ABSTRACT

A body of research has shown that self-regulation and language learning strategies are important variables influencing learning. The aim of the study was to analyze the relationship between students' self-regulations and their language learning strategies. For research purposes, the correlations between self-regulations and language learning strategies and the changes according to achievement and grade level were examined. The participants comprised 860 higher education students attending various departments in a state university in Turkey. The Scale on Self-Regulation in Learning (SSRL) and Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL) was used to gather data. Descriptive statistics, one-way MANOVA and correlation statistics were used during data analyses. The findings indicated medium positive correlations between the two main constructs and further provided evidence for changes in both student self-regulations and their language learning strategies based on achievement and grade level. Conclusions are drawn and suggestions for further practice and research are made in the end.
