The paper aims to explore the relationship between students' self-regulation ability and their learning performance. In this study, self-regulation ability is conceptualized by four dimensions: learning motivation, goal setting, action control and learning strategies. 6,524 students from 20 aided secondary schools in Hong Kong participated in the questionnaire survey. Factor analysis and reliability test were used to confirm the constructed validity and the reliability of the survey instrument. Multiple regression analysis was applied to explore the relationship among variables. The results showed that students' learning motivation, goal setting, action control and learning strategies played a significant role in their learning performance.
