Adiguzel, Oktay Cem
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n21 p2136-2146 Nov 2013
The purpose of the study is to analyze the content validity of Public Personnel Selection Exam (KPSS), which is used for teacher recruitment in Turkey, in accordance with the teaching profession courses and Bloom's revised taxonomy of educational aims. For this purpose, the study was designed as a descriptive survey model. The data were obtained through document analysis. 729 questions asked in KPSS in the last six years--including 2006-2011 were descriptively analyzed through the analyses of these documents. The findings of the study revealed that KPSS does not sufficiently cover the teaching profession courses and has a low content validity in this sense. In addition, the findings of the study showed that the questions in the exam measure cognitive processes and knowledge aspects of Bloom's revised taxonomy at minimal rates. In conclusion, the content validity of KPSS, which is used for teacher recruitment in Turkey, was ascertained as low and some suggestions were made in order to raise the level of content validity of the exam.
