Validity and Reliability Study of Marmara Learning Agility Scale

The aim of the research is to develop a Likert type scale that can be used to determine the learning agility of individuals. The research was carried out according to the descriptive survey model, one of the quantitative research models. Teachers of the primary school, secondary school and high school education levels in Küçükçekmece district of Istanbul province during the 2018-2019 academic year participated in this study. In the first stage of the study, data were obtained from 690 teachers and the validity and reliability of the scale were tested. The outcome of the evaluation of this first stage through Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) consists of 30 items and 5 subdimensions (i.e. People Agility, Results Agility, Mental Agility, Change Agility, Self-awareness).In the second stage, data were obtained from 444 teachers consist of the second sample group the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was performed and 5 sub-dimensional structures were confirmed and Cronbach Alpha reliability values of the scale after AFA and DFA were calculated as 0.938 and 0.936. The item-total correlation coefficients of the scale were between r=0.49 and r=0.69; The item-remaining correlation coefficients varied in the range from r=0.45 to r=0.65. The test-retest study was conducted with the data obtained from 79 teachers and it was determined that the test-retest correlation coefficients ranged varied between r=0.21 and r=0.64 values. Items analysis revealed that upper 27% group differs significantly from the lower 27% group (p<.01). As a result of the analyzes, it was found out that Marmara Learning Agility Scale (MLAS) is a valid and reliable scale.
