This study was conducted to uncover student metacognition skill increase in genetic course II at odd semester 2013/2014 by implementing RQA and PjBL learning model in the Biology Department of the State University of Malang, Indonesia. The study was conducted in pre-experimental design from late August to early December 2013, involving 24 students programming the genetic course II. Student metacognition skills were measured from questioning based on summarising result and its related answers. The assignment results were scored based on the specific rubrics. Initial and final metacognition skill difference was analyzed using student’s paired comparison test. The value of initial metacognition skills and those of the final one were very different. Student metacognition skills have increased very significantly from the initial measurement. Implementing the RQA and PjBL learning models was successful in increasing students’ metacognition skills.

Key words: Answering, genetic lecture, metacognition skills, questioning, summarising
