Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet; Uzuntiryaki-Kondakci, Esen – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Current studies reveal that meta-level variables are very important in learning; however, little research has been devoted to the role of metaconceptual and meta-affective variables on student achievement. With the aim of filling this gap in the literature, the present study investigated the relationship between metavariables (metaconceptual…
