by Ilker ERCAN, Berna YAZICI, Gokhan OCAKOGLU, Deniz SIGIRLI and Ismet KAN
A reliable and valid measure is required for measuring the abstract
characteristics. The reliability of the measures are affected by the length of the scale,
definition of the items, homogeneity of the groups, duration of the scale, objectivity in
scoring, the conditions of measuring, the explanation of the scale, the characteristics of
the items in scale, difficulty of scale, and reliability estimation method. Those factors
must be known and taken into account to construct a reliable scale.
