Applicazione di strumenti per l’autovalutazione di strategie di apprendimento e prospettiva temporale in ambito universitario

Massimo Margottini

Abstract


The research shows the outcomes of the administering of two surveys to 500 university students: QSA (Questionario sulle Strategie di Apprendimento; Pellerey, 1996) and ZTPI (Zimbardo Time Perspective Inventory; Zimbardo & Boyd, 2008). The profiles released by the questionnaires stimulate self-reflection and self-assessment on strategic skills to direct oneself both at studying at working. The aim of the research is to verify the relationship between self-regulation skills, balanced time orientation and academic success. During the activities, some issues emerged with the return of the students’ ZTPI profiles. In particular, some problems have been highlighted from measuring against the «ideal time perspective» (Zimbardo & Boyd, 1999) and the «Present Hedonistic» scale. However, the data analysis confirmed the positive correlations between future orientation, volition, self-regulation, internal locus of control, good perception of competence, and academic success; the «Present Fatalistic» and the «Past Negative» scales are negatively correlated with academic success.
