This study assessed the effect on Learner Autonomy Profile V3.0 (LAP) scores of a five-week coaching intervention for pre-diploma students at one university in Malaysia. A pre-test, post-test, experimental design was used.
The results reveal significant gains at the .05 level in post-test over pre-test scores on 8 of 22 components and 2 of 4 constructs of the LAP among those who were coached, and no significant differences among those who were not coached.
Positive and statistically significant differences were also found in pre-test and post-test of the Academic Performance scores of the both the Low LAP Coached group and the Random LAP Not Coached group. These findings indicate that all the students who have gone through the pre-commerce program have benefitted academically.
The outcome of this study suggests the LAP may be a useful diagnostic tool for identifying areas for coaching interventions that can positively impact students’ behavioral intentions to learn.
On a larger scale, the outcome of this study also points to the possibility that the LAP and learner autonomy coaching may be useful tools in other contexts where enhancement of learner autonomy may be useful to individuals and organizations.NG SIEW FOEN

World first experiments on sensor that may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles
The new sensor - capable of detecting vibrations of living cells - may revolutionise everything from medical devices to unmanned vehicles.
Dead and alive at the same time? Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics have implemented Erwin Schrödinger’s paradoxical gedanken experiment employing an entangled atom-light state.
In 1935 Erwin Schrödinger formulated a thought experiment designed to capture the paradoxical nature of quantum physics. The crucial element of this gedanken...
Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
