The Metacognitive Understanding of What is Listened Awareness Scale, which was developed by Katranc─▒ and the Metacognitive Awareness Scale, which was developed by Sperling whose validity and reliability studies were conducted by Karakelle and Sarac, in Turkey were used as data collection tool in the study. The Relational Scanning Model was used in the study, and the data were analyzed by using the SPSS Windows 22.0 Program. According to the data obtained in this study it was concluded that the Metacognitive Understanding of What is Listened levels and the Metacognitive Awareness levels were high. The Metacognitive Understanding of What is Listened to and the Metacognitive Awareness Levels of the Students showed no significant differences in terms of the education levels of the parents and the socio-economic levels of the families.
