Research on young children's predictions regarding metacognitive and physical performance has shown that they tend to overestimate their performance. This study aims to compare the accuracy of judgments of learning and feeling of knowing with judgments of motor performance in preschoolers aged between 48 and 72 months. Results show that children's judgment of their motor performance is more accurate than their judgment of learning. The difference between children's feeling of knowing and their feeling of motor performance is present only in one motor task. A significant difference between the accuracy of children's judgments of learning and feeling of knowing was found. It was also observed that there is a significant difference between the judgment of motor performance and feeling of motor performance in each motor task, i.e., children's feeling of motor performance was more accurate. The accuracy of children's metacognitive judgment and motor task judgment, however, was not different between different age groups.
