Description/Abstract

This study was designed to see if Hong Kong Chinese students predisposed to a surface or deep approach to learning react differently when moving progressively from one stage to the next stage in their undergraduate occupational therapy curriculum. In this study, the internal consistency reliability estimates alpha for SPQ (Study Process Questionnaire (Biggs, 1987c)) scales for samples of Hong Kong, Australian and British students were compared. The alpha estimates varied from 0.56 to 0.75 which compares favourably with other studies reported in Hong Kong, Australia and U.K. The results of this study did not confirm the anecdotal claims that rote learning was far more wide spread among Hong Kong tertiary students than their counterparts in other countries and ruled out the potential for misunderstandings.
