Metacognition and Intelligence Theory
In complex memory tasks, states of awareness about memory processes (metamemory) are related to strategic behavior. Two studies are reported in which metamemory is measured independently of strategies and recall; “connections” among the factors show the predictive value of metamemory in tests of strategy transfer.
