The Winter 1997 issue of the 'Journal Of Developmental Education' includes
an article, "Connecting Reading and Writing: College Learners'
Metacognitive Awareness," by Amelia E. El-Hindi.  This a fascinating and
thought-provoking article.  It references two instruments which she
designed for a previous, larger study, which might satisfy your needs.  The
original reference is "Enhancing metacognitive awareness in metacognitive
learners" in 'Reading Horizons.' 36(3), 214-230.

I hope this helps with your quest.
