ typical motivational problems and motivation regulation strategies (cf. Wolters, 1998, 1999, 2003).
