3.3.2 The Reading Strategies Questionnaire
To determine the degree of participants’ use of reading strategies, the Survey of Reading Strategies (SORS), which consists of 30 statements related to different types of reading strategies, was used. The SORS is developed by Mokhtari and Sheorey (2002) to measure non-native English speakers’ metacognitive awareness and perceived use of reading strategies. SORS includes three categories of strategies: 13 items on Global Reading Strategies (GLOB) that are intentional, carefully planned techniques by which learners monitor or manage their reading, such as having a purpose in mind or previewing the text as to its length and organization; 8 items on Problem Solving Strategies (PROB) which are actions and procedures that readers use while working directly with the text, like adjusting one’s speed of reading when the material becomes difficult or easy; 9 items on Support Strategies (SUP) that are basic support mechanisms intended to aid the reader in comprehending the text such as using a dictionary or taking notes (Mokhtari & Sheorey, 2002). The questionnaire uses a five-point Likert-scale ranging from 1 for never to 5 for always. In this regard, the result could vary from 30 to 150 and the higher the mark, the more reading strategies were used by the student. Fifteen minutes was given to the candidates to answer the questions.
