Cross-Cultural Motivation & Self-Regulation
	Srilata Bhattacharyya, Adelphi University, Garden City, NY 11530. 


To find out whether motivational orientation and self-regulatory strategies 
to learn have a cross-cultural significance, this study used the MSLQ scale 
to investigate 143 pre-service teachers from India and 200 pre-service teachers 
from the US.  It studied the relationship and difference between motivation and 
self-regulatory strategies in academic learning across countries, and the 
contribution of each to the prediction of achievement. Regression indicated 
that intrinsic goal orientation, self-efficacy, and rehearsal predicted academic 
achievement in US, while self-efficacy and peer learning predicted academic 
achievement in India.
