Using latent profile analysis, we explored the occurrence of different secondary school learner profiles depending on their various combinations of cognitive and metacognitive learning strategy use, as well as their differences in perceived autonomy support, intrinsic motivation, and gender. Data were collected from 576 ninth grade students in Uganda using self-report questionnaires. Four learner profiles were identified: competent strategy user, struggling user, surface-level learner, and deep-level learner profiles. Gender differences were noted in students’ use of elaboration and organization strategies to learn Physics, in favor of girls. In terms of profile memberships, significant differences in gender, intrinsic motivation and perceived autonomy support were also noted. Girls were 2.4–2.7 times more likely than boys to be members of the competent strategy user and surface-level learner profiles. Additionally, higher levels of intrinsic motivation predicted an increased likelihood membership into the deep-level learner profile, while higher levels of perceived teacher autonomy predicted an increased likelihood membership into the competent strategy user profile as compared to other profiles. Further, implications of the findings were discussed.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Muwonge, Charles Magoba</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/58761/1/Kwarikunda_2-1tg73z6bubkcc6.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Muwonge, Charles Magoba</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:creator>Schiefele, Ulrich</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2022-12</dcterms:issued> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/58761"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/58761/1/Kwarikunda_2-1tg73z6bubkcc6.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>Kwarikunda, Diana</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Kwarikunda, Diana</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-10-07T07:19:43Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Schiefele, Ulrich</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Profiles of learners based on their cognitive and metacognitive learning strategy use : occurrence and relations with gender, intrinsic motivation, and perceived autonomy support</dcterms:title> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
