Adults after traumatic brain injury (TBI) often display learning and executive function deficits. In this study, two adults with TBI and two control subjects were required to self-monitor their learning by making "judgments-of-learning" (JOL) predictions about future recall. When JOL predictions are delayed after learning rather than immediate, predictive accuracy is usually extremely high. In this study, TBI subjects' delayed monRoring accuracy was only slightly better than their immediate monitoring accuracy. Controls were highly accurate when predictions were delayed from the learning episode. Clinical implications regarding the importance of accurate monitoring in relationship to strategy selection will be discussed.
