Abstract


This study examines factorial structure and the gender invariance of the Turkish version of the Survey of Attitudes toward Statistics (SATS-36). The SATS-36 has 36 items measuring six components: affect, cognitive competence, value, difficulty, effort, and interest. Data were collected from 347 university students. Results showed that the Turkish version of the SATS-36 had a six-factor structure and it was gender invariant. Internal consistency coefficients supported good score reliability for the subscales of the SATS-36.
