The analysis starts with the transcription process then the coding process.

Results: This study shows that the average score lowest SDLR owned by First-year students FK UNHAS while the highest SDLR owned by Second year students. Not found SDLR category lower because students have had plenty of experience of active and independent learning that develops steadily. There are several factors that affect SDLR construct the desire to learn, self-control and self-management.
