Soner Polat, Binasa Halçe, Yaser Arslan


The purpose of this study is to develop a scale that can be used to measure peer discrimination among primary school students. The validity and reliability studies of the scale were conducted with 274 (124 female, 150 male) students. In the development study, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis was applied and the Cronbach Alpha reliability coefficient calculated. At the end of the study, a scale consisting of 21 items was obtained. The results of the exploratory factor analysis showed that the scale consisted of three sub-dimensions; physical characteristics, individual psychological traits, and sociocultural features. Confirmatory factor analysis showed that the three-dimensional model was confirmed.
