ADAPTING THE RELIGIOUS WORLDVIEWS SCALE TO TURKISH: A STUDY OF VALIDITY AND RELIABILITY

Abstract

Author(s): Ali KU?AT, Meryem Berrin BULUT

The aim of this study is examining the validity and reliability of Religious Worldview Scale in Turkish culture. In total of 299 college students voluntarily participated in the study. Both Explanatory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) were performed. The internal consistency coefficient Cronbach’s Alpha is ,93. According to EFA results the Religious Worldview Scale has two factors in Turkish culture and these factors explained %57,30 of the variance. According to CFA results χ2/df = 2,26; CFI= ,945 and RMSEA= ,065. Because all fit indices had acceptable values, it was concluded that the scale items were appropriate. The findings showed that psychometric properties of the scale were at acceptable level for Turkish culture. The findings are discussed on the basis of relevant literature.
