Research and Teaching Interests
My current research interests include accuracy and bias in meta-cognitive judgments, meta-cognitive beliefs, and achievement motivation.
The metacognition lab has examined such questions as: How do metacognitive beliefs about intelligence moderate the impact of anticipated rapid feedback on judged and actual performance? Does an anchoring-and-adjustment mechanism underlie metacognitive judgment of performance? Can accuracy motivation overcome anchoring bias?
If you are interested in gaining research experience by working in the Metacognition Lab, feel free to drop by my office or contact me via email/phone. And, please fill out this form (Lab Application Form) and send it to me via email (email@example.com).
My teaching interests include instruction on the psychological theories and research that apply to education such as theories of learning and cognition. I am particularly interested in enhancing students' metacognitive ability and the ability to self-regulate their learning.
