Post secondary distance/online education institutions continually struggle with poor student retention, course completion, and course re-enrollment. An underlying factor in student persistence and success in distance learning is student self regulation. This paper presents preliminary data resulting from a study of the self regulation skills of post secondary distance learners participating in distance courses online. The self regulation skills examined include: time management and organization, self management, learning attitude, test performance, note taking strategies, reading strategies, writing strategies, and memory strategies.
