Ya TUO, Zeng-Yan XIA


The purpose of the paper is to probe into autonomous learning awareness and behavior amongst ethnic preparatory undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as the factors that may exert influence on learner autonomy. A questionnaire survey is conducted in experimental classes and 822 valid papers are recovered. The statistics collected are processed by SPSS for Windows 13.0. The results show that the longer the education experience is, the higher the level of autonomous learning awareness and behavior is. Compared with urban and county students, rural students and pastoral students show higher level of learner autonomy. Autonomous learning ability of ethnic preparatory students is in positive correlation with their academic achievement.
