Examines students' ability to predict and postdict test performance in a classroom context. Undergraduate students (N=96) participated during a semester-length course. Results show that the high-performing students were accurate, with accuracy improving over multiple exams. Low-performing students showed moderate prediction accuracy but good postdiction accuracy. Lowest performing students showed gross overconfidence in both. (Author/MKA)
