Full Length Research Paper
The current study aims to develop a scale to evaluate the Pedagogical Formation Program implemented at a Turkish state university. Participants were 221 prospective teachers enrolled in the Pedagogical Formation Program in the 2010-2011 academic year. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was conducted on the scale items which revealed four factors sheltering 26 items. The scale was administered again to 215 participants at the end of the 2011-2012 academic year to validate the proposed structure through a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Findings revealed a 25-item structure, which confirmed the proposed factor solution. Implications and suggestions for further research were provided in accordance with the recent literature.
