Whereas human beings are only seem to” have” cognitive processes they have knowledge about the process itself as well. This process, which is known as metacognition should be taken as a system responsible for the proper functioning of whole memory system via its executive role in information processing. Although some differences on naming and definition of the term metacognition in literature an agreement among researchers seem to occur on the fact that metacognition has two general aspects; monitoring and control. When taken from a developmental perspective an increment takes start in information processing capacity and functionality of cognitive functions directly related with executive functions including non-verbal reasoning, decision making, problem solving, abstracting, using the acquired information and producing new information of adolescents bythe age 11 which is the onset of the formal operational stage. Thus level of metacognitive development might be an indicator and predictor of the general developmental status of executive functions such as decision making in adolescents. In this researchwe tried to investigate therelation among the metacognition level, decision, problem solving and locus of control.
