Abstract: Many students in higher education do not effectively manage large class projects and term papers to complete the assigned work on time, while meeting quality and completeness requirements. One of the serious consequences of this is missing a significant portion of learning associated with the assigned work. We propose and investigate intervention methods based on Self-Regulated Learning (SRL) theory and aimed at increasing student learning through ||process feedback|| within the context of out-of-class projects. The proposed method was evaluated with two field experiments. The results showed that the method is effective in promoting SRL, improving test performance, and producing more successful learners.

Keywords: time management; knowledge management; self-regulated learning; case studies; self-monitoring; computer science learning; learning strategies; case studies; higher education; process feedback.
