ABSTRACT Actualmente disponemos de gran cantidad de investigaciones que ponen de manifiesto que la implicación activa del sujeto en su proceso de aprendizaje aumenta cuando se siente autocompetente. Esta implicación motivacional influye tanto en la estrategias cognitivas y metacognitivas que pone en marcha a la hora de abordar las tareas como sobre la regulación del esfuerzo y la persistencia ante situaciones difíciles. El objetivo fundamental de esta investigación es profundizar en la comprensión de cómo la imagen que el alumno tiene de sí mismo influye sobre la selección y utilización de estrategias de aprendizaje que impliquen cierto grado de significatividad. El estudio se ha realizado con una muestra de 371 alumnos con edades comprendidas entre los 9 y los 13 años. Los resultados indican, en primer lugar, que existen diferencias significativas en la selección y utilización de estrategias de aprendizaje entre alumnos con un autoconcepto positivo y negativo y, en segundo lugar, que la relación entre el autoconcepto y las estrategias de aprendizaje es de carácter recíproco.

    ABSTRACT: The academic burnout might be accompanied of inadequate strategies of coping, contributing to the accentuation of difficulties in the GPA or academic performance. Taking into account the implications of these variables in the performance and the dropout rate at university level, is relevant to investigate the relationship of the academic burnout and coping strategies with the academic performance. A correlational study with a sample of 283 students of the programs of Psychology and Physical therapy of the daytime hours of a private university of Barranquilla, who answered to the MBI-SS and to the Scale of Strategies of Coping Modified (EEC-M) was conducted. The results showed that the majority of the students were presenting low levels of academic burnout. Nevertheless, it was corroborated that the high Exhaustion and Cynicism can negatively affect academic performance; on the contrary, the Self-efficacy to studies, favored it significantly; for what it is possible to establish a negative relation between burnout and the academic performance. Inside the strategies more frequently used by the students, it was found that those that use the one of Solution of Problems in university activities tend to obtain more favorable results in their academic performance.

    ABSTRACT: In this study several factors that influence academic achievement are going to be presented. 492 students, 190 men and 302 women, with ages from 12 to 18 years old, and from the first and third year of compulsory secondary school and the first year of voluntary secondary school have participated, completing four questionnaires about IQ, motivation, learning strategies, adjustment and study habits. The academic marks selected to be related with the questionnaires we have mentioned before were the Mathematic, Spanish Language and Grammar, English language and Physical Education. We applied the structural equation analysis, by LISREL procedure, to find the best explanatory model about the academic achievement predictors. The results show that the learning strategies and the personal adjustment do not predict the academic performance as much as the intelligence, the motivation and the study habits. Therefore, it is very important to consider these variables as predictors in the works and research, of adolescents’ achievement.
