The metacognitive skill data were obtained from metacognitive skill rubric. The data were analyzed using paired sample t-test and independent sample t-test. It was found that inquiry-based learning effectively trains students’ metacognitive skill, and there is no significant difference between male students’ metacognitive skill with that of female students.
