While metacognition is an important component of the learning process for college students, development of metacognitive knowledge and regulation is particularly important for students with LD and/or ADHD. The researchers used Schraw and Dennison’s (1994) Metacognitive Awareness Inventory (MAI) to assess first year college students’ baseline and follow-up levels of metacognitive awareness during a strategic learning course for students with LD and/or ADHD. Over their first year in college, the students showed significant improvements in a number of metacognitive subprocesses. Several subprocess scores were also found to be positively correlated with GPA. This study’s findings can be helpful to practitioners in the postsecondary LD support field. This approach may also be an appropriate way to evaluate the effectiveness of LD support programs when used as part of a broader programmatic review.
