Conceptualizing wellness requires a systematic assessment with reliable, valid and accurate measurements. The purpose of the study is to develop both a valid and reliable scale to evaluate the wellness of emerging adults. This research is composed of three separate studies. In the first study, item pool was generated and content validity was evaluated. In the second study (n = 343), factor structure with exploratory factor analysis (EFA), convergent validity and internal reliability of the Wellness Scale for Emerging Adults (WSEA) were investigated. In the third study (n = 357), the factor structure of WSEA was determined by EFA and it was tested by confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) in a different sample. EFA results showed that WSEA had a single-factor structure and CFA results indicated that single-factor structure model showed acceptable fit. In addition, the internal consistency reliability coefficient of WSEA was calculated in the third study. Cronbach's alpha was calculated as .81 and .82, respectively in the second and third studies. The findings demonstrate that WSEA is a reliable and valid instrument.

DEVELOPMENT OF NATURE OF SCIENCE SCALE (NSS) FOR ADVANCED SCIENCE STUDENTS
Koksal, Mustafa Serdar; Çakıroğlu, Jale (2010-01-01)
Frequent use of open-ended questionnaire plus interview application for nature of science as a requirement for informed decision making has been criticized by many researchers and a need for an easily administrable and scorable instrument has been emphasized. At the same time, existing instruments were developed with the students out of advanced students. Therefore, the purpose of this study is development of a nature of science scale for advanced science students. The study was conducted with 224 advanced ...

With the use of ecologically validated tools more applicable measurements can be obtained, especially of individuals who have psychological disorders. Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a neural imaging method that comes into prominence for imaging patients who have psychological disorders. It is a desired method because of its feasibility, high resolution in time and its partial resistance to head movements. Following the developments in the artificial intelligence, individuals' medical data ...
Design and verification of diamond based capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer
Çetin, Ahmet Murat; Bayram, Barış; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2011)
Potential applications such as high intensity focused ultrasound in medical therapeutics require larger output pressures. To offer unprecedented acoustic output pressure in transmit without the limitations, Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducer operation modes of collapse and collapse-snapback are introduced in literature. Both operation modes require the membrane to contact the substrate surface, which poses a problem on the durability of the membrane in terms of structural integrity and tribologi...
The short version of ruminative response scale: reliability, validity and its relation to psychological symptoms
Erdur Baker, Özgür (2010-04-25)
This study was designed to examine structural validity and reliability of short version of The Ruminative Response Scale (RRS) developed by Treynor, Gonzalez, and Nolen-Hoeksema (2003). Participants were 549 (307 girls, 242 boys) volunteering high school students. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Internal Consistency Coefficient (Cronbach Alpha), and Convergent validity were used to assess cross-cultural equivalence of this particular instrument. Based on these results, The Ruminative Response Scale appe...
