Background: ‘E-portfolio’ is a collection of digital and electronic documents showing the students’ progress and academic achievement in a course or lesson. Objective: The present research aims to study the effect of using e-portfolios on self-regulation learning strategies adopted by the students. Method: The research method was that of quasi-experimental with a pretest-posttest control group design. The statistical population included all the students of the Faculty of Education and Psychology of Allameh Tabataba’i University in the second semester of 2012-2013. Using convenience sampling method, 2 MA classes were selected as the sample population. Each class included 18 students randomly divided to experimental and control groups. The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire by Pintrich and De Groot (MSLQ) (1990) was used to measure the subjects’ self-regulated learning strategies. At the beginning of the semester, both groups were taken a pretest in the same circumstance. Then, the experimental group was exposed to the independent variable for one semester. At the end of the semester, a posttest was applied on both groups to examine the changes. An analysis of covariance was used to analyze the collected data. Results: The results showed that the self-regulation learning strategies of the experimental group had increased significantly compared to that of the control group. Conclusion: Therefore, it can be concluded that an e-portfolio is an instrument for teaching, learning, and assessment by which learners become motivated to have more activity and, consequently, reach more achievements in learning and acquiring the related skills.
