This work presents a systematic review of the Self-Regulation Strategy Inventory—Self Report (SRSI-SR). Theoretically grounded in Zimmerman’s three-phase model of self-regulated learning (SRL), the SRSI-SR provides information about learners’ use of three broad types of self-regulation strategies. Google Scholar, PsycINFO, and ProQuest were searched to identify studies referencing the SRSI-SR; 18 studies met the inclusion criteria. Studies were coded based upon: 1) Likert scale type employed, 2) type of study conducted, 3) student grade level, 4) school subject area, and 5) other constructs also examined, such as motivation and achievement. Overall, the SRSI-SR is emerging as a sound measure of SRL strategy use. Validity and reliability information, gaps in current knowledge about the measure, and future research recommendations are also discussed in more detail.
