Abstract

The aim of this research is to develop a scale to determine the alliance of university students working in class with their academic staff. For the validity and reliability study of the in-class study alliance scale, 40 articles were prepared primarily by examining the literature on the subject of in-class study alliance and 3 experts working in the field received opinions from experts about the suitability of the items. After the necessary item correction procedures were taken into consideration, the data was collected from 319 university students and exploratory factor analysis and reliability study was started. After exploratory factor analysis, the three-factor structure of the scale was determined. These structures are named as “purpose”, “duty” and “emotional bond’ considering the literature. After the reliability analysis of all factors and the scale, it was found that the scale structures had high reliability scores. After the validity and reliability analysis, confirmatory factor analysis was performed by collecting data from 369 students in order to validate the structure in a different data set, and it was found that the scale's fit values ​​were good. In this context, it is stated that the Classroom Work Alliance Scale, which has been developed in the research process and has a valid and reliable structure, can be used in studies to determine the quality of student-teacher relationship.

Keywords: Work Alliance, Validity, Reliability, Exploratory Factor Analysis, Confirmatory Factor Analysis
