Developmental Principles of Self-Regulation
	David J. Atencio, University of New Mexico


The concept of self-regulated learning, as built upon a capacity 
for self-regulation, is examined in this paper.  Self-regulatory 
capacity is understood as a developmental outcome.  Four 
developmental principles that account for the development of 
self-regulatory capacity are presented. Discussion is provided 
on how each of these developmental principles structures the 
emergence self-regulation in development and the nature of 
self-regulated learning.
