Research on self-regulated learning has taken main two paths: self-regulated learning as aptitudes and more recently, selfregulated learning as events. This paper proposes the use of the Fuzzy miner process mining technique to examine the relationship between students' self-reported aptitudes (i.e., achievement goal orientation and approaches to learning) and strategies followed in self-regulated learning. A pilot study is conducted to probe the method and the preliminary results are reported.
