This study investigates the relationship between Shanghai students’ mathematics literacy and their use of computers for educational and self-regulated learning, by using the data from PISA2012 in Shanghai. According to Shanghai PISA raw data, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to explore the relationship among the three variables. The study found that the more often use the computer, the students’ mathematical literacy worse; the more students will be self- regulated learning, the better mathematical literacy. Causal link between self-regulation and learning to use computers is significant, but the coefficient is small, which is most likely caused by a large statistical sample.
