Abstract


Past studies have explored student self-perception within chemistry courses.  Various factors have been explored including course level, student academic background, and gender.  However, it appears that there are few (if any) studies that have looked at whether students are aware of how they have performed previously in the course.  Through a study over a two-year period, students at all levels (freshman through M.S.) of a chemistry program were surveyed and asked to self-report predictions of their score on examinations as well as several other items including their recall of previous course grades.  At all levels, poorer performing students were less likely to be able to recall previous examination scores.
