Sun, Z., Xie, K., & Anderman, L. (2018). The role of self-regulated learning in students’ success in flipped undergraduate math courses. Internet and Higher Education, 36(1), 41-53. 10.1016/j.iheduc.2017.09.003
Based upon the self-regulated learning theory, this study examined the relationships between academic achievement and three key self-regulatory constructs – prior domain knowledge, self-efficacy, and the use of learning strategies – in two flipped undergraduate math courses. Structural equation modeling was employed as the primary method to analyze the relationships in both the pre-class and in-class learning environments of the flipped courses. The results of the study showed that students’ self-efficacy in learning math and the use of help seeking strategies were all significantly positively related with academic achievement in both pre- and in-class learning environments. In addition, students’ self-efficacy in collaborative learning had a positive impact on their use of help seeking strategies during in-class learning. The theoretical and instructional implications are discussed.
