This research was conducted for the purpose of developing a scaling tool to determine university students' attitudes towards gender roles. University students' attitudes should first be determined in order to change this traditional view to gender and to achieve a more egalitarian view. The research sample was comprised of one university's students chosen using a size-proportional stratified random sampling method. A total of 500 students (291 female, 209 male) were included in the sample. Data was collected via self-administered questionnaires. The Gender Roles Attitude Scale (GRAS) contains 38 items and five dimensions (egalitarian gender roles, female gender roles, marriage gender roles, traditional gender roles and male gender roles). Statistically significant differences were determined among all survey items (p less than 0.01). The instrument's total Cronbach alpha internal consistency coefficient was found to be 0.92. The findings that were obtained showed that the survey is a valid and reliable instrument for determining university students' attitudes towards gender roles. (Contains 3 tables.)
