To be successful students have to be motivated to put effort into their studies and use learning strategies and skills that support meaningful learning. (Weinstein, Husman, & Dierking, 2000)
According to the United States Department of Education, the enrollment in online classes doubled between 1995 and 1998, and the rapid growth is expected to continue (Wood, 2001).
The research seeks to better understand the impact of students' motivation and learning strategies on their performance in an online developmental mathematics course.

Method Strategies and Self-Efficacy6. Method - Participants
- 61%Female (n=54)、 39%Female (n=35)
Method Strategies and Self-Efficacy8. Discussion
→These findings provide evidence of the need for learning skills and strategies instruction to be part of online or Web-based developmental education courses.
→There appears to be a need for a learning strategies inventory designed specifically for an online learning environment.
Method Strategies and Self-Efficacy9. Implications for Practice
→The combination can help improve academic success even in online mathematics courses (Hofer, Yu, & Pintrich, 1998; Weinstein et al., 2000).
