Overall, 40 students were chosen byconvenience sampling technique and randomly divided into two groups (20 subjects in each group) of experimental and control. Students in the experimental group received 10 sessions of 70 minutes long (twice a week) training for cognitive and metacognitive strategies, while the control group received no training. All students completed a teacher-made academic achievement testat the pretest, posttest, and follow-up phases. Data were analyzed usingrepeated measures ANOVA technique.

Results: The mean value of the experimental group (16.67 ± 3.58) was higher than the control group (13.47 ± 2.37) at the posttest phase. Themean value of the experimental group (16.29 ± 3.74) was higher than the control group (12.93 ± 2.84) at the follow-up phase. In addition, there were significant differencesbetween mean valuesat the posttest and follow up phases and mean valueatthe pretest phase. However, there was no significant difference between the mean values of the posttest phase and the follow-up phase.
