This research is a preliminary investigation of students' awareness of their performance on comprehension tasks at reconstructive and constructive levels. After comprehension instruction, students were asked reconstructive and constructive level comprehension questions and asked to rate their performance on each level of questions. Students rated their performance higher than they actually performed on both levels of questions. They also rated their performance the same on the two levels of questions, although their performance on reconstructive questions was higher than on constructive questions.
