The research was carried out with a total of 330 teachers from 8 Anatolian high schools and 8 vocational high schools selected by stratified sampling method in Efeler District of Aydin Province, Turkey in the 2017-2018 academic year. When the data were analyzed, 8 data collection tools which were filled in and which did not carry normality conditions were removed without investigation and analyzed through 322 data collection tools.
