Some of the research methods that are used in this study are described in these papers.
We measured students' metacognition and attitudes toward learning using selected items from three established instruments:
Research on the Integrated Science Curriculum (RISC),
Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ), and the
STEM Questionnaires developed by the STEM team at the Higher Education Research Institute (HERI).
These survey questions were administered to students at the beginning and end of each class.
