The article presents the review of key literature references (over the last 15 years) devoted to the issue of metacognition and its correlation with intellectual and other capacities of individuals. It analyzes several concepts concerning general and special characteristics of metacognition, the possibility of its purposeful attainment and transmission of metacognitive capacities to other areas of cognitive activity. The review touches upon the diagnostic potential of metacognition as giving the possibility to predict intellectual development of an individual, his or her motivation and self-regulation in educational practice. The article contains references to some empirical data disclosing the non-linear character of metacognitive development.
