A framework for evaluating and enhancing alignment in self-regulated learning research


Journal Article

© 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York. 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.
