This study examines the relationship between students overall result in a midterm grade in Excel and their ability to predict how well they will perform on specific topics in three Excel tests. The metacognitive skill of predicting performance on specific topics permits appropriate focus in preparing for tests. The hypothesis is that very good students will have significantly more success calibrating specific topics than average and poor students. The results validate the hypothesis.
