This study reports the development of metacognition inventory for Internet search for middle school students. In this study, analysis and results of both exploratory and confirmatory factors are reported. Firstly, 37-items were generated considering literature review and metacognitive challenges faced during the search process, and pilot exploratory factor analysis was conducted. Secondly, the final version of the scale was distributed to 273 seventh grade students, and the existing constructs were extracted through exploratory factor analysis. Thirdly, 321 seventh graders completed the inventory, and then the data were used for confirmatory factor analysis. As a follow-up, test-retest reliability was tested with 101 sixth graders. Based on the findings, the sub-scales of the inventory included (1) reflection and regulation, (2) monitoring, (3) planning, (4) control of attention, and (5) strategy generation.
