Sixty-six students in a middle school in England were administered a questionnaire that tapped their metacognitive awareness of note-taking preferences and abilities. Students then were asked to provide a note-taking sample from a core history text so that their practices could be examined in relation to their claims. The results indicate that even though students verbalized their metacognitive understandings with a fair degree of sophistication, they were far less proficient in their self-regulated note-taking practices.
