Self-regulation is the ability to alter and regulate our emotional and behavioral responses. School is a highly stimulating place, which can be both beneficial and difficult for learning. Self-regulation skills help students control their actions and reactions so they can engage positively in classroom activities.

Main Idea

Self-regulation skills allow students to align their responses and behaviors with standards, such as social expectations, values, and ideals, to support the achievement of long-term goals. This type of self-discipline is one of the strongest predictors of academic outcomes in adolescents who typically face greater expectations for academic success and more intense, often self-directed, instruction types than in elementary school.

Self-regulation also includes emotional regulation, which is discussed in the Emotion factor.
