dc.description.abstract Scale items related to Cognitive and Metacognitive Strategies (CMSs), Course Design Characteristics (CDCs), Knowledge Sharing Behaviour (KSB) and Innovative Behaviour (IB) can be gathered from literature and located within relevant theoretical conceptual frameworks. The aim of the study reported on in this paper was answering the research question: How can such items be re-purposed and/or modified for measuring CMSs, CDCs, KSB and IB during technology education? The importance of this research is justified in terms of the study objectives. The paper explains the design and execution of the methodology as appropriate and adequate in relation to the research question. This quantitative research design considered issues of reliability and validity. The discussion of results shows insight and originality, suggests implications and makes recommendations that are applicable and useful. The research question is answered in the conclusion, with the conclusions being justifiable in terms of the methodology and the results of the pilot study, which allowed for refining of the measures in terms of a set of original items to be used in the main study. The pilot study also contributes towards scholarly debate in fields related to CMSs, CDCs, KSB and IB. en
