Abstract


Technology has become increasingly prevalent in the field of education. Alongside the growing presence of technology in educational environments, the importance of learning with multimedia tools has also increased. It is believed that individuals need to be aware of how to learn most effectively in these environments for effective learning to take place. This research aims to develop a valid and reliable scale to reveal university students' metacognitive awareness of learning processes with multimedia. To achieve this goal, the study was conducted in two phases. Firstly, a pool of items was created by reviewing the literature, and 407 data were obtained to explore this pool of items. Subsequently, to confirm the structure of the revealed 6-factor scale, 318 data were collected from a second study group. The confirmed scale consists of a total of 41 items under six factors, explaining 54% of the total variance. The reliability coefficients for internal consistency of the scale as a whole were calculated as ω = .90 and α = .85. The results of the study indicate that the developed scale is a valid, reliable, and effective tool for measuring university students' metacognitive awareness of learning with multimedia.
