Self-Perceived Identity Scale: A Scale Development Study
Prof. Dr. Kurtman Ersanli, Esat Sanli

In that sense, it is considered to be a very important concept in psychology, especially for the adolescence period. Considering that it will contribute to the literature, it was intended in this study to develop a valid and reliable liker type scale to identify the level of such a substantial perception. Findings of the confirmatory factor analysis also indicated that the obtained fit indices confirmed a twodimensional structure. Results of reliability analysis for the negative perception of identity and positive perception of identity factors were .87 and .86, respectively. Psychometric characteristics of the Self Perceived Identity Scale suggested that it is a valid and reliable scale to be used for determining the Self Perceived identity level of university students.
