people's knowledge, monitoring, and control of their memory

Metamemory predict actual memory?
(A) people are overconfident in accuracy of total correct items...
(B) BUT highly accurate when they predict which individual items they'll remember and which ones they'll forget
(C) But only if these estimates aren't immediately after learning the items, and instead delayed judgments ( Long-Term Memory)
(D) students were generally more accurate in estimating their scores on the multiple-choice questions then essays of free recall

A) Calibration measures people's accuracy in estimating their actual performance
(B) Similar in the accuracy of their immediate judgements and the two groups
(C) Likely to be "well calibrated" in the delayed-judgement condition

Memory Accuracy
(A) College students are not sufficiently aware of strategic factors that can influence their memory performance
---- believe instead :all memory strategies are created equal

Study Strategies
1) When they have time to master a relatively easy task, they allocate the most time to the difficult times
2) On a more challenging task—with time pressure—they realistically adjusted their study strategies so that they focus on the items they are likely to master in the limited time frame

Likelihood of Remembering a Specific Target
(A)The tip-of-the-tongue- subjective experience of knowing the target word for which you are searching, yet you cannot recall it right now ( involuntary- more extreme and irritating)
---- exhibit nonverbal behaviors: embodied cognition.
2) The feeling-of-knowing- describes the subjective experience of knowing some information, but you cannot recall it right now (more conscious) ( strong F.O.K. when large amount of partial)
