The scale for the perception of artistic sides of the teaching profession: a scale development study
Perception of artistic sides of teaching profession
This study aims to develop a measurement tool that can reveal the perceptions of teachers about the artistic sides of their profession. In the study, data were collected from two different groups for exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to determine the construct validity of the scale. There are 442 people in the first study group, consisting of preschool, primary, secondary and high school teachers, and 511 people in the second study group. As a result of EFA, it was determined that the scale had a structure with three factors and 31 items. The variance rate explained by these factors is 67.9%. This construct was validated by DFA. Goodness of fit indices calculated by CFA are as follows: χ²/sd= 3.887; CFI=.912; TLI=.903, RMSEA=.068; SRMR=0.072. The Cronbach's Alpha internal consistency coefficient of the scale is .96. As a result, a valid and reliable data collection tool has been developed that can give an idea about how teachers perceive the artistic sides of their profession.
