Bacon, Elisabeth; Pillot, Mathieu; Izaute, Marie; Schwartz, Bennett L. – Metacognition and Learning, 2018
We examined the basis of feeling-of-knowing judgments (FOK) in patients with schizophrenia. Such patients typically have impaired memory and awareness, but not metamemory-accuracy deficits. The magnitude of FOKs are lower for patients with schizophrenia than for healthy participants, but judgments equally predict memory performance. In healthy…

Toftness, Alexander R.; Carpenter, Shana K.; Geller, Jason; Lauber, Sierra; Johnson, Madeline; Armstrong, Patrick I. – Metacognition and Learning, 2018
Students' judgements of their own learning often exceed their knowledge on a given topic. One source of this pervasive overconfidence is fluency, the perceived ease with which information is acquired. Though effects of fluency on metacognitive judgments have been explored by manipulating relatively simple stimuli such as font style, few studies…

Harrison, George M.; Vallin, Lisa M. – Metacognition and Learning, 2018
Many scholars agree on the general theoretical structure of metacognition, which is what informed the development of the Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (MAI). Although self-report instruments such as the MAI suffer many threats to validity, they continue to be used in research and practice because of their convenience. With the MAI, studies…

Jackson, Simon A.; Martin, Gregory D.; Aidman, Eugene; Kleitman, Sabina – Metacognition and Learning, 2018
This article presents the results of a systematic review of the literature surrounding the effects that acute sleep deprivation has on metacognitive monitoring. Metacognitive monitoring refers to the ability to accurately assess one's own performance and state of knowledge. The mechanism behind this assessment is captured by subjective feelings of…

Bakhtiar, Aishah; Webster, Elizabeth A.; Hadwin, Allyson F. – Metacognition and Learning, 2018
Collaboration in an online environment can be a socially and emotionally demanding task. It requires group members to engage in a great deal of regulation, where favourable emotions need to be sustained for the group's productive functioning. The purpose of this cross-case analysis was to examine the interplay of two groups' regulatory processes,…

Escorcia, Dyanne; Passerault, Jean-Michel; Ros, Christine; Pylouster, Jean – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
We studied the processes involved in synthesis writing, focusing on planning, editing and self-regulation strategies. The aims of the study were a) to analyse the temporal distribution of cognitive strategies and self-regulation across the different phases of writing, b) to identify different writing approaches (i.e., profiles), and c) to…

Sobocinski, Márta; Malmberg, Jonna; Järvelä, Sanna – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Investigating the temporal order of regulatory processes can explain in more detail the mechanisms behind success or lack of success during collaborative learning. The aim of this study is to explore the differences between high- and low-challenge collaborative learning sessions. This is achieved through examining how the three phases of…

de Bruin, Anique B. H.; Kok, Ellen M.; Lobbestael, Jill; de Grip, Andries – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Being overconfident when estimating scores for an upcoming exam is a widespread phenomenon in higher education and presents threats to self-regulated learning and academic performance. The present study sought to investigate how overconfidence and poor monitoring accuracy vary over the length of a college course, and how an intervention consisting…

Foster, Nathaniel L.; Was, Christopher A.; Dunlosky, John; Isaacson, Randall M. – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Students often are overconfident when they predict their performance on classroom examinations, and their accuracy often does not improve across exams. One contributor to overconfidence may be that students did not have enough experience, and another is that students may under-use their knowledge of prior exam performance to predict performance on…

Mañá, Amelia; Vidal-Abarca, Eduardo; Salmerón, Ladislao – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
The goal of this study was to determine the effect of setting a delay between reading a text and answering comprehension questions on "when"-to-search and "what"-to-search decisions in a task-oriented reading environment. Fifty-five eighth-grade students were randomly divided into two groups. One group read one text, answered…

Peters-Burton, Erin E.; Botov, Ivan S. – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Elementary teachers in the United States are tasked with teaching all core subject matter and have training that involves many topics, which may limit the depth of their subject matter knowledge. Since they have low content knowledge, they often feel less confident about teaching technical subject matter, such as science (Bleicher "Journal of…

Tock, Jamie L.; Moxley, Jerad H. – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
The metacognitive self-regulation (MSR) scale is among the most widely used measures of metacognition in educational research. However, the psychometric properties and validity of the scale have not been well established. A series of analyses on a college sample were performed to address this issue. In Study 1, a split-sample exploratory (EFA) and…

Fernandez, Jonathan; Jamet, Eric – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
In addition to serving summative assessment purposes, testing has turned out to be a powerful learning tool. However, while the beneficial effect of testing on learning performances has been confirmed in a large body of literature, the question of exactly how testing influences cognitive and metacognitive processes remains unclear. We therefore…

Kramarski, Bracha; Kohen, Zehavit – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Researchers have recently suggested that teachers must undertake important dual self-regulation roles if they want to become effective at improving their students' self-regulation. First, teachers need to become proficient at self-regulated learning (SRL) themselves, and then teachers need to learn explicitly how to proactively teach SRL -- termed…

Barzilai, Sarit; Ka'adan, Ibtisam – Metacognition and Learning, 2017
Learning to integrate multiple information sources is vital for advancing learners' digital literacy. Previous studies have found that learners' epistemic metacognitive knowledge about the nature of knowledge and knowing is related to their strategic integration performance. The purpose of this study was to understand how these relations come into…
