Assessing the Approaches to Learning of Twinning Programme Students in Malaysia
AbstractThe study set out to examine the psychometric properties of the scores obtained on the modified 20-item Revised Two Factor Study Process Questionnaire (R-SPQ-2F). The study also investigated the relationship between scores on the R-SPQ-2F and studentsâ€™ learning-related outcomes. In addition, it also examined for any relationships among studentâ€™s background variables of gender, choice of academic discipline, age, English language competency, approaches to learning, and learning-related outcomes. Data based on responses of 368 Malaysian students undertaking the twinning mode of study showed the modified R-SPQ-2F to be reliable and factorially valid. The findings also found deep approaches to learning were positively related to studentsâ€™ learning-related outcomes, while surface approaches to learning were negatively associated. Studentsâ€™ background characteristics such as choice of academic discipline and English language competency, and approaches to learning were good predictors of studentsâ€™ learning-related outcomes.
