This study aimed to examine the influence of intrinsic and identified motivation on active class attitude, by mediating with self-regulated learning strategies (SRLS). A questionnaire survey was used to collect data on 133 university students. Path analysis was conducted, setting intrinsic and identified motivation as the first step, SRLS as the second step, and active class attitude as the third step. The results showed that both intrinsic and identified motivation had a positive effect on the motivational regulation strategy, which was one factor of SRLS. That strategy also showed a positive effect on active class attitude. Additionally, intrinsic motivation had a direct positive effect on active class attitude. Despite these findings, identified motivation had a direct negative effect on active class attitude. These results indicated that encouragement of a motivational regulation strategy is important for promoting an active class attitude.
