Abstract

Measurement and evaluation are critical elements in curriculum programs and for physical education (PE) teachers. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to establish the validity and reliability of the Measurement and Evaluation of Common Competency Perception (MECCP) Scale for in-service PE teachers (n=878). For construct validity, Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) (n=440) were conducted with two different samples. According to the EFA results (n=438), the three-factor MECCP Scale contained 23 items. After CFA (n=440), the three-factor structure was 23 items using Schumacker and Lomax LISREL analyses. Findings indicated good fit indices with χ2/sd=4.83, RMSEA=0.09, CFI=0.96, IFI=0.96, and NFI=0.95. In addition, Cronbach alpha scores were calculated as 0.50-0.77. In conclusion, the MECCP Scale was found to be valid and reliable for Turkish in-service PE teachers and is therefore highly recommended to evaluate inservice PE teacher's perceptions of the measurement and evaluation of common competency and also to establish new experimental designs to support the development of general efficiency levels of measurement and evaluation by PE teachers.
