P128: Accuracy of general chemistry students' exam score predictions and its relationship to performance

Morgan Hawker, Lisa Dysleski, Dawn Rickey (Colorado State University, USA)

Metacognitive skills are important for students to develop for the purposes of self-evaluation. In this study, over 1000 general chemistry students were asked, as the final question on multiple exams, to predict their scores. We will present results on the accuracy of students’ predictions, as well as the relationship between prediction accuracy and performance.
