Siberkondri Ciddiyet Ölçeğinin Türk Öğrenciler için Geçerlik ve Güvenirliği

Çalışmada, Siberkondri Ciddiyet Ölçeğinin Türkçe geçerlilik ve güvenilirliğini yaparak Türk toplumuna kazandırmak amaçlanmıştır. Bu çalışma, Atatürk Üniversitesinde Nisan – Haziran 2017 tarihleri arasında metodolojik olarak yapıldı. Akıllı telefon kullanan ve çalışmaya katılmayı kabul eden 411 öğrenci çalışmaya dahil edildi. Siberkondri Ciddiyet Ölçeğinin çeviri-geri çeviri yöntemi ile dil geçerliliği analiz edildi ve uzman görüşleri ile kapsam geçerliliği yapıldı. Açıklayıcı faktör analizinde KMO değeri 0.91 ve Barlett testi sonucu χ2=5026.785; p<0.000 bulundu. Ölçeğin faktör analizi sonucunda beş faktörlü bir yapıda ve faktör yüklerinin uygun aralıkta olduğu belirlendi. Çalışmada ölçeğin iç tutarlılık katsayısı 0.91 olarak bulundu. Ölçeğin Türk diline uygun bir ölçme aracı olduğu saptandı.

The Reliability and Validity of The Cyberchondria Severity Scale for the Turkish Students

It is aimed to conduct the Turkish validity and reliability study of Cyberchondria Severity Scale and to adapt it into the Turkish society. This study was conducted methodologically between April – June 2017 in Ataturk University. 411 students who used smartphones and agreed to participate in the study were included in the study. In the validity-reliability analysis, language, scope, construct validity, and reliability analyses were used. In explanatory factor analysis, it was found that KMO value was 0.91 and Barlett’s test result was χ2=5026.785; p<0.000. As a result of the factor analysis, it was determined that the scale had a five-factor structure and the factor loads were in the appropriate range. It was found that the Cronbach’s alpha coefficient was 0.91. It was found that Cyberchondria Severity Scale has been an appropriate measurement tool for Turkish Language.
