A pilot scale effort to develop metacognition in engineering teams at Rowan University, through structured writing, and the use of the Learning Combination Inventory (LCI) are discussed. The theoretical basis for the LCI is the interactive learning model, which proposes that learning processes occur through four distinct learning patterns. The LCI was used to profile the learning style for each student in the Rowan Chemical Engineering department. It is suggested that the faculty must do a better job of explaining the benefits of the writing assignments to the students.
