The study examined the effects of a metacognitive strategy (i.e., self-explanation) on elementary school students’ ability to solve word problems. Students were assigned to one of three conditions: (1) self-explanation, (2) self-learning, and (3) control. Students were administered a pretest, a ratio word problem test, and a transfer test.
