Abstract: This qualitative study explored how groups with high or low self-regulation regulated their collaborative behaviors. We used purposeful sampling to select two groups of students in an online course with the highest and lowest mean self-regulation scores, based on survey data. We inductively analyzed online discussion posts and identified three themes that described the groups’ processes for externalizing and internalizing understanding: level of engagement with content, approach to seeking and providing help, and openness to disagreement and problem-solving. The group with the highest mean self-regulation scores elaborated upon course concepts, helped one another understand and apply ideas, and integrated viewpoints to carry out course activities. The group with the lowest scores wrote about surface-level features, exchanged help in a brief and depersonalized manner, and moved quickly to consensus without evaluating alternative perspectives. These patterns illustrated marked differences in the development of socially shared regulation. \
