Title:
CURRICULUM MODIFICATION EVALUATION SCALE: DEVELOPMENT AND PSYCHOMETRIC TESTING
Abstract:
This study aims to develop a scale which evaluates the curriculum modification in Istanbul University Bakirkoy Health High School regarding Sexual Health/Reproductive Health in 2006-2007 and to investigate the validity and reliability of this scale. The sample consisted of 238 nursing and midwifery students attending their first, third, and fourth year. The study included four stages: Item generation, content validity, construct validity and reliability. 23 items were generated and after the assessment of content validity in the light of expert views, four items were removed from the scale. There were 19 items left in total. We conducted an exploratory factor analysis and group comparisons to investigate the validity of the scale. the reliability of the scale was investigated with Cronbach’s alpha and item total correlations. In the exploratory factor analysis, one item was removed from the scale because it took place under two different factors. The final construct yielded five factors with Eigenvalues >1. The factor loading of each item was >.40 and each item took place under one factor. In the group comparisons, the total scores of third and fourth year students were significantly higher than the scores of first year students (p<0.05). The Cronbach alpha values of the 18-item scale and its subscales were 0.87-0.63. The item total correlation of the scale was 0.25-0.70 and the item total correlation of the subscales was 0.41-0.74. In conclusion, it was determined that the Curriculum Modification Evaluation Scale (CMES) is a valid and reliable instrument.
