MINNA IKäVALKO

Early Stage Researcher

My doctoral dissertation research aims to investigate comprehensive school students' perceptions of their own abilities to regulate and assess behaviors, emotions and thinking (i.e., sources of self-efficacy in self-regulation), but also perceptions of one's control, skills and self-knowledge (i.e., behavioral and emotional strengths). Moreover, I aim to investigate whether background of student (e.g., age, need for pedagogical support) influences on sources of self-efficacy in self-regulation, and behavioral and emotional strengths. From the methods perspective, I use both cross sectional and longitudinal data. Altogether, I strive to learn more about the content, interconnectedness of the main concepts in my research, and quantitative methods to gain novel understanding about what influences on students’ self-perceptions.
