ASSESSING MOTIVATION AND LEARNING STRATEGIES USING THE MOTIVATED STRATEGIES FOR LEARNING QUESTIONNAIRE IN A FOREIGN LANGUAGE LEARNING CONTEXT
This study pinpointed the lack of, and necessity for, using standardized questionnaires for the study of learner motivation in the foreign language (L2) learning context. To compare the similarities and differences in general education and L2 learning, the researcher chose the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ; Pintrich, Smith, Garcia, & McKeachie, 1991) and investigated the scale's reliability and its correlation with L2 achievement. Results suggested that, in spite of some inherent uniqueness, L2 learning is similar to other subjects in the school environment and the MSLQ has the potential to be applied to L2-related studies.
