Summary expansion
Metacognition is a set of active mental processes that allows users to monitor, regulate, and direct their personal cognitive strategies. 'Improving Student Information Search' traces the impact of a tutorial on education graduate students' problem-solving in online research databases. The tutorial centres on idea tactics that represent metacognitive strategies designed to improve information search outcomes
