Definition of Metamemory

Metamemory Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
Metamemory, a type of metacognition, is both the introspective knowledge of one’s own memory capabilities (and strategies that can aid memory) and the processes involved in memory self-monitoring. This self-awareness of memory has important implications for how people learn and use memories. When studying, for example, students make judgements of whether they have successfully learned the assigned material and use these decisions, known as "judgments of learning", to allocate study time.
