Two studies examined undergraduates’ metacognitive awareness of six empirically-supported learning strategies. Study 1 results overall suggested an inability to predict the learning outcomes of educational scenarios describing the strategies of dual-coding, static-media presentations, low-interest extraneous details, testing, and spacing; there was, however, weak endorsement of the strategy of generating one’s own study materials. In addition, an independent measure of metacognitive self… 
Metacognitive study strategies in a college course and their relation to exam performance.
TLDR
Insight is provided into the measurement of students' study strategies and their relations to each other and learning outcomes by testing the implications of the ICAP framework with students' self-reports in a classroom context.

ABSTRACT Research suggested that community college students struggle to find time to commit to classes and often lack learning strategies to balance school amidst conflicting life needs. This study
Metacognitive Awareness of Undergraduate Students in Relation to their Academic Achievement
Metacognition is an individual’s knowledge of their own cognitive processes and their ability to control these processes by organizing, monitoring and modifying them as a function of learning.
Pre-service and In-service Teachers’ Metacognitive Knowledge of Learning Strategies
TLDR
Results suggested that both pre-service and in-service teachers failed to predict the advantages of testing, spacing, and interleaving as learning strategies, and their knowledge of learning strategies failed to increase with teaching experience.

In the last decades, many studies have been conducted on learning strategy, but seldom focus on learning strategy awareness. In fact, a good understanding of strategies can discover problems in
Metacognition, Learning, and Instruction
In this chapter, we provide a comprehensive review of research on metacognition, learning and instruction in primarily older, more experienced students (middle school, high school, and college
Psychology Students’ Knowledge and Use of Mnemonics
Mnemonics are strategies that can enhance learning and memory of course material. An online survey examined psychology students’ metacognitive awareness and self-reported behaviors regarding
Instructor and student knowledge of study strategies
TLDR
College students' and instructors' knowledge of study strategies are surveyed and both groups evaluate the efficacy of learning strategies described in six learning scenarios, suggesting that instructors exhibited better knowledge of effective study skills than students, although the difference was small.
“SET” for Success: Targeted Instruction in Learning Strategies and Behavior Change in Introductory Psychology
Background: Undergraduates may not use the most effective learning strategies, particularly those considered “desirable difficulties” such as spacing, elaboration, and testing (“SET”). Objective:

Metacognitive strategies in student learning: Do students practise retrieval when they study on their own?
TLDR
It is proposed that many students experience illusions of competence while studying and that these illusions have significant consequences for the strategies students select when they monitor and regulate their own learning.
The Effect of Learning and Motivation Strategies Training on College Studentsi Achievement
Cognitive and metacognitive strategies, often referred to as "study skills," are considered essential to being successful in college. Their importance is underscored by the fact that academic tasks
Learners’ choices and beliefs about self-testing
TLDR
The results demonstrated a mismatch between metacognitive beliefs and study choices: Participants judged that the pair mode resulted in the most learning, but chose the test mode most frequently.

TLDR
The results support the notion that improved metacognition is 1 key to optimizing transfer but also that educating subjective experience does not guarantee generalization to new situations.
Improving Students' Exam Performance by Introducing Study Strategies and Goal Setting
This study addresses whether learning strategies would improve students' exam performance. Students in 2 sections (N = 65) of Introductory Psychology participated. I introduced students in the
Metacognitive control and strategy selection: deciding to practice retrieval during learning.
TLDR
A compelling metacognitive illusion that occurs during self-regulated learning is identified: Once students can recall an item they tend to believe they have "learned" it, which leads students to terminate practice rather than practice retrieval, a strategy choice that ultimately results in poor retention.
Test-Enhanced Learning
TLDR
Investigation of the testing effect with educationally relevant materials and whether testing facilitates learning only because tests offer an opportunity to restudy material concluded that testing is a powerful means of improving learning, not just assessing it.

TLDR
This article selectively review laboratory studies that reveal the power of testing in improving retention and then turns to studies that demonstrate the basic effects in educational settings, including the related concepts of dynamic testing and formative assessment.
