Summary


VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY STUDY OF THE ATTITUDE TOWARDS FOREIGNERS SCALE
While it is obvious that the teachers who play an important role in the socialization process of the students are one of the most important actors in the adaptation of international students, there is a need for a measurement tool that demonstrates how they perceive the foreigners. Following this need, the “attitude towards foreigners scale” was developed to determine the teachers' perspectives on foreigners and validity and reliability studies were conducted. The study group of the research consists of 535 teachers working in Pendik District of Istanbul in the 2018-2019 academic year. In the process that started with 42 nominated items, the number of items was reduced to 29 after receiving expert opinions. Afterward, as a result of the EFA conducted by applying these 29 items to 290 teachers, the 29-item draft scale was put into final form with the application of exploratory factor analysis as a single-factor structure with 18 items and this structure was tested using confirmatory factor analysis. The single-factor scale with 18-items explains 51.863 of the total variance. The Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient of the scale was calculated as .962. Even though the scale was formed by taking the opinions of teachers into consideration, it may also be used for different groups.
