Approaches to learning of students in an Indonesian medical school.

Author information

  • 1Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta.


This paper reports on a study of approaches to learning of undergraduate medical students in the University of Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. The Lancaster Approaches to Studying Inventory was translated into Indonesian and the translated form pilot tested. The instrument was then completed by 90 students, 30 each in first, second and fifth year in the Faculty of Medicine. It was found that Indonesian students generally gave higher rates than previous studies have reported. Factor analysis of their responses showed strong resemblances to other groups in the factors of meaning and reproducing orientation. Differences found in Indonesian students' responses were in strategic and non-academic orientations. There were differences between the response patterns of first-, third- and fifth-year students. It is concluded that the instrument is valid for use in Indonesia.
