PINTO, Joana Carneiro; FARIA, Liliana  y  PINTO, Helena Rebelo. Self-regulated learning: an exploratory study in portuguese higher education. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2016, n.43, pp. 01-12. ISSN 1414-6975.

This study assesses psychometric properties of the Self-Regulation Learning Questionnaire (SRLQ; Williams & Deci, 1996), and analyzes differences in Portuguese higher education students. 171 adults (147, 86.0 % women) participated, with a mean age of 24.70 years (Min-Max: 17-53, SD = 8.56), to which the SRLQ was administered, consisting of 12 items that assess the degree of participation in the higher education course, and the possible reasons for this involvement, according to autonomous vs controlled regulation. The exploratory factor analysis suggests the influence of two factors, which explain 50% of the items total variance. There were statistically significant differences by sex in the controlled regulation, and by age in the autonomous regulation and controlled regulation. There were no differences considering academic average, academic satisfaction or satisfaction with life in general. Implications are drawn for the advancement of this research area.
