In  an  attempt  to  develop  a  metacognitive  writing  questionnaire,  Farahian  (2015) conducted  a  study  which  was  based  on  the  results  obtained  from  a  semi-structured interview (Maftoon, Birjandi & Farahian, 2014). After running various exploratory factor analyses  (EFA)  to  validate  the questionnaire  two  general  scales  of  knowledge  and regulation  of  cognition  emerged;  however,  regarding  the  subscales  of  knowledge  and regulation  of  cognition  no  clear  pattern  was  found.  As  such,  in  the  present  study  a confirmatory  factor  analysis  (CFA)  was  run  to  refine  the  scale  and  construct  the  final questionnaire.  The  findings  led  to  a  hypothesised  model  comprising  two  factors of knowledge of cognition and regulation of cognition with ten subcategories represented in a 36-item questionnaire.
