Abstract

The aim of this study is to develop a scale that measures the attitudes of physical education and sports teachers towards measurement and evaluation. In this study, scale development principles and steps of DeVellis (2017) were used. Initially, a literature review was conducted, 19 physical education and sports teachers were interviewed in written form and focus group discussion were held with 7 teachers. Certain statements were converted into a format that can be used in the scale form and an item-pool of 73 items was created including positive and negative items. Expert opinions were taken for the draft items, corrections were made in the item pool in line with these expert opinions, and the initial form the scale was created including 58 items. This draft scale was applied to 50 physical education and sports teachers. As a result of the pilot implementation, the scale was put into its final draft form with a total of 58 items, 17 of which were negative. As the conclusion of the reliability and validity tests applied to the Measurement and Evaluation Attitude Scale for Physical Education and Sports Teachers, 34 items were removed from the draft scale and the final form of the scale included 4 factors and 24 items with a variance value of 46.545. The Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of the scale was calculated as 0.85.
