A Framework for Evaluating and Enhancing Alignment in Self-Regulated Learning Research
Dent, Amy L.; Hoyle, Rick H.
Metacognition and Learning, v10 n1 p165-179 Apr 2015
We discuss the articles of this special issue with reference to an important yet previously only implicit dimension of study quality: alignment across the theoretical and methodological decisions that collectively define an approach to self-regulated learning. Integrating and extending work by leaders in the field, we propose a framework for evaluating alignment in the way self-regulated learning research is both conducted and reported. Within this framework, the special issue articles provide a springboard for discussing methodological considerations of increasingly sophisticated research on the dynamic, contingent, and contextualized features of self-regulated learning.
