The Impact of Metacognition Training on Academic Self-Efficacy of Selected Underachieving College Students.
Rampp, Lary C.; Guffey, J. Stephen
The effectiveness of training in metacognitive techniques on the academic self-efficacy of students was studied in a population of college students deemed "at risk" because of low scores on the ACT Assessment. Six students completed the 8-week training in metacognitive skills. The study null hypothesis was that knowledge about metacognition would not increase self-efficacy regarding academics. Data indicate that the training did have a significant impact on the self-efficacy of the student participants. The control group (n=25) did not show the same level of improvement in student self-efficacy as the treatment group. Implications for fostering feelings of self-efficacy are discussed. Four appendixes contain the study instruments. (Contains 3 figures and 110 references.) (SLD)
