This study presents a review of empirical studies on eye-tracking in the education field and aims to describe the use of eye-tracking methods to measure students' metacognitive skills in chemistry learning. Eighty papers published from the 2000s to 2018 that containing major discussion on students' metacognitive skills in chemistry learning and the use of eyetracking were selected for review and analysis. Content analysis for 6 month of the selected papers showed that (1) the eye-tracking for

Thus, researchers can employ the eye-tracking method to comprehensively investigate and describe students' metacognitive skills in chemistry learning and also can be a metacognitive tool for reflective self-assessment in learning.
