SCHELINI, Patrícia Waltz et al. Metacognitive monitoring evaluation: scientific literature analysis. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.spe, pp. 57-65. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study investigated how metacognitive monitoring was evaluated in national and international research between 2005 and 2015. We analyzed 51 articles and results showed that the most prolific years were 2012 and 2014, although there was no national production. Regarding the studies’ authors, among 120 total, only six published more than one article. Research samples were composed mainly of college students. Most studies evaluated metacognitive monitoring though techniques other than tests, scales, inventories and questionnaires, although instrument-based assessment was also expressive. A total of 36 different techniques were recorded to assess metacognitive monitoring. The most predominant were: Feeling of Knowing Task, Think Aloud Protocols, Learning Judgments, Metacognitive Awareness Inventory and Met.a.ware. The need for further research, especially on the quality of the techniques used in the studies is acknowledged

Keywords : psychology assessment; metacognition; scientific literature.
