8.55 Metacognitive knowledge about specific strategies involves knowledge of strategy attributes, their effectiveness and application in different tasks and contexts.
8.57 Knowledge of strategy attributes facilitates knowing and selecting when, where and how to use, apply and revise strategies. This is supported by monitoring and control.
8.58 Informed strategy knowledge is knowledge of strategy goals, their effectiveness in different task contexts, and knowledge of the outcomes of using particular strategies in certain types of tasks.
8.59 General strategy knowledge involves awareness of general strategy processes and the value of being strategic, that it develops and is transferable to different tasks.
8.60 General strategy knowledge facilitates the development of higher-order skills which support the selection and monitoring of appropriate strategies for specific tasks.
8.61 Context and situational elements as well as the self-system influence the continued development of both specific strategy knowledge and general strategy knowledge.
8.62 Self-system involves attributional beliefs, self-efficacy, motivation, self-regulation and self-esteem.
8.63 Self-system influences strategy selection, monitoring of strategy application and helps to develop an understanding of the importance of strategy knowledge.
8.64 Strategy use is reliant upon knowledge of the most appropriate or effective strategy to use.
8.65 Declarative and procedural strategy knowledge including the applicability of strategies for different tasks and situations are important for transferability.
8.66 Strategy selection and application are supported and facilitated by monitoring and control processes which are essential for trans-situational application.
8.67 Effective strategy use and transferability are affected by beliefs about task difficulty, positive or negative self-concept as a problem solver, self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation.
8.68 Metacognitive acquisition procedures (labelled as executive processes) incorporates executive and self-regulatory processes necessary for strategy evaluation and generalisation.
8.69 Executive functions facilitate strategy selection, application, transfer and regulation.
8.70 Executive functions facilitate mental representations of task components, support the allocation of mental resources and capabilities and monitor solution processes.
8.71 Metacognition incorporates self-system components including self-knowledge, personal and motivational states, and attributional beliefs which influence executive functioning and self-regulation.
