Akademik öz denetim, bireyin akademik alanla ilişkili öz denetim davranışlarını ifade etmektedir. Bu çalışmada 11-14 yaş aralığındaki ortaokul öğrencilerinin akademik alanda gösterdikleri öz denetim davranışlarını değerlendiren geçerli ve güvenilir bir ölçme aracı geliştirmek amaçlanmıştır. Çalışma grubunu Ankara İli’nde toplam üç ortaokulda öğrenim gören 1087 öğrenci (kız n = 545; erkek n = 539; cinsiyetini belirtmeyen n = 3) oluşturmaktadır. Akademik Öz Denetim Ölçeği’nin (AÖDÖ) yapı geçerliğini test etmek üzere yapılmış olan Temel Bileşenler Analizi (TBA) sonucunda “akademik sebat” ve “akademik dikkat” olarak adlandırılan iki faktör belirlenmiştir. Bu faktörler varyansın %47.11’ini açıklamıştır. Ayrıca, Doğrulayıcı Faktör Analizi (DFA) sonuçları faktör yapısının uygunluğunu desteklemiştir. Ölçüt geçerliği için kullanılan Akademik Azim Ölçeği ile AÖDÖ arasındaki korelasyon .74 olarak bulunmuştur. Cronbach Alfa ile değerlendirilen iç tutarlık güvenirliği .81 ve dört hafta ara sonucunda elde edilen test tekrar test güvenirliği .93 olarak hesaplanmıştır. Bu sonuçlar AÖDÖ’nin ortaokul öğrencilerinde akademik öz denetimin ölçülmesine yönelik uygulama ve araştırmalarda kullanım değerinin olduğuna işaret etmektedir.
Academic self-control refers to the individual's self-control behaviors in the academic field. The study reported in this article aims to develop a valid and reliable instrument for evaluating the academic self-control behaviors of secondary school students between the ages of 11-14. The study sample consists of 1087 students (female n = 545; male n = 539; unreported n = 3) in Ankara, Turkey. As a result of the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) conducted to evaluate the construct validity of the Academic Self-Control Scale (ASCS), two factors named "academic perseverance" and "academic attention" were determined. These factors explained 47.11% of the variance in the participants’ academic self-control scores. Additionally, Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) results confirmed the suitability of the factor structure. The Academic Perseverance Scale was used for criterion validity, and a positive correlation (.74) was found. The internal consistency reliability measured using Cronbach Alpha was found .81. The test-retest reliability result was .93. These findings indicate that the ASCS could be used to assess academic self-control of secondary school students.
