Proposal Abstract

This poster presentation summarizes research that has been conducted on self-reflection, metacognition, and motivation. It explores the use of a confidence-assessment technique and how it operates as an advance organizer for instruction and serves as a study guide for students. Student perceptions of learning were examined with formative evaluation self-reports, tests, and confidence ratings before and after instruction. This study compares high and low-scoring groups based on their test results to confidence ratings about knowledge and skills.
