Students' Metacognition during an Engineering Design Project
Lawanto, Oenardi
Performance Improvement Quarterly, v23 n2 p117-136 2010
This study evaluated metacognitive changes of three groups of 160 engineering students working on 60 different design projects. Two metacognitive features, cognitive self-appraisal and cognitive self-management, were used to indicate students' metacognitive level. The Engineering Design Project Inventory was used to assess students' metacognition. Students were asked to complete the instrument at the early and final stages of the project. Statistical results revealed a significant change in mechanical engineering students' metacognition while engaged in the project. Eighteen themes of responses that described the influencing factors for the change in students' self-appraisal and 23 themes of responses that described the influencing factors for their self-management change were identified from two open-ended questions.
