Fen Bilimleri Motivasyon Ölçeğinin Türkçe'ye ve Kimya'ya Uyarlanması: Geçerlilik Çalışması

Bu çalışma Glynn ve Koballa tarafından geliştirilen Fen Bilimleri Motivasyon Ölçeğinin Türkçeye uyarlanması, geçerlik ve güvenirlik değerleri ile ilgili bulguları içermektedir. Bu çalışmanın örneklemini Ankara ve Edirne illerindeki 1354 lise öğrencisi oluşturmaktadır. Ölçeğin temel bileşenler faktör analizi sonucunda kimya öğrenmeye ilişkin öz-yeterlilik, kimya sınavlarına ilişkin endişe, kimya öğrenmeye ilişkin dışsaliçsel motivasyon olmak üzere dört boyutu olduğu tespit edilmiştir. Doğrulayıcı faktör analiziyle de dört faktörlü modelin uygulanan örneklemde orta derecede uyum gösterdiği tespit edilmiştir. Aynı zamanda yürütülen geçerlilik analizleri de dört faktörlü modeli desteklemektedir. Uyarlanan ölçeğin Cronbach alfa iç tutarlılık katsayısı 0.913 olarak bulunmuştur. Türkçeye uyarlanan ölçek, lise öğrencilerinin kimya öğrenmeye ilişkin motivasyonlarını tespit etmeyi hedeflemektedir. Uyarlanan ölçeğin diğer motivasyon ölçeklerinden farkı, öğrencilerin öğrenmeye yönelik motivasyonlarını belirlemesinin yanında kimya dersine özgü olması ve dolayısıyla öğrencilerin bu dersilgili motivasyonlarını belirlemesidir. Bu doğrultuda, çalışma sonuçlarının alanyazındaki Türkçe ölçek eksikliğini gidermesi beklenmektedir. ve ile

Adaptation of the Science Motivation Scale into Turkish and Chemistry: Analysis of Validity

This study is an adaptation of Science Motivation Scale, developed by Glynn and Koballa, into Turkish and reports validity and reliability of the adapted scale. The sample consisted of 1354 high school students from Ankara and Edirne. The data collected from different types of high schools was analyzed and moderately similar factor structures were found as in the original scale. Based on the principal component analysis, four dimensions which were self-efficacy in learning science, anxiety about science assessment, extrinsically motivated science learning, and intrinsically motivated science learning were determined. These four dimensioned model was analyzed via confirmatory factor analysis and moderate fit was determined. In addition, validity analysis supports the validity of scores on the four-factor model. The Cronbach alpha reliability was found to be 0.913. This scale aims to determine high school students’ motivation to learn chemistry. The distinction of this scale is that determining student motivation on learning chemistry rather than asking for general questions in science. The findings of the study are meant to contribute to the chemistry education field by providing an adapted scale.
