Yesil, Rustu; Korkmaz, Ozgen
Education, v131 n1 p8-32 Fall 2010
This study mainly aims to develop a scale to determine individual intelligence profiles based on self-perceptions. The study group consists of 925 students studying in various departments of the Faculty of Education at Ahi Evran University. A logical and statistical approach was adopted in scale development. Expert opinion was obtained for the content validity of the scale. Thus, the draft scale was written in the form of a 228-item five-point Likert-type rating scale. To determine its validity, (i) factor analysis, (ii) item-total correlations, and (iii) item discrimination power were calculated. In the light of the obtained data, it could be concluded that 143-item Multiple Intelligence Self-Perception Scale consisting of eight subscales is a valid and reliable instrument used to determine individual intelligence profiles.
