Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a scale that can be used in measurement of the metacognitive skills. In the pilot study 55-item-scale was applied to 239 college undergraduates. After test and item analysis the number of the items is reduced to 30 and the "Metacognitive Skills Scale" was formed. According to factor analysis it has been found that the scale was unidimensional and explained 35.74% of the total variance by 30 items. In the pilot study Cronbach's Alpha Coefficient of Reliability was .94.
