- To investigate the self-determined motivation of non-English majors, 662 sophomores were measured using the adapted LLOS-IEA. The results prove the generalizability of a self-determination continuum in the Chinese context and indicate that compared with the students from the local college, students from the key university had a significantly higher degree of self-determination towards English study. Some pedagogical implications have been provided on how to improve students’ self-determined motivation.
