Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to develop a scale based on student ratings for evaluating physical education teachers to be used in secondary schools. The work-group of the research consists of 892 students who participated voluntarily and were selected randomly among 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students who study at secondary schools in Karabuk province centre and its Safranbolu district in 2013-2014 academic year. Statistical analyses were conducted on the obtained data, necessary arrangements were conducted and Scale of Evaluating Physical Education Teachers based on Students Ratings (SEPETBSR) was found to consist of 3 factors and 48 items. KMO (Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin Measure of Sampling Adequacy) value of the scale was found as .97, and Bartlett Test of Sphericity value was calculated as 24238.74; and these values were significant at .01 level. Cronbach alpha internal consistency coefficients were calculated as .96 for the first factor General Performance; .91 for the second factor Course Performance, .71 for the third factor Negative Attitude; and .95 for the whole scale. Consequently, Scale of Evaluating Physical Education Teachers based on Students Ratings (SEPETBSR) was found to be a valid and reliable scale that can be used by researchers who study at the subject field.
