The statistical population of this study was all students of high school girls in the second district of Tehran in 1395.

Results: The results of regression test showed that metacognitive beliefs and self-regulation strategies have an effect on academic motivation (p <.05). Also, the results of Pearson correlation test between the components of cognitive beliefs and academic achievement showed that there is a significant positive correlation between academic achievement with components of confidence in memory and positive beliefs about negative concern and with unruliness, cognitive self-awareness and the need for inhibition of thoughts.
