    Abstract

    Senior high school students were trained to use a strategy to improve the application of knowledge in answering geography short‐answer test questions. The strategy focused on strategic behaviours ranging from procedures for activating knowledge to use of executive strategies. This training was found to be effective in improving test performance. Analysis of think‐aloud protocols of cognitive behaviour while answering test questions snowed that training was effective in encouraging the target strategic behaviours. 1995 The British Psychological Society
