Özet

In this study, it is aimed to make Turkish adaptation study of Maslach Burnout Inventory-Educators Survey, which was obtained as a result of adaptation of Maslach Burnout Inventory, developed by Maslach and Jackson, to the educators with some modifications by Maslach, Jackson and Schwab. The study group of the research consisted of 760 classroom teachers working in central district and provinces of Ankara. Validity and reliability studies of the scale, of which the original form consists of 22 items in 7 point Likert type and 3 dimensions, (emotional exhaustion, depersonalization and personal accomplishment), applied to the study group in Turkish form indicated that the original structure of the scale has been preserved. Cronbach's alpha coefficient calculated separately for each sub-dimension was determined as 0.88 for emotional exhaustion, 0.78 for depersonalization and 0.74 for personal accomplishment. Considering the item-total correlations, the items in the scale are understood to have a good discrimination indice. Model-fit indices such as AGFI, GFI, RMSEA, CFI and NFI obtained as a result of confirmatory factor analysis applied for the construct validity show that the model established for compliance have acceptable level of model-fit.
