Abstract:


The aim of this study was to analyze the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of Student Communication Satisfaction Scale (SCSS) (Goodboy, Martin & Bolkan, 2009). Participants were 272 students of education faculty at Sakarya University. Confirmatory factor analysis of the 24 items, one factor and the uni-dimensional scale was found (x²=1318.35, df=249, RMSEA=.126, NFI=.90, NNFI=.91, CFI=.92, IFI=.92, SRMR=.087). The Turkish version of the scale was translated and checked by 5 English experts for language validation. The final Turkish version of the scale was formed.
