Description
  • Abstract

    The study investigated the validity and reliability of the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) for minority students enrolled in STEM gate-keeping courses at a historically black college/university (HBCU). The MSLQ survey data were collected on undergraduate students enrolled in STEM gate-keeping courses (chemistry, mathematics, and physics) during Fall Semester 2014 at an HBCU in the mid-Atlantic southern region of the United States. The HBCU Sample (N=258) was largely female (67.1%) and African American (74.8%) with a mean age of 24 years.




  • Technical Information

    Response Rates: The response rate was approximately 65% of 488 for a total of 316 completing the survey. Fifty-eight cases had various missing item data and were removed. The final sample size was 258 with no missing MSLQ item data.
  • Technical Information

    Presence of Common Scales: The full 81-item MSLQ was used for this research.ll items use a 7-point rating scale (1= not at all true of me, to 7= very true of me).

Sampling
The MSLQ survey data were collected from undergraduate students in sections of chemistry, mathematics, and physics classes. Five (5) sections were General Chemistry I. Nine (9) mathematics sections were College Algebra & Trigonometry I (6), Pre-Calculus (1), and Calculus (2). Four (4) physics sections were algebra-based General Physics I (3) and calculus-based General Physics for Scientist & Engineers I (1).
