ESel – Effectiveness of Self-Regulation Training

We analyze the effectiveness of self-regulation training by means of meta-analysis and systematic review. The focus of the meta-analyses is on different training characteristics (e.g., use of learning diaries) and on diverse target groups (e.g., learners with ADHD).

Project Description

We are currently conducting meta-analyses about the following topics: (1) effectiveness of self-regulation training for learners with ADHD, (2) effectiveness of instructional designs for self-regulation training, (3) effectiveness of learning diaries to foster self-regulation, (4) effectiveness of self-regulation training for learners with learning disorder.

Project Objectives

The project aims at identifying characteristics of effective self-regulation training for diverse target groups. The meta-analyses focus on learners with deficits in self-regulation. We investigate instructional designs that make self-regulation training particularly effective in order to derive implications for the promotion of self-regulation and to identify research gaps.
