Abstract

It is frequently expected from teachers to change their instructional techniques in line with the innovations in education. However, change is a painful process. Developing or adapting a scale to measure teachers’ tendencies toward change may contribute to possible future studies about teacher change. Therefore, this study is aimed to investigate the psychometric characteristics of school administrators’ Change Tendencies Scale (CTS) for teachers. The analyses were conducted through the data obtained from 850 teachers who had participated in the study voluntarily. The four-factor structure of CTS was examined by first and second level Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA).
