Metacognition and Exam Wrappers in Biology part of ACM Pedagogic Resources:ACM Teagle Collegium:Project Reports
This research focuses on first-year, first-semester, prospective biology majors. Historically, these students encounter a challenge adjusting to college-level expectations. While we have recently revamped our introductory course sequence (2008), students have continued to struggle. After learning about metacognitive strategies at the November 2008 ACM Teagle Conference, I was interested in the following two questions: Will an introduction to metacognitive skills help students adjust to college-level biology course expectations? Will there be a difference in student performance when exam wrappers are explicitly included?
