Abstract

The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ; Pintrich & DeGroot,1990) is one of the most used instruments to assess self-regulated learning. In Italy, the psychometric properties of the MSLQ have not been investigated, although its frequent use. The aim of this research was to investigate MSLQ psychometric properties in an Italian high school sample (N=700; 54.1% males; Mage=14.85 years, S.D.age=0.87). Firstly, an exploratory factor analysis was conducted, resulting in a 25-item 5-factor solution. Secondly, a confirmatory factor analysis was performed to study the replicability of the factor structure obtained by EFA, providing good fit indices (c2=751.924, df=265, p=0.000; CFI=0.923, RMSEA=0.051). Alpha coefficient were computed, showing a good internal consistency. Finally, a multigroup confirmative analyses proved the gender invariance of the instrument. The final Italian version of MSLQ comprised 25 items and showed a 5-factor solution: Self-Efficacy (8 items), Intrinsic Value (5 items), Learning Strategies (6 items), Test Anxiety (3 items) and Self-Regulation (3 items). The five original factors identified by Pintrich & DeGrooth (1990) are still present in the Italian version, providing the opportunity to assess the same constructs throughout a shorter and easier instrument. Our 25-item Italian version of MSLQ represents a useful, reliable, and valid measure to assess high school student motivation and the main factors underlying the learning processes.
