Abstract

It is believed that there is a positive relationship between the attitudes of the teachers towards the lesson they teach and the attitudes of the students towards this lesson. Within this context, it is considered important to determine the attitudes of teachers who develop an attitude in a way to be able to make the subject achieve the goal effectively. Together with this, it is more significant to determine the attitudes of teachers during their undergraduate education since attitude is a phenomenon that cannot be altered easily. In this study, a scale was developed to measure the attitudes of teacher candidates towards grammar. The validity and reliability analyses of the research designed according to screening model were conducted on 252 undergraduate students. According to the results of Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) of the data collected from the 25-item trial form prepared, it was found that the scale had a 15-item, 4-factor structure and explained 67.84% of the total variance. As a result of the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) performed, the fit index values ​​were examined, and it was seen that the 4-factor structure of the 15-item scale was confirmed as a model. The results of EFA and CFA exhibited that the scale had a valid structure. Cronbach-Alpha internal consistency and test-retest reliability coefficients were calculated to determine the reliability of the scale and according to the values obtained, it was concluded that the scale was reliable.

Keywords: Grammar, attitude, scale development, validity, reliability.
