A significant correlation between satisfaction and team commitment (r=.766, p<.001) and satisfaction and co-regulation(r=.583, p<.001) was displayed. Moreover, co-regulations subfactors showed a significant correlation with satisfaction with cognitive (r=.472, p<.01), behavioral (r=.546, p<.001) and motivational (r=.681, p<.001) subfactors. And the results of multiple regression analysis showed that higher scores in the motivational area of co-regulation in team project based learning resulted in higher rates of satisfaction. The results of this study show that team commitment and the motivational subfactor of co-regulation have a positive effect on the student satisfaction of team project-based learning.
