Consequently, this dysfunctional processing develops into, or initially causes, perseverative thinking and emotional coping or develops clinical tendencies and cognitive irregularities, playing a major role in psychopathology.9 The metacognitive
theory is a comprehensive explanation of metacognitions that monitor and regulate the executive self-regulatory system.
Findings revealed an insignificant association between self-efficacy beliefs and metacognitive
The table 3 shows that high level of motivation in prospective teachers has weak positive correlation with learning strategies containing organization, rehearsal, critical thinking, time and study environment, elaboration, metacognitive
self-regulation, peer-learning, and effort regulation.
Metcalfe and Shimamura (1994) argued that metacognitive
awareness is a higher level cognitive process that influences other factors of cognition, such as perception and memory.
If the dog would "check" through the gap when he had not seen where the reward was placed, this would indicate that he was aware that he did not know where the reward was--a metacognitive

No cognitive or metacognitive
challenging, coping skills training, or other treatment techniques were undertaken.
In this research area, the use of metacognitive
scaffolding in computational environments is an aid for the student when managing and regulating cognitive processes during the learning process.
