This study investigated how students' level of motivation and use of specific cognitive and self-regulatory strategies changed over time, and how these motivational and cognitive components in turn predicted students' course performance in chemistry. Participants were 458 students enrolled in introductory college chemistry classes. Participants' motivation and strategy use were assessed at three time points over the course of one semester using self-report instruments. Results showed an overall… 
ACHIEVEMENT OF UNIVERSITY STUDENTS WITH A VIEW TO DOMAIN , GENDER AND YEAR OF STUDY 1

Abstract Research on the role of learning strategies and self-efficacy for mathematics performance in higher education is sparse, especially if cognitive and metacognitive strategies are considered.
Affective and motivational factors of learning in online mathematics courses
TLDR
Investigation of what factors would be related to students' achievement in mathematics courses offered at a virtual high school found that motivation accounted for approximately 13% of the variance in student achievement and self-efficacy was the significant individual predictor of student achievement.
