My Master’s thesis examined metacognitive monitoring accuracy of sixth graders under cooperative and competitive classroom conditions. I am currently collaborating with Dr. Nietfeld on a research project aimed at comparing college students’ beliefs about creativity and creative problem-solving abilities across disciplines
My main research interest is in the development of strategies to improve individuals’ metacognitive monitoring accuracy, particularly in higher education leaning environments. I am also interested in how we diagnose metacognitive abilities and am currently working with Dr. Nietfeld on the development of a measurement tool to assess such abilities in pre-service teachers.
My research interests are in motivation, metacognition, self-regulated learning, beliefs about self and the nature of learning, particularly in teachers. I am also interested in predicting teachers' performance in classroom and am currently working with Dr. Nietfeld on the development of a measurement tool to assess psychological fitness of teachers.
