Data were analyzed by using abductive content analysis. According to the results, the students viewed their involvement in school internally regulated and autonomous in over half of the cases (51{\%}, f 637) but students reported almost equally involvement, which was externally regulated and pressured (49{\%}, f 614). Most of the described episodes concerned involvement in school's academic and social processes.
