Academic selfñ regulation was one of the fundamental issues in Pedagogical and Educational system and it seemed that it had a relation to meta-cognition. This important educational issue has been studied from both theoretical and applied perspectives. The aim of this study was to determine the role of cognitive elements in academic self- regulation. In this correlation, three hundred and eighteen boys of second degree of high school in the 6th educational borough of Tehran by cluster sampling method were chosen. They were asked to fill in the following questionnaires: Wells & Cartwright ñ Hatton metacognitive beliefs questionnaire (2004), O'nell & Abedi metacognitive State questionnaire (1996) and Ryan & Conell academic Self-Regulation questionnaire (1989). Multiple regression analysis and Pearsons correlation coefficiency were applied on the data. Statistical analyses presented a positive correlation between metacognitive state and academic self- regulation. On the other hand, there was a negative association between meta-cognitive believes and academic self- regulation. Furthermore, analyses showed that %26 variance of academic self- regulation can be predicted by three metacognitive components: planning, uncontrollability and the need to control. Based on the finding of this study, metacognitive beliefs and metacognitive state are both associated with academic self- regulation, but in a different way.Thus, acquiring para- cognitive elements can be influential in improving the academic self- regulation of students. None the less, it is required that the findings of this research be considered when the selection and setting of the educational context are done.
