Sagir, Mahmut
Educational Research and Reviews, v9 n3 p83-91 Feb 2014
Current study aims to develop a scale to identify the universal values of school administrators in school management. In order to develop the scale, academic resources were reviewed and a 40-item draft data collection instrument was created by taking the views and suggestions of 5 school administrators, 5 academicians and 5 education inspectors with the help of semi-structured interview form. The draft data collection instrument was scaled down to 34 items following the expert views and pilot implementation (N = 52). The finalized data collection instrument was implemented on 304 teachers to obtain reliability and validity analyses and the obtained data were analyzed. Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of the data collection instrument was found to be 0.972. Rotation: Varimax analysis, one of the factor analysis methods, was utilized to identify statistically related items. According to the results, factor load values changed between 0.40 and 0.81 and were composed of three dimensions. Test-retest analysis of the study was undertaken with 65 teachers and Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient was found to be 0.970. The scale was found applicable in identifying school administrators' commitment to universal values in school management.
