9.45 Metacognitive experiences are not the same as affect or emotions but are feelings, judgments, reactions and experiences instigated during the monitoring of cognitive and task situations. (HOA.47)
9.46 Metacognitive experiences monitor the interaction of metacognitive knowledge task and person variables and are products of these interactions. (HOA.48)
9.47 Metacognitive experiences are influenced by person characteristics including self-concept, self-knowledge, self-awareness and beliefs regarding ability to meet the task demands.
9.48 Sensitivity to the task and its variables, task perceptions, demands and context, including context familiarity and unfamiliarity, influence metacognitive experiences.
9.49 Metacognitive experiences are described as ‘online monitoring of cognition’ or ‘online metacognition’ or ‘online awareness’ which occurs during problem solving or a cognitive task.
9.50 Metacognitive experiences inform, influence and prompt control and self-regulation.
9.51 Metacognitive experiences provide feedback regarding self-concept including ability, attributions, confidence and difficulty related to the knowledge domain, context and task.
9.52 Self-concept can affect both monitoring and control and influence and is influenced by metacognitive experiences.
9.53 Academic self-concept affects the development of strategy knowledge, selection and application.
9.54 Academic self-concept especially self-efficacy and self-perception influence metacognitive experiences and inform metacognitive knowledge. (HOA.49)
9.55 Metacognitive experiences (metacognitive judgments and metacognitive feelings) include feeling of familiarity, feeling of difficulty, feeling of confidence, feeling of satisfaction, judgment or estimate of effort expenditure, and judgment or estimate of solution correctness. (HOA.50)
9.56 Metacognitive experiences such as judgments or estimates of learning and solution correctness consciously inform strategy selection, application and control.
9.57 Metacognitive feelings facilitate the awareness of ‘fluency or interruption’ in cognitive processing and the connection or disparity between the task goals and actual outcome. (HOA.51)
9.58 Self-efficacy influences judgment or estimate of solution correctness and self-perception influences feeling of difficulty.
9.59 Feeling of familiarity involves the monitoring of task familiarity and context, and the applicability of current knowledge.
9.60 Feeling of difficulty involves awareness and monitoring of task difficulty, impediments to problem solving.
9.61 Feeling of difficulty facilitates the identification of correction strategies or the need to develop new strategies.
9.62 Feeling of satisfaction involves monitoring problem solutions as to whether they meet personal standards of achievement or outcomes.
9.63 Feeling of confidence relates to the outcome of problem solving including whether the solution is correct, can involve levels of confidence including under and overconfidence.
9.64 Judgment of solution correctness and feeling of confidence are influenced by the person variable including beliefs about cognitive ability and self-concept.
9.65 Feeling of confidence is influenced by task complexity, lack of domain knowledge and lack of strategic task specific knowledge.
