Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the factor validity of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) in asynchronous online learning environments (AOLE). In order to check the factor validity, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted with 193 cases. Using CFA, it was found that the original measurement model fit for motivation and learning strategies scales of the MSLQ was not satisfactory in AOLE. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was conducted to find alternative factors of the MSLQ in AOLE. EFA with motivation and learning strategies scales of the MSLQ revealed five and four latent factors respectively. Finally, issues and implications to improve the factor validity of the MSLQ for AOLE were discussed.
