This study is an investigation of the ability of self-regulated
learning (SRL) as measured by the Motivated Strategies for Learning
Questionnaires (MSLQ) to predict academic achievement among
undergraduates in Malaysia. A total of 460 second-year engineering
undergraduates from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia participated
in the study. Academic achievement was measured by the students'
grade point average. The results show that the MSLQ is a reliable
tool and SRL is a significant predictor of Malaysian undergraduates'
academic achievement. Significant relationships between SRL and
academic achievement were found, nevertheless differences in the
composition of significant predictor sub-scales are also found
between achievement groups.
