Kapikiran, Sahin
Education, v132 n3 p474-483 Spr 2012
The present study aims to determine the validity and reliability of the academic resilience scale in Turkish high school. The participances of the study includes 378 high school students in total (192 female and 186 male). A set of analyses were conducted in order to determine the validity and reliability of the study. Firstly, both exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was performed in order to determine the factor structure of the scale. The compliance criteria of the scale regarding both exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis reached an adequate level. The Turkish version of the scale was found to have one-dimension. The convergent and discriminant validity of the academic resilience scale were determined. Internal consistency of the scale was measured and total item correlation and test re-test analyses were performed. Consequently, the validity and reliability of the scale reached to an adequate level. The scale was found to be suitable for determining the academic resilience levels of the high school adolescent.
