Abstract


The present study aimed to identify the self-regulation level among university students, and disclose the predictive ability of self-regulation in their academic achievement. The sample of the study consisted of 312 students (177 male and 135 female) chosen from the Jadara University in Jordan by the available method. To achieve the study’s objectives, a self-regulation scale prepared by Mriyan (2010) after verifying its validity and reliability indices. The results indicated that the students have a medium degree of self-regulation on the scale as a whole and the sub-fields. The results of the study also showed there were statistically significant differences (α = 0.05) in the level of self-regulation on the scale as a whole and on the two fields: determining and setting goals and self-control due to gender in favor of females. However; there were no statistically significant differences in students' grades on the two fields' self-observation and selfreaction due to gender. Finally, study results indicated two fields of self-regulation predicted the students' academic achievement: the field of determining and setting goals, and the field of self-act reaction, where the expositor variance ratio for them in the academic achievement amounted to (0.186%).
