AbstractThe principal aim of this research is to compare the patterns of adaptive learning among secondary school students in Spain and Mexico. Participants were 209 students: 105 from Spain and 104 from Mexico. The Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scales -individual patterns and classroom goal structure- (MIDGLEY ET AL., 2000) were used. Statistical "t" test was utilized to find out differences based on sex, type of school (public and private) and academic year (first and last years of secondary) in the mexican and spanish students.The results suggest that there are not significant differences in the patterns of adaptive learning of spanish and mexican students based on sex or school type. However, there are differences in these patterns based on the academic year: mexicans keep them constant while the spaniards modify them. These and other results are discussed in detail in the document.
