Selfregulated learning strategies were taught in introductory psychology courses. Students who used the strategies frequently (N=9) and who did not use them (N=10) were interviewed about factors that influenced their use of strategies. Two models were developed: a) a model of contextual and motivational factors influencing study habits, and b) a model of the decision process for acquiring learning strategies. Salient factors influencing study efforts and use of strategies included implicit theories of intelligence, goals in college, interest in class, and valuing practice.
