The aim of this study was twofold: first, to examine the relationship between use of self-regulation strategies and academic performance; and second, to analyze gender differences in use of self-regulation strategies. For the specified purposes, 1794 senior pre-service science teachers (876 males, 905 females, and 13 no response) participated in the study. Results showed that GPA was significantly but not strongly associated with task value, metacognitive self-regulation, effort regulation, peer learning, mastery approach, performance approach, and mastery avoidance. It was also found that pre-service science teachers' scores of task value, metacognitive self-regulation, effort regulation, mastery approach, and mastery avoidance differ in terms of their gender.
