The highest score was for the skill group with a mean of 3.2 ± 0.39 and the lowest score for the group of will with a mean of 3.12 ± 0.37. The difference between the average score obtained between the skill group and the will and self-regulation groups were significant (P= 0.017 and P= 0.022 respectively).
CONCLUSION: According to the results of this study and the obtained scores by the participants which were often in the midrange of acceptable scores (1 to 5), students in most categories of study strategies and learning could be considered weak.
