The Psychometric Properties of the Physical Education Lesson Attitude Scale for Preservice Classroom Teachers
Oncu, Erman
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v38 n1 Article 7 Jan 2013
The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Physical Education Attitude Scale for Preservice Classroom Teachers (PEAS-PCT). The study was conducted on 561 Turkish preservice classroom teachers at the end of the 2011-2012 Fall Semester. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were conducted to ascertain the validity of the scale. For the reliability of the scale Cronbach Alpha reliability, Spearman Brown split-half test and item-total test correlations were calculated. Reexamination of the scale led to a new scale structure comprised of a single factor with ten items. The altered version of the scale proved psychometrically stronger. Based on the results of the study, it can be suggested that the PEAS-PCT is a valid and reliable scale. (Contains 2 figures and 3 tables.)
