ABSTRACT

This study aims to develop and validate the Korean situational interest scale for adolescents. The subjects of the study are 959 adolescents that include 477 middle school and 482 high school students. To develop and validate the Korean situational interest scale, researchers examined previous literature and selected three sub-factors for situational interest. After developing 24 preliminary items of situational interest in Korean, researchers made 22 items that comprise cognitive curiosity, emotional flow, and achievement value for Korean situational interest as the final scale using factor analysis. In the analysis of reference-related validity of the scale, the correlation of Korean's situational interest scale, achievement goal orientation, and academic efficacy were high among the variables. The cross-validation test confirmed the homogeneity of the scale between middle and high school students. In the reliability analysis, Cronbach α was .875~.966. This study is meaningful to develop situational interests of Korean, which was necessary for identifying and enhancing the adolescents' Korean situational academic interest.
