Händel, Marion; de Bruin, Anique B. H.; Dresel, Markus – Metacognition and Learning, 2020
Extensive research has been conducted to understand how accurately students monitor their studying and performance via metacognitive judgments. Moreover, the bases of students' metacognitive judgments are of interest. While previous results are quite consistent regarding the importance of performance for the accuracy of metacognitive judgments,…

Steiner, Martina; van Loon, Mariëtte H.; Bayard, Natalie S.; Roebers, Claudia M. – Metacognition and Learning, 2020
This study investigated elementary school children's development of monitoring and control when learning from texts. Second (N = 138) and fourth (N = 164) graders were tested in the middle (T[subscript 1]) and end (T[subscript 2]) of the school year. The study focused on the cross-sectional and longitudinal development of monitoring and control,…

Roebers, Claudia M.; Kälin, Sonja; Aeschlimann, Eva A. – Metacognition and Learning, 2020
In the past decade, research increasingly uncovers emerging metacognitive skills in young children by using child-friendly, creative, and non-verbal measures of metacognition. In the present study, the now often used non-verbal "opt-out" paradigm and classical verbal metacognitive judgments (judgments-of-learning and confidence…

Robey, Alison – Metacognition and Learning, 2020
Do all learners make the same restudy decisions, or is there heterogeneity within the population? The present study combines three previously published datasets and uses latent profile analysis to determine if subpopulations of learners can be identified that make different restudy decisions. Based on multiple fit indices, cross-validation, and…

Compagnoni, Miriam; Karlen, Yves; Maag Merki, Katharina – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Individuals hold different mindsets encompassing beliefs about trait stability (stable vs. malleable) and goal orientations (performance vs. mastery). These motivational beliefs affect behavioral self-regulation, which is an important predictor of school success and includes both executive functions (EF) and classroom behavioral self-regulation…

Lauterman, Tirza; Ackerman, Rakefet – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Meta-reasoning refers to processes by which people monitor problem-solving activities and regulate effort investment. Solving is hypothesized to begin with an initial Judgment of Solvability (iJOS)--the solver's first impression as to whether the problem is solvable--which guides solving attempts. Meta-reasoning research has largely neglected…

Koriat, Asher – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
The influential metacognitive framework of Nelson and Narens (1990) distinguishes between "object-level" and "meta-level," with two metacognitive processes, monitoring and control, governing the interplay between them. Monitoring refers to the process by which the meta-level tracks the accuracy of object level-performance,…

Mulder, Hanna; van Ravenswaaij, Heleen; Verhagen, Josje; Moerbeek, Mirjam; Leseman, Paul P. M. – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Early individual differences in self-control are predictive of numerous developmental outcomes, such as physical health and risk-taking behaviours. Therefore, it is important to improve our understanding of how young children manage to exert self-control. This study investigates two- and three-year-old children's behaviours during two self-control…

Shapira, Anat Adi; Pansky, Ainat – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
In the present study, we investigated the accuracy of eyewitness accounts over time from a metacognitive perspective, in which post-retrieval monitoring and control processes play a crucial role in mediating between memory retrieval and ultimate memory performance. In two experiments, participants viewed a narrated slide show depicting ordinary…

Neale, Dave; Whitebread, David – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
There is evidence that parents could influence the development of their children's effortful control in infancy through social interaction. Playful interactions in infancy often involve scaffolding - i.e. the parental provision of support and modelling for problem solving and learning during play. However, previous research has found little…

Hughes, Claire – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
This special issue on early self- and co-regulation addresses a topic that is founded on a rich mix of theoretical perspectives, including self-determination theory, socio-cultural theory, attachment theory and artificial intelligence. Reflecting this diversity, the papers adopt a diverse range of approaches to cutting-edge questions regarding…

Kapp, Felix; Spangenberger, Pia; Kruse, Linda; Narciss, Susanne – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Self-evaluation of one's competences is considered a core factor in various domains of human functioning, including learning and instruction, as well as academic and vocational choices. Researchers from the fields of metacognition and learning, as well as motivation and learning have thus intensively investigated issues related to the…

Canfield, Casey Inez; Fischhoff, Baruch; Davis, Alex – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Every electronic message poses some threat of being a phishing attack. If recipients underestimate that threat, they expose themselves, and those connected to them, to identity theft, ransom, malware, or worse. If recipients overestimate that threat, then they incur needless costs, perhaps reducing their willingness and ability to respond over…

Dentakos, Stella; Saoud, Wafa; Ackerman, Rakefet; Toplak, Maggie E. – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Confidence and its accuracy have been most commonly examined in domains such as general knowledge and learning, with less study of other domains, such as applied knowledge and problem solving. Monitoring accuracy in real-world competencies may depend on characteristics of the domain. In this study, we examined whether monitoring accuracy, both…

Perry, Nancy E. – Metacognition and Learning, 2019
Research in educational and developmental psychology offers evidence that children are developing basic capacities (i.e., executive functions) for self-regulating long before they receive formal instruction in school. Importantly, the evidence indicates self-regulation is a strong predictor of outcomes in early childhood and across the lifespan.…
