Self-regulated learning: key strategies and their sources in a sample of adolescent males
Effeney, G, Carroll, A & Bahr, N 2013, 'Self-regulated learning: key strategies and their sources in a sample of adolescent males', Australian Journal of Educational and Developmental Psychology, vol. 13, pp. 58-74.
This study identified the key self-regulated learning (SRL) strategies and their sources for nine school-aged adolescent males aged 15 to 17 years. The Self-Regulated Learning Interview Schedule (SRLIS) was used along with semi-structured interviews with the participants and their parents to elicit information on SRL strategies and contexts for the formation of self-regulatory habits. Early habit-forming experiences of the family home in relation to homework and study routines were found to form an important base for effective SRL. Teachers were identified as the most common source of SRL strategies with important formative experiences occurring during the first two years of high school.
