There is no doubt that one of the most important educational management and planning tasks of schools is to encourage youth to participate and cooperate in all matters. They can engage students in various school affairs by developing appropriate educational planning. This can help youth feel useful and get away from isolation and boredom as one example of fulfilling a happy and joyful life. The present study was aimed at investigating the relationship between academic self-regulation and metacognition with students’ academic achievement.


This was an applied research and followed a descriptive correlational method in terms of data collection. The statistical population included all students in Gilan-e-Gharb. 110 of them were selected through multi-stage cluster sampling method to participate in the study. To collect data, the self-regulatory questionnaire and Connell Ryan (1989) and O’Neill and Abedi metacognition questionnaire were used.


The results showed a significant relationship between self-regulation and its dimensions including internal self-regulation, external self-regulation, cognitive self-regulation and internal motivation with student’s academic achievement. In addition, there was a significant relationship between metacognition and components of innovation and collaboration with students' academic achievement and the components of innovation and collaboration could predict students' academic achievement (P <0.05).


Teachers can play an effective role in students’ academic achievement by creating a climate of collaboration and assistance among students in addition to creating a positive attitude toward the environment.
