Abstract:

A considerable number of studies have been published providing data in support of the hypothesis of a relationship between pupils? self-image and the selection and/or use of learning strategies. The main objective of the present work was to examine this hypothesis by exploring the relationship between high scores in self-esteem and the selection and/or use of different learning strategies. The study was carried out with 324 secondary-school pupils aged 14 to 16. The results obtained indicate no significant relationship between high scores in self-esteem and the use and/or selection of learning strategies, except in the Response Planning strategy, whose use correlates with high scores in the Family, Academic and Body subscales of the Self-esteem Questionnaire applied.

Key words:
