The researches show that burnout is related student achievement and Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey (MBI-SS) is one of the most known measurement tool about burnout. For this reason there is need for validity studies of the MBI-SS for Turkish High school students. During the scale carrying out process, less-known but more effective validated procedures are used. The aim of this study is carrying out a construct validity study for a MBI-SS which assess the burnout related to student achievement. In this research, the scale is applied to 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students, the data obtained from 1020 high school students and is analysed for the validity and reliability studies of the MBI-SS. Results show that the reliability of this scale is satisfying. With the results of confirmatory factor analysis it was found that MBI-SS, which was applied Turkish student, has got three dimension(exhaustion, cynicism and reduced efficacy). But, the findings of confirmatory factor analysis are not similar to the findings of less-known validated procedures determined below and explanatory factor analysis. Findings show that the less-known validated procedures and explanatory factor analysis can not give more stronger statistical results than confirmatory.
