As a result of Kruskal Wallis H-test a significant difference was defined in critical reading self-efficacy and questioning, inference, analysis and evaluation sub-dimensions according to mothers‟ educational background, and in critical reading self-efficacy and finding similarities and awareness sub-dimension according to daily internet usage time.
