Abstract

The aim of this research was to find out the perceived metacognition level of Physical Education and Sports School students at Anadolu University and to identify whether metacognition levels display significant differences in terms of various variables. The subject population sample was 416 Anadolu University Physical Education and Sports School students. "The Meta-Cognitions Questionnaire (MCQ-30)" developed by Cartwright-Hatton and Wells and later developed the 30-item short form (MCQ-30) was used. The MCQ-30 which was adapted into Turkish by Tosun and Irak is a four point agreement scale (Tosun and Irak, 2007). Each item in this scale is analyzed separately ranging from "(1) strongly disagree" to "(4) strongly agree.” In the data analysis, “arithmetic mean, standard deviation, t-test and ANOVA” were used. As a result of this study there was no significant difference between their genders for uncontrollableness and danger, cognitive awareness, cognitive confidence and the positive beliefs. On the other hand there is significant difference between their genders for need to control thinking. (p<0.05). Yılmaz (2007) and Semerci and Elaldı’s (2011) findings corresponded to the results of this research. There is no significant difference between their departments for uncontrollableness and danger, cognitive awareness, cognitive confidence, need to control thinking and the positive beliefs. There was no significant difference between their class levels for the positive beliefs, cognitive confidence and need to control thinking.     On the other hand, there was significant difference between their class levels for uncontrollableness and danger and cognitive awareness (p<0.05). The result of this study is supported with literature (Demir and Özmen, 2011).
