Development, Validity and Reliability Study of the Learning Object Evaluation Scale (LOES)

Yıldırım, Zahide
The purpose of the current study was to develop a Learning Object Evaluation Scale (LOES) in Turkish language. The sample consisted of 388 sixth grade students in a primary school. In the study, item-total correlation, item-remainder correlation, Cronbach's alpha, difference between upper and lower group means were analyzed. Results of the exploratory factor analysis (EFA) showed that 30 items were loaded into three factors: perceived learning, usability and engagement. The internal consistency reliability of three factors were .88, .91 and .90 respectively. The total variance explained was 54.42%, and common factor loadings ranged between .39 and .72. Fit index values of the model was chi 2/df = 2.74, RMSEA = .07, SRMR = .06, GFI = .87, AGFI = .85, CFI = .97, and NNFI = .97. These findings showed that this scale was valid and reliable instrument to evaluate learning objects.
