The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the learning strategies and achievement goal orientations of high school students. The sample of the study consists of 642 students selected by cluster sampling method. The data were collected with Learning Strategies Scale and Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scale (PALS). Descriptive statistics, independent samples t-test, one-way ANOVA and Pearson correlation analysis were used to analyze the data. As a result, it was determined that the learning strategies that students used most were affective strategies and rehearsal strategies, and the least used strategies were organizational strategies. While examining students' goal orientations it is concluded that they are more mastery goal oriented than performance goal orientation. In addition, a moderately significant relationship was found between mastery goal orientation and learning strategies, while a low level significant relationship was found between performance goal orientation and learning strategies.
Key words: Learning strategies, achievement goal orientation, mastery goal orientation, performance goal orientation
