# Intrinsic motivation and its association with cognitive, actitudinal and previous knowledge processes in engineering students

@article{Silva2018IntrinsicMA, title={Intrinsic motivation and its association with cognitive, actitudinal and previous knowledge processes in engineering students}, author={Waldyr Fong Silva and Remedios Pitre Redondo and Meredith Jim{\'e}nez Cardenas}, journal={Contemporary engineering sciences}, year={2018}, volume={11}, pages={129-138} }

The present research allowed to make a study of the relationship between the intrinsic motivation and cognitive, attitudinal and previous knowledge processes in engineering students of the University of Cartagena. The sample was made up of nine hundred sixty (960) students between 2014 and 2016. The instrument for collecting the information was the Self-Regulation Inventory for Learning (SRLI) designed by Lindner, Harris and Gordon (1993). The relationship study was advanced by crossing the… Expand
