Abstract:

The main purpose of the current study is to investigate the Turkish adaptation of the Political Leader Assessment Scale, which is designed by Cohen et al. (2004) and its validity and reliability. In this study, while remaining true to the original research; While creating the election declarations of leaders, arrangements have been made to accommodate statements appropriate to the Turkish culture. The sample consists of 112 participants who study in a private university located in Istanbul. The Political Leader Assessment Scale (PLAS) includes election speeches from three different political leaders (charismatic leader, task-oriented leader, relationship-oriented leader). There is a five-item measure under each declaration to make separate evaluations for each leader. At the end of the study, separate factor analyzes were performed for the scales under each leadership statement, and it was found that the scales had a unidimensional factor structure. Item-test correlations are calculated for reliability studies, furthermore, to test the criterion-related validity the Basic Personality Traits Inventory developed by Gençöz and Öncül (2012) was used. Findings obtained at the end of the analysis revealed that the Turkish version of the PLAS is a valid and reliable tool that has been demonstrated empirically.
