In the Social Cognitive Theory, a kind of learning called Self-Regulated Learning, has considered the learning both of training and educational dimensions; and in this method, learners will have personal control on the training; therefore, it will leave learners with speed and high accuracy in learning, training issues such as higher self-reliance, higher self-efficiency and responsibility (Zimmerman, 1990).
Recent research findings attest to the importance and efficacy of programs promoting self-regulated learning strategies at improving students' academic achievement (Dignath, Buettner, & Langfeldt, 2008; Rosario, Gonzalez-Pienda et al., 2010).
The primary purpose of the study was to develop and gather initial psychometric information regarding the Academic Self-Regulation Scale (ASRS), a measure of students' use of abilities and strategies of self-regulated learning.
