The results showed treatment group had a higher mean (mean=134.817; SD=31.708) after intervention compare to the control group (mean=116.283; SD=26.175) for metacognitive and all the dimensions in metacognitive (declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge, conditional knowledge, planning, information management strategies, comprehension monitoring, debugging and evaluation).These finding shows that RTGC contributed as an important treatment in increasing metacognitive student who failed their Mathematics subject.
