Title Investigating the determinants of academic excellence and exploring the complex nature of sustained motivation among open distance learning (ODL) students/ Nor Azizah Binti Khamis
Abstract The study aims to investigate the determinants of academic excellence and exploring the complex nature of sustained motivation among open distance learning (ODL) students. The study helps open distance learning institution and ODL students to seek opportunities for improvement in program design and study method. Based on previous literatures, it can be generalized that family support, peer support and study habit are the determinants of ODL students academic excellence. Due to high demand, Open Distance Learning is now a trend for adults to expand their critical thinking. However, Open Distance Learning is not suitable for all and drop-out rates are high among the ODL students. Sustained motivations are the critical factors that help ODL students to complete their study. Based on these ideas, theoretical framework has been proposed. A survey was conducted among the ODL students at ABC Open University, Kuala Lumpur Campus via structured questionnaire. The results indicated that family support, peer support and study habit were the determinants of academic excellence. Intrinsic goals and self-efficacy are how they sustained their motivations. The study also demonstrated that ODL students are not extrinsically motivated. Self-efficacy was found to strengthen the relationship between family supports, peer support and study habit with academic excellent.
