Chan, K.W. and Leung, M.T., The Hong Kong Institute of Education, Hong Kong
A survey study was conducted with 473 students teachers of a tertiary institution in Hong Kong to examine their achievement goal orientations and study strategies. Achievement goal orientations were studied by means of 10- likert scale items adapted from the measuring instrument developed by Roedel et al., (1994). Study strategies were studied by an instrument consisting of 21 -likert scale items withdrawn from Bigg's Study Process Questionnaire (SPQ). Multivariate data analysis of the item responses was tired to identify the achievement goals and study strategies held by the students, their possible relation and the influence of demographic variables such as gender, disciplines and programs. The results were discussed in terms of socio-cultural factors and implications were drawn for teaching and learning as well as future directions of research.
