BACKGROUND Self-determination theory defines two important dimensions of teaching style: autonomy support and structure. AIMS The purpose of the present study was to investigate the synergistic relationship of perceived teacher autonomy support and the provision of structure in the prediction of self-regulated learning. SAMPLE AND METHOD Students (N=526) completed questionnaires assessing perceived autonomy support, structure, and self-regulated learning. RESULTS First, autonomy support…

Differentiated need support by teachers: Student‐specific provision of autonomy and structure and relations with student motivation

Findings suggest that teachers differentiate in need support and the positive association between teacher perceptions of structure and students’ controlled motivation might suggest that Teachers may offer structure in controlling rather than autonomy‐supportive ways.

Can Being Autonomy-Supportive in Teaching Improve Students’ Self-Regulation and Performance?

Studies have well-documented that autonomy-supportive environment supports individuals’ psychological needs by promoting a sense of volition. With the increasing concerns of students’ well-being and

Recent discussions of autonomy have included the perspective that, as a basic human need across cultural environments, it includes not only choice but also personal endorsement of action. The present

Abstract The significant interplay between self-efficacy, autonomy support and approaches to learning in adolescent students is widely recognized. However, less is known about whether substantial

Teacher structure as a predictor of students’ perceived competence and autonomous motivation: The moderating role of differentiated instruction

A mediated moderation model posits that teacher structure has a stronger positive effect on students' autonomous motivation (and a negative effect on controlled motivation) in French class when differentiated instruction is used, and that this moderation effect is mediated by perceived competence.
