Mahmut Tekin, Tahsin Geckil, Ozdal Koyuncuoglu


The reflections of the understanding of neo-liberal education on higher education are observed to have transformed universities into student centered institutions aiming for an education consistent with global development, generating an entrepreneurial and creative human resource and accordingly developing consistent education programs. In this context, it attracts attention that measurements are conducted to determine whether universities have an entrepreneurial structure. Although these measurements have various objectives, the primary aim is to constitute a competitive, entrepreneurial and innovative university governance system that meets the expectations of all stakeholders and to maintain the development of this system. The presence of different measurement tools in this regard would be scientifically useful. Based on this view, the aim of this study is to develop a new index regarding university entrepreneurship. At the scale development stage, the Content Validity Index study, which is the first phase of the scale development process consisting of three phases and ten steps, was performed. At the first stage, the statements that could be included in the measurement tool were created in accordance with the literature and the opinions of experts. The 145 statements composed at this stage were revised in terms of clearness and repetitions, and a draft form consisting of 52 items was obtained. This draft was sent to experts from the field and their opinions were asked. Following the expert opinions, the Content Validity Index (CVI) study was conducted and it was determined that 50 items were left on the candidate scale.
