The present study assessed the psychometric properties of the Frustration Discomfort Scale for Turkish college students. The Frustration Discomfort Scale (FDS), Procrastination Assessment Scale-Student, and Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale were administered to a sample of 171 (98 women, 73 men) Turkish college students. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis yielded fit index values demonstrating viability of the four-dimensional solution as in the original. Findings also revealed that, as predicted, the Discomfort Intolerance subscale of Turkish FDS was most strongly correlated with procrastination. Overall results provided evidence for the factor validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the scale for use in a Turkish population.


Individual differences in statistics anxiety among college students
Baloğlu, Mustafa (Elsevier BV, 2003-04-01)
The present study investigated differences in statistics anxiety levels based on students' gender and age. Using the statistics anxiety scores of 246 college students, a 2 x 3 between-subjects factorial multivariate analysis of covariance was performed on the six dependent variables (worth of statistics, interpretation anxiety, test and class anxiety, computational self-concept, fear of asking for help, and fear of statistics teachers) that were hypothesized to be six dimensions of statistics anxiety. Indep...
Psychometric properties of Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal for a sample of education majors
Gadzella, BM; Baloğlu, Mustafa (SAGE Publications, 2003-06-01)
Psychometric properties of the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal, Form A, were computed for 135 education majors. Analyses of reliability (internal consistency and split-half) and validity (concurrent and predictive) showed that the scale was reliable and valid measuring critical thinking abilities for students majoring in education. The best predictors of the Educational Psychology course grades were the Inference and Deduction subscale scores.

Soykan, C; Ozguven, HD; Gençöz, Tülin (SAGE Publications, 2003-12-01)
The present study aimed at establishing the Turkish version of the Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale. For this aim interrater, test-retest, and internal reliability coefficients of the Turkish version were assessed as well as its convergent, discriminant, and criterion validity. Subjects were 88 patients with the diagnosis of generalized social phobia, 40 patients with a diagnosis of anxiety disorders other than generalized social phobia, and 40 people had no diagnosis of psychopathology. All reliability asses...
Psychopathological Correlates and Psychometric Properties of the White Bear Suppression Inventory in a Turkish Sample
Altin, Mujgan; Gençöz, Tülin (Hogrefe Publishing Group, 2009-01-01)
This study examined the psychometric properties of the White Bear Suppression Inventory (WBSI) in a sample of 273 Turkish undergraduate students. The WBSI assesses people's tendency toward thought suppression. The reliability and validity analyses of the Turkish version of the scale indicated that the WBSI had adequate psychometric properties in a Turkish sample. Internal consistency, and split-half and test-retest reliability coefficients were satisfactory. Consistent with the original WBSI, factor analysi...
