ZAMBRANO-MATAMALA, Carolina; DIAZ-MUJICA, Alejandro; PEREZ-VILLALOBOS, María V.  and  ROJAS-DIAZ, Darío. Analysis of self-regulation strategies in pedagogy students from a Chilean university. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.5, pp.223-232. ISSN 0718-5006.

The main objective of the present study was to analyze self-regulation strategies from the perspective of the Zimmerman model and from four dimensions: 1) inadequate regulatory habits, 2) environment organization, 3) information search, and 4) task organization. The population consisted of 322 first-year pedagogy undergraduate students from Chile. Data analyzes were performed using descriptive statistics, reliability, and difference of means. The results showed low scores for all dimensions of self-regulation strategies. There were statistically significant differences between students coming from municipal public high schools and students coming from subsidized private high schools for the inadequate regulation habit. This dimension was also found to be statistically different between municipal high schools and private high schools. In conclusion, the results provide empirical evidence about the social segmentation of undergraduate students coming from public high schools and show the importance of promoting self-regulation strategies.
