The study analyses the results of the empirically established connections between the features of the singled out personal, cognitive and metacognitive characteristics of students. In particular, it is established that the illusion of knowing regarded as an overconfidence and an error of metacognitive monitoring occurs in all types of metacognitive judgments, but is more evident in prospective judgments. We found the correlation between the indicators of the illusion of knowing and metacognitive activity, metacognitive awareness and self-confidence. Reflexivity, educational motivation, self-efficacy and student’s introspection of fixed or changeable intellect are conneted with the illusion of knowing from across the spectrum of the system of relations with metacognitive characteristics and general self-confidence. Gender and age differences in the manifestation of the illusion of knowing are not observed, although it is found that women tend to overconfidence. The illusion of knowing is more typical for younger students, especially for those with low levels of educational achievements.

W artykule zostały przeanalizowane wyniki badań empirycznych iluzji wiedzy w zakresie systemu wspόłczynnikόw niezawodności monitoringu działań edukacyjnych studentόw. Szczegόlnie stwierdzono, że iluzja wiedzy jako nadmierna pewność i błąd metakognitywnego monitorowania występuje we wszystkich rodzajach sądów o przebadanym, jednak bardziej przejawia się w sądach prospektywnych. Empirycznie ustalono korelacyjne wspόłzależności pomiędzy wskaźnikami iluzji wiedzy a aktywnością metakognitywną, metakognitywnym zaangażowaniem w działania, ogόlną pewnością siebie. Refleksyjność, motywacja nauczania, samoskuteczność oraz wyobraźnia studenta o „ustaloną albo wzrastającą” inteligencję są powiązane z iluzją wiedzy pośrednio poprzez system łączności z cechami charakterystycznymi i ogόlną pewnością siebie. Pod względem rόżnic płciowych, u kobiet ustalono tendencję do przewagi nadmiarnej pewności siebie. Ponadto okazało się, że iluzjia wiedzy jest bardziej typowa dla studentόw młodszej grupy wiekowej, zwłaszcza tych, ktόrzy cechują się niskim poziomem osiągnięć edukacyjnych.
