© 2015, Ankara University. All rights reserved.In this study, ‘ACRA Higher Education Learning Strategies Scale’, which was developed by Arias and Justica (2003) for higher education students is aimed to be adapted for high school students. Firstly, the scale was translated into Turkish. Then, the scale was presented to the experts to get learned opinion about the suitability, scope, and adequacy of the items. The scale, which was revised in the light of the suggestions proposed by the experts, was applied to a small group comprised of high school students and pilot-tested. As a result of the pilot test, the 44-item-scale draft emerged. The data of validity and reliability studies of the ‘ACRA- High School Learning Strategies Scale’ draft was gathered from 1074 students who attend different types of high schools and different classrooms. In consequence of the analyses, it is decided that the ‘ACRA-High School Learning Strategies Scale’, which consists of 38 items and has three sub-dimensions and 37.98 variance, is appropriate for determining the learning strategies of secondary school students from all types of high schools.
