Summary:

Encouraging undergraduates to reflect on what learning resources would help them learn best—identifying specific resources, writing about why each resource they chose would be helpful, and creating a specific plan to use that resource—improved performance in an introductory statistics class by one-third of a letter grade. The effect was mediated by greater reflection students reported on their learning progress, which, in turn, predicted greater reported effectiveness of learning resources.
