About our Research
Metacognition in Schools

We are testing a self-assessment tool designed to measure a person's readiness to adopt changes in behavior related to metacognitive teaching and learning strategies in high school and college.

We believe these instruments will improve interventions for students and teachers, increasing student retention and degree completion in a higher education setting.

You will also receive a data summary of the most common learning strategies used by your students, which can benefit how you decide to coach students in their learning.
