Trialling a metacognitive training intervention

Author

Laurence O’dell

Summary

Laurence investigated the effectiveness of conducing metacognitive training with 6th form students. To do so, students from four A Level classes were divided into attainment-based groups, using average GCSE scores, and they completed a weekly “learning log” for four weeks, with a different metacognitive focus each week. Using scores from a metacognitive awareness scale (MAIT) and a studies skills inventory, as well as weekly test scores and interviews, Laurence’s findings suggest that the intervention was well-received and the results of this small-scale application were promising, both for test scores and changes to behaviours.
