This study investigated the relationship between secondary school environment and self-efficacy for self-regulated learning. Undergraduate students completed a demographic survey, which gathered information regarding their secondary schools, and a Self-Efficacy for Self-Regulated Learning Scale. The participants were categorized into groups based on the school they attended: small, medium, or large public schools, parochial schools, or home schools. The data suggest that participants from home schools have significantly more self-efficacy for self-regulated learning than do those from large public schools.
