Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a valid and reliable scale to measure the team perception levels of choir members. In the first step, a draft scale comprising 54-items was administered to 332 choir members. With the KMO (Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin) test for sampling adequacy, KMO value was found to be 0.936. Factor analysis on the scale items showed that the scale comprised 34 items and 5 factors, namely choir and conductor relation, team spirit, negative emotions, responsibility and effort, emotional support and cooperation and total variance explained was found to be 56.368%. Internal consistency analysis conducted for reliability of the scale demonstrated a Cronbach alpha coefficient of 0.935 and a test retest reliability coefficient of 0.779. Linguistic equivalence tests showed that the scale and its sub-scales are adequate for both languages. Results of the study showed that the “Choir Team Perception Scale” was a valid and reliable assessment scale for measuring the team perception among choir members.
