Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ)

The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) provides you with information about your learning strategies and motivation. The goal is to help you identify your strengths and weaknesses as a learner and articulate your learning strategies. This will support the development of your reflective skills and study skills. There are no right or wrong answers; just answer as accurately as possible.

The questionnaire consists 81 questions that are divided into 15 scales. Answer the questions on a scale from 1 to 7 (1=Not at all true of me, 4=neutral, 7=very true of me). After you have filled out the questionnaire, you can review your scores for each scale. You will also receive suggestions for developing the assessed skills.

After you have submitted the form, you will be able to save/print out your responses. The results may be later discussed, for example, during meetings with your academic tutor.
