Abstract

TOKAN, Moses Kopong  and  IMAKULATA, Mbing Maria. The effect of motivation and learning behaviour on student achievement. S. Afr. j. educ. [online]. 2019, vol.39, n.1, pp.1-8. ISSN 2076-3433.  http://dx.doi.org/10.15700/saje.v39n1a1510.

The purpose of this study is to determine the direct effect of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation on learning behaviour; the direct effect of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and learning behavioural on learning achievement; the indirect effect of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation from learned behaviour to learning achievement; and the influence of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and learning behaviour on the learning achievement of the biology education department students of FKIP Undana. This is a correlation study, consisting of three independent variables and one dependent variable. Data collection was done by a questionnaire and a document of learning achievement. Data were analysed descriptively and inferentially with path analysis. The results show that intrinsic motivation has a direct effect on learning behaviour, and that both directly affect learning achievement; intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and learning behaviour jointly affect the learning achievement of the students of the biology education department.

Keywords : learning achievement; learning behaviour; motivation.
