Abstract

The goal of the study is to develop a scale of “Attitude toward Pedagogical Teacher Training Programme” (APTT) for finding out faculty members’ attitudes toward pedagogical teacher training programme. Two study groups (“Exploratory Factor Analysis and Reliability Group” and “Confirmatory Factor Analysis Group”) were employed to develop the scale. The main aim of “Exploratory Factor Analysis and Reliability Group” that consisted of faculty members is to determine the technical properties especially the construct validity and reliability of APPT scale. The aim of “Confirmatory Factor Analysis Group” that consisted of faculty members is to determine whether the factor structure acquired by APTT was confirmed or not. At the end of the analyses, it has been found that 14 items in the scale grouped under one factor. The study shows that “Attitude toward Pedagogical Teacher Training Programme (APTT)” is a valid and reliable tool. Using APTT with other data collection instruments about pedagogical teacher training and comparing the attitudes of faculty members with the attitudes of students toward pedagogical teacher training will be beneficial. The final form of the scale measures to which degree Pedagogical Teacher Training Programme is necessary and valuable for the teaching profession.
