Introduction. This Symposium presents empirical evidence regarding the continuum of the construct Self-Regulation/ Non-Regulation/Personal Dysregulation (SR-NR-DR) and External-Regulation/ Non External Regulation / Contextual Dysregulation (ER-ENR-EDR), established by the SR vs ER Theory (de la Fuente, 2017, 2021). Its objective is to show the predictive and interdependent relationships with respect to educational variables of molecular and molar order analyzed.

Method. Four studies were carried out, which are presented in four Communications. A total of 650 university students completed validated inventories, in online format, during the 2018-2021 academic years. From an ex post-facto design, linear predictive analyzes and inferential analyzes ANOVAs and MANOVAs were performed.

Results. Communication 1 shows the predictive and inferential effects of the different levels of regulation with respect to the level of executive dysfunction and regulatory fatigue. Communication 2 shows the same effects regarding the level of academic stress of the students. In communication 3 regarding behaviors of academic confidence and procrastination. In communication 4 in relation to behaviors of satisfaction with the teaching-learning process and performance.

Discussion. The results allow us to infer that the theoretical assumptions of the SR vs SR Theory, applied to the Psychoeducational field, serve to discriminate the levels of variability of the dependent variables that are to be explained. Therefore, they lend empirical support to a combined conception of personal and contextual regulatory factors, in the psychoeducational field.
