The experimental group underwent metacognitive training based on Koziak's (2001) model for 10 one-hour weekly sessions; while the control group did not receive any intervention. Also, Harter's motivational beliefs questionnaire (1981) and Ryan and Connell's self-regulated learning questionnaire (1989) were used in the pre-test and post-test stages. Finally, the data were analyzed using univariate and multivariate analysis of covariance and Bonferroni's post hoc test.


The results showed that metacognition training has an effect on students' motivational beliefs (F=12.31; P=0.002) and self-regulation learning strategies (F=17.35; P=0.001).


It can be concluded that metacognitive training is effective on students' motivational beliefs and self-regulation learning strategies, and this training can be used to reduce students' psychological problems.
