In this study, a quasi-experimental design was employed to ascertain the effect of the metacognitive instruction approach on primary school students mathematical performance in Kogi State. A total of seventy-two students with an age range of 7 â€“ 11 years and a mean age of (M=9.12), (SD= 1.22) participated in the study. The participants were grouped into two and were subjected to a pre-test and post-test study. Mean, and standard deviation scores were used, and an independent t-test analysis conducted on the data established a statistically significant difference between the groups, MD = 11.54 (95% CI, 7.91 to 15.14), t (70) = 6.313, p = .001. Thus, the result supported the studys hypothesis. It was concluded that metacognition is effective in enhancing students mathematics performance. The studyrecommends that teachers be regularly trained on the use of the metacognitive approach in the classroom.
