Ersozlu, Alpay; Ulusoy, Tarik
European Journal of Educational Research, v5 n2 p43-52 2016
The purpose of this study was to adapt "Distributed Leadership Scale" originally developed by Davis into Turkish Language. A total of 386 participants including teachers employed in high schools in Tokat participated in the study. Explanatory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) were performed to test the structural validity of the scale. EFA results illustrated that adapted scale consisted of seven factors. In the light of the original scale form, these factors were named as "School Organization," "School Vision," "School Culture," "Instructional Program," "Artifacts," "Teacher Leadership," "Principal Leadership." The scale consisted of 34 items and reliability coefficients for the subscales from 0.75 and 0.92. Results finally revealed that Distributed Leadership Scale-Turkish Adapted Form is a valid and reliable measurement tool to be used in describing the distributed leadership behaviors in schools.
