Metacognitive Awareness and Academic Achievement in College Students
Young, Andria; Fry, Jane D.
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v8 n2 p1-10 May 2008
The researchers examined the Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (MAI) (Schraw and Dennison,1994) to determine how it relates to broad and single measures of academic achievement in college students. Correlations were found between the MAI and cumulative GPA as well as end of course grades. Scores on the MAI significantly differ between graduate and undergraduate students. Professors' use of the MAI as a potential screening tool to identify students requiring metacognitive strategy intervention is discussed as well as implications for future research.
