Joanne P. Turingan, Yong-Chil Yang


This study investigated a cross-cultural comparison of self-regulated learning (SRL) skills between Korean and Filipino college students. Specifically, it identified and analyzed the motivational and learning strategies adopted by Korean and Filipino students. To measure their SRL skills, the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire was administered. Results of this study showed that the degree of Filipino students’ SRL skills was higher than one of Korean students. Cultural and educational contexts of the two countries were examined to identify possible factors underlying the differences between two countries’ college students in SRL skills.
