Homophily among Peer Groups Members' Perceived Self-Regulated Learning

The present study is one of the first examining whether peer group members hold similar levels of self-regulated learning. The study specifically addresses the potential homophily among group members' regulative abilities (metacognition, environment regulation, effort regulation, peer learning, and help seeking) and whether group members' regulative abilities predict affiliates' academic performance. The study surveyed 9th-grade students from a Midwestern high school about their regulative abilities for mathematics. Results suggest that peer groups members' effort regulation is similar among peer affiliates but not other regulative abilities. In addition, peer group members' regulative abilities do not predict each others' academic performance. (Contains 3 tables.)
