Metacognition and Self Regulated Learning, EEF April 2018, Click here to full the full report
What does this guidance cover?
This guidance report is relevant to the teaching of all students, within any subject area. Most of the examples included are from Key Stages 1 to 4, where the research is strongest. It introduces a simplified framework for self-regulated learning and metacognition.
This guidance draws on a review of the evidence about self-regulated learning and metacognition led by Professor Daniel Muijs and Dr Christian Bokhove (University of Southampton). It is not a new study in itself, but rather is intended as an accessible overview of existing research with clear, actionable guidance. More information about the review and the process is at the end of the review. Some key references are included here; for those wishing to explore the subject in more depth, the forthcoming report will contain a more comprehensive reference section.
Who is this guidance for?
