Scientists and educational psychologists research have seen on self-regulated learning as learningconstruction. Every scientists have developed their own terms and concepts in the events of explaining how self-regulation affects students learning-process. Keyprocesses in previous studies is the importance of the active choice, to be goal-oriented,and awareness is what students need to self-regulate their own learning. The purpose of this study is to examine how students use different educational learning strategies based on the principles for self-regulated learning (SRL). From the process of the previous research, different concepts and terms have been divided into three key concepts titled:Active choices and actions, Goal-orientation and goal setting, as well as consciousness and self-awareness. These three have been the theoretical ground for the study and has been supplemented with data from interviews. The interviewed are ten high-performing high school students. The implementation was based on reflective interview questions based on the measuring instrument MSLQ and the study's research questions. The result shows on one hand how grading and assessment is a major motivating factor for the choices and actions the students are doing to regulate their learning ability, but on the other hand how grades and assessment creates stress and anxiety for the students. The students indicates how aware they are of themselves when they are evaluating their own performance level and know which active choices they need to do to achieve the goals they strive for in their studies. This completed study indicates that the school isn't teaching students how to use different educational learning strategies sufficiently and that teachers do not work actively enough with students individual learning strategies.This means that traditional approaches to learning is based on repetition and how much time a student puts on their studies, and is the most common learning strategy that the students in this study choose to use as well.
