Özet

The purpose of this research is to adapt Object - Spatial Imagery and Verbal Questionnaire (OSIVQ, Blazhenkova, Kozhevnikov, 2009) into Turkish which is theoretically based on Object - Spatial - Verbal Cognitive Style Model (Kozhevnikov, Kosslyn and Shepard, 2005). In this context linguistic equivalence, validity and reliability analysis were conducted. The research is implemented with 1st and 3rd grade 450 students from seven departments of various colleges of Hacettepe University. OSIVQ is a three dimensional questionnaire, consists of 45 items. Expert opinions were obtained for the content validity of the OSIVQ. Confirmatory Factor Analysis was used by trying the 3 models within the construct validity analysis. The most satisfactory goodness of fit indices was obtained by the "correlated three dimensional model". Model has showed perfect fit after the modifications [chi(2)(853, n=450) = 2388.32, p<0.000, RMSEA=0.063, GFI = 0.80, CFI = 0.91, NNFI = 0.091]. Cronbach Alpha value .829 has been determined.
