The article titled "The Validity and Reliability Analysis of Üsküdar Political Leadership and Üsküdar Elector Self-Evaluation Scales” written by President of Üsküdar University Founding Prof. Nevzat Tarhan, Üsküdar University Faculty of Communication faculty member Assoc. Prof Aylin Tutgun Ünal has been published in the Journal of Communication Studies of Istanbul Arel University
The article on Validity and Reliability Analysis of Üsküdar Political Leadership and Üsküdar Elector Self-Evaluation Scales has been published.
In the study in which it is aimed to develop the validity and reliability of two scales titled “Üsküdar Political Leadership Scale (ÜSPOLİD)” and “Üsküdar Elector Self-Evaluation Scale (ÜSSEÇMEN)” the sample consisted of 414 people to collect the data after the creation of an item pool of the scales to be developed in order to determine the political leadership expectation-perception of the voters and their level of awareness in the election decisions.
The summary of the article that Asst. Prof. Ayça Ferda Kansu is also among the authors, is as follows:
“The contribution of psychology to today's politics is beyond doubt. To understand better the current political situation in this direction, the need to measure the elector’s own awareness level and leadership expectations as a voter, and the necessity of developing a scale in the field of political psychology were brought up to the agenda.
As a result of the analysis, it was found that ÜSPOLID, consisting of one dimension and 18 items, explained 73.84% of the variance, and ÜSSEÇMEN, consisting of two dimensions and 16 items, explained 60.57% of the variance.
Moreover, it has been revealed that ÜSSEÇMEN consists of two dimensions called "Decision Making with Rational Measurement" and "Decision Making with Emotional/Ethical Measurement". Internal consistency coefficients of the scales were found to be quite high. As a result of the studies, it was understood that the scales were valid and reliable.”
