While the presence of technology-enhanced learning environments (TELEs) will only increase in higher education, this book chapter examines current literature concerning the measurement of online SRL behaviors and the application of this online SRL measurement with regard to profiling SRL behaviors in TELEs. The methodologies and issues associated with the measurement of SRL behaviors in TELEs is discussed in view of extant research. The organization of SRL behaviors into five, distinct profiles is then discussed in view of a social cognitive perspective concerning the development of SRL (e.g. Zimmerman & Schunk, 2001). The book chapter concludes with recommendations for future research concerning the presence of SRL profiles and their relationship to other metacognitive factors and academic achievement.
