According to Dembo (2004), some factors that influence academic self-management as follows:
a. Environmental factors Environmental factor is assumed as reciprocal interaction between personal and behavioral factors. When a person is able to lead himself, the personal factor plays as regulator of conducting the behavior and set up the learning environment. Individuals are expected to understand the environmental impact during the admissions process and know how to develop the environment through the use of varied strategies.
b. Internal factors or personal factors Internal factors include beliefs and perceptions (self-efficacy, attributions, and self-talk), physiological responses (e.g., anxiety), and mood (e.g., interested or bored).
c. Behavioral factors Behavioral factors affecting academic self management include: (a) motivation (e.g. goals, preferences, level of involvement / effort and persistence), (b) learning methods (e.g. use of exercises, elaboration, and organizational strategies), (c) use of time (e.g. planning, prioritizing and scheduling tasks, start, and finish), and (d) physical and social environment (internal and external disturbance type, amount of time spent or concentrate on tasks) and the use of social resources.
Those explanations above are telling about the factor which is influenced to the self students’ management. The students have to manage their self neatly. Students need to be wise in choosing the best behavior I order to they can respect by others.
