Adaptation of Hopes and Goals Survey for STEM Education: Validity and Reliability Study

Süleyman Yaman, Aslı Sarışan Tungaç, Belgin Bal İncebacak

Abstract


The aim of the research is to develop a measurement tool with a high level of validity and reliability in order to determine the hopes and goals for STEM education of the students. This is a methodological validity and reliability study in which the Turkish version of the Hopes and Goals Survey for STEM Education developed by Douglas and Strobel and consisting of 19 items is adapted. The sampling of this research consisted of 873 students from 5-8 grades of 12 different secondary schools. Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) were conducted to test the factor structure of the measurement tool and the suitability of this structure. Both EFA and CFA results show that the adapted survey can be established on four factors. These results were tested using different methods. Furthermore, according to the CFA analysis, fit indices show that the measurement tool confirms the factors. It was determined that the reliability coefficients of data obtained from two different sample groups were acceptable. The sub-factors of the survey are "hope for learning at school and hope for job satisfaction", "attitude towards science", "attitude towards engineering" and "attitude towards mathematics". The results of this study show that the survey is suitable in terms of reliability and validity, and that it can be used especially at the secondary school level.
