Bir Ölçek Geliştirme Çalışması: Örgütsel Anomi Ölçeği


The purpose of this study is to develop a valid and reliable measurement tool for measuring employees’ behaviors and behavioral levels of organizational anomie within the context of anomie as a concept in the literature. For this purpose, the study has been designed using the exploratory research model due to the data being collected all at once. The data required for determining the factor structure of the Organizational anomie Anomie Scale were obtained from administrators and teachers working in Erzurum Province’s central districts of Aziziye, Palandöken, and Yakutiye during the 2020-2021 academic year. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were carried out on separate sample groups using the pilot application of the scale. The pilot application of the study was carried out over 766 participants: 464 for the exploratory factor analysis and 302 for the confirmatory factor analysis, with 83 of these also being used for the main application regarding the validity and reliability study. As a result of the factor, a measuring tool consisting of 29 items using a 4-factor, 5-point Likert-type scale was obtained. The total variance explained by the factors is 65%. The alpha reliability value calculated for the overall scale is .88, and the composite reliability coefficient is .84. In the reliability study, alphas of internal consistency were calculated as .87, .68, .76, and .89 for the sub-dimensions of the scale. The results from the analyses performed to determine the test-retest reliability show a high level of consistency was to have been found between the two applications of the scale (r =0.81, p < 0.001). The scale that has been developed in the context of these results is considered able to reliably and validly reveal employees’ behaviors and behavioral levels regarding organizational anomie.
