Abstract: 目的开发一个针对医学及其相关专业大 学生学习积极主动性(active learn-ingstate,ALS)的测量工具。方法多次小组讨论后识别出ALS的可测量点并编制成题(5点评分法),确定专家内容效度和复测信度 (间隔4周)后进行预试。等比(25%)分层整群抽样法从医学及其相关专业抽出515名1~3年级学生进行测试。成就动机量表用于测定结构效度。结果 ALS量表的专家内容效度指数和评分者间一致性均为0.86,复测信度较好(Spearman相关系数rho=0.46,P<0.001),与成就 动机高度相关(rho=052,P<0.001)。ALS主要由学习驱动力、学习目标、深入学习、控制学习和扎实学习5个因子构成,其内在一致性信 度系数(α)分别为0.70、0.77、0.70、0.78和0.67,总体α为0.89;贡献率分别为12.8%、11.3%、11.0%、 10.7%、102%,累计56.1%。医学及其相关专业大学生ALS得分为72.8±10.52。结论医学及其相关专业大学生ALS受多种因素影响,通 过学习行为、认知活动及特定的个性特征投射出来。此ALS量表测量性能良好,可用于定量评价大学生的ALS。 还原
Objective To develop an instrument to measure healthcare undergraduates’ active learning state (ALS). Methods The measurable aspects of ALS were identified and formulated into items (5-point scale) through group discussions among nine nursing students. After the determination of expert content validity and test-retest reliability (4-week interval), a pilot test was conducted. Via proportional (25%) stratify sampling, 515 students from various healthcare majors were sampled and tested. Achievement Motivation Scale was used to assess construct validity. Result The ALS scale is with high expert content validity (0.86), interrater agreement (0.86) and moderate test-retest reliability (r_ ho =0.46, P<0.001). It is highly correlated with Achievement Motivation Scale (r_ ho =0.52, P<0.001). ALS is mainly constituted by five factors, i.e. learning drives, learning goals, deep learning, learning control and strong learning which can explain the variance of 12.8%, 11.3%, 11.0%, 10.7%, 10.2%, respectively (The cumulated is 56.1%.). Their internal consistency coefficients (α) are 0.70, 0.77, 0.70, 0.78, 0.67, respectively (The overall α is 0.89.). The overall ALS score is 72.8±10.52 (mean ± s_d). Conclusion ALS is impacted by many factors and projects as active learning behaviors, cognitive activities and specific personality tributes. This scale has been established with good psychometric properties and could be used to quantify and estimate ALS.
