It is vital to detect the students’ behaviors which can adversely affect the flow of
learning process. Resistance behaviors are among the factors affecting the flow. It
is important to determine these behaviors without mixing them with other behaviors
however the number of the related studies is restricted. Therefore, it was thought
that developing a scale for determining the students’ resistance behaviors could
contribute to the literature. Accordingly, the aim of the study was to develop such
a scale. The sample of the research consisted of 1082 middle school students in
central towns of Adana within 2017-2018 Education Year. Through the
development of Students’ Resistance Behaviors Scale-Student Form (SRBS-S),
exploratory, confirmatory factor analyses and reliability analyses were conducted.
At the end of the analyses a scale of 34 items and four dimensions was developed
and the Cronbach Alpha values for these dimensions and the whole scale were
between .78 and .90. Consequently, SRBS-S was found to be a reliable scale to be
used to determine students’ resistance behaviors.
