ABSTRACT

The aim of this study is to develop a scale in order to determine the attitudes of students in secondary school towards etiquette. The working group of the study consisted of 266 students who have attended three secondary schools in Erzurum. Factor analysis has been carried out by the obtained data to ensure validity. As a result of the factor analysis, a structure consisting of two factors defined as "personal rules and social rules" which accounts for 52.25% of the total variance of the scale has been formed. The Cronbach alpha reliability coefficients have been calculated to determine the reliability of the scale. It has been found as 0.748 in the personal rules sub-dimension and 0.797 in the social rules sub-dimension.
