Abstract

Colleges and universities offer (and most require) some type of success course to new students that includes training in study strategies and tactics as these metacognitively guided skills are crucial to college success. Metacognitive elements include knowledge of how learning occurs, as well as monitoring and control of the learning process. In addition, more intensive and comprehensive precollege preparation programs, such as the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program, target intellectually capable students at the secondary level who require additional academic and social support to become college ready.
