This study investigated to see if preschool children could determine their own achievable goal and use self-recording of the step by step instruction to achieve the goal. In addition, children presented their goals to their peers. To investigate the effect of self-recording of step by step instruction, two individual case studies were completed in experiment one. A multiple baseline across participants was used in experiment two to measure three separate children's achievement during baseline and intervention of self-recording and step by step instruction. It was found that over 50% of the children could state their own achievable goal. It was also found that children's academic performance increased when self-recording their own progress.
