The Validity and Reliability of the Turkish Version of the Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies Inventory


The aim of this research was to adapt an inventory which was developed by Mokhtari and Reichard, (2002) called “Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies Inventory”. For equal forms process, both English and Turkish forms of the inventory were administered to 29 students studying at sixth-grade in a private elementary school, in Sakarya. Then, for reliability and validity, the inventory was administered to a total of 250 students studying at fifth grade in two different elementary schools located in Sakarya. In addition, EFA (exploratory) and CFA (confirmatory) analyses were used to evaluate the reliability and validity of the inventory on students’ scores obtained from the inventory. The correlation coefficient between the Turkish and English forms scores was .96. All factors’ reliability coefficients in the inventory ranged between .76 and .85. Considering these findings, MARSI has enough reliability and validity to be used in educational research
