Özet

"Work-Related Behaviour and Experience Patterns" (AVEM) has been developed with the intention of determining the occupation related behaviour and lifestyle models of professionals. This study has been conducted to test the validity and reliability of MEDYAM, the abbreviated Turkish equivalent of AVEM. 373 teachers from 10 different primary and secondary schools participated in the study (28.2% male and 71.8% female). Confirmatory factor analysis results revealed that the data fits well with the model (chi(2) = 4426.30 and df = 2024 RMSEA = 0.056 and SRMR = 0.073). Moreover, the obtained absolute values were between .40 and .99 for Lambda; .20 and .88 for 122 value, and 8.04 and 23.09 for t-scores (p < .05). In scope of the scale's reliability test, all Cronbach alpha coefficients obtained regarding each dimension varied between 0.72 and 0.85. Findings related to validity and reliability demonstrates the suitability of the MEDYAM scale for studies conducted in scope of determining teachers' work related behavior and experience patterns
