This post is part of a series that highlights the events and speakers of this year’s 36th Annual Executive Function Conference, which will focus on promoting resilience and equity for ALL students.
At our conference this November, we will be hosting a special lunchtime session to explore MetaCOG Online, an interactive executive function survey system that helps students develop an understanding of their learning profiles. This self-understanding is the foundation for building students’ metacognitive awareness and their efficient and effective use of EF strategies.
MetaCOG Online highlights students’ understandings of the strategies they use for planning, organizing, memorizing, shifting, and self-checking. This unique online survey enables students to understand and reflect on their personalized EF profiles. The tool also provides teachers with a class summary and action plan framework based on their students’ needs. Join us to explore the features of MetaCOG Online and how you can use this online survey tool to support your students.
MetaCOG Online and Data-Driven Instruction
Data-driven instruction is important, but it can be challenging for teachers to collect and analyze valuable data in the classroom. MetaCOG Online is a convenient and practical tool that can be used to collect data on students’ EF strategy use at multiple points throughout the school year. The data can be used to customize whole-class instruction and personalize strategies for individual students.
Components of MetaCOG Online
- Student Survey (currently STRATUS-R)
- Student EF Profile
- Student Reflection Sheet
- Teacher Class Summary
MetaCOG Online is currently being piloted and is targeted for release in spring, 2022.
