Abstract:

An examination was carried out of the reliability and validity of the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support-Revised (MSPSS-R; Eker, Arkar, & Yaldız, 2001) with 433 Turkish school administrators. Although it has been used often, there were no studies on the reliability and validity of the MSPSS-R for this group. The MSPSS-R measures social support from Family (FA), Friends (FR), and Significant Other (SO). An exploratory factor analysis (EFA) is conducted to examine the factor structure underlying the data and a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) to confirm the three-factor structure of the scale. In our study, the internal consistency of the total and subscale scores were satisfactory (Cronbach's alpha = .93) confirming three dimensions and satisfactory reliability.
