PAULINO, Paula; SA, Isabel  and  SILVA, Adelina Lopes da. Self-Regulation of Motivation: Beliefs and Strategies of Students between 7th to 9th Grade. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.3, pp.574-582. ISSN 0102-7972.

Motivation is a key element regarding learning and school success. Self-regulation of motivation (SRM) is identified as a fundamental aspect of self-regulated learning. The SRM process includes metamotivational knowledge and regulation of motivation strategies. In this study, the Self-Regulation of Motivation in Learning Scale (SRMS) was applied to 316 students from 7th to 9th grades. Results demonstrate that self-efficacy expectations, task value, and achievement goals are good predictors for the use of SRM strategies. Gender and grade differences were found in the use of strategies and motivational beliefs.

Keywords : Self-regulation of motivation adolescents; self-efficacy; achievement goals; task value.
