Thomas, Valérie; De Backer, Free; Peeters, Jeltsen; Lombaerts, Koen – Learning Environments Research, 2019
Both parental involvement and self-regulated learning are important predictors of students' study success. However, previous research on self-regulated learning has focused instead on the school environment and has not focused on the home situation. In particular, investigations into the role of parents in self-regulated learning when children…
