Abstract
Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability and validity of the Turkish version of the Smartphone Addiction Scale-Short Version (SAS-SV) among university students. Methods: Three hundred and sixty-seven university students using smartphone from Uskudar University are enrolled the study. Sociodemographic information including characteristics of smartphone usage, internet addiction scale and SAS-SV were conducted. SAS-SV consists of ten items and single factor structure. For the examination of structure validity, the Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin and Bartlett’s tests were utilized. In order to check the reliability of each item, Cronbach’s alpha correlation coefficient was confirmed for each item and total. The corrected item-total correlation coefficients and test-retest reliability were also calculated. The concurrent validity was confirmed using Internet Addiction Scale. Results: Cronbach’s alpha coefficient of the scale was 0.867 and had a high reliability. Reliability coefficient of test-retest was 0.926. The SAS-SV was statistically and positively correlated with the internet addiction scale confirming concurrent validity. Participants who evaluated themselves as addicted to smartphones had statistically significantly higher SAS-SV scores than the participants who evaluated themselves as not-addicted. Also the SAS-SV scores were statistically and positively correlated with the frequency of smartphone-checking behavior and the time consumed during smartphone use. Conclusion: SAS-SV is a valid and reliable instrument to evaluate smartphone usage among university students.

Key words: smartphone, addiction, validity, reliability



Akıllı Telefon Bağımlılığı Ölçeğinin Kısa Formunun üniversite öğrencilerindeTürkçe geçerlilik ve güvenilirlik çalışması

Ozet
Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı Akıllı Telefon Bağımlılığı Ölçeği Kısa Formunun (ATBÖ-KF) Türkçe uyarlamasının üniversite öğrencilerinde geçerlilik ve güvenilirliğini değerlendirmektir. Yöntem: Üsküdar Üniversitesi’nde öğretim gören ve akıllı telefon kullanıcısı olan 367 öğrenci çalışmaya alınmıştır. Bu çalışmada katılımcılara akıllı telefon kullanım özelliklerinin sorgulandığı Sosyodemografik Form, İnternet Bağımlılığı Ölçeği ve ATBÖ-KF uygulanmıştır. On sorudan oluşan ATBÖ-KF tek faktörlü bir yapı göstermektedir. Yapısal geçerliliği Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin ve Bartlett testleri, güvenilirliği Cronbach alfa korelasyon katsayısı ve düzeltilmiş madde-toplam madde, test-tekrar test korelasyonları ile değerlendirilmiştir. Eş zamanlı geçerliliğini değerlendirmek için İnternet Bağımlılığı Ölçeği ile korelasyonu incelenmiştir. Bulgular: ATBÖ-KF’nin güvenilirliğini gösteren Chronbach alfa katsayısı 0.867 olarak ölçülmüştür. Test-tekrar test güvenilirlik katsayısı 0.926’dır. Eş zamanlı geçerliliği göstermek için kullanılan İnternet Bağımlılığı Ölçeği ile ATBÖ-KF arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı pozitif korelasyon saptanmıştır. Kendisini akıllı telefon bağımlısı olarak değerlendiren katılımcıların ATBÖ-KF puanları, kendisini akıllı telefon bağımlısı olarak değerlendirmeyen katılımcıların ATBÖ-KF puanlarından istatistiki olarak anlamlı oranda daha yüksek bulunmuştur. Katılımcıların akıllı telefonlarını kontrol etme sıklığı ve akıllı telefonda geçirdikleri zaman ile ATBÖ-KF puanları arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı pozitif korelasyon saptanmıştır. Sonuç: ATBÖ-KF, üniversite öğrencilerinde akıllı telefon bağımlılığını değerlendirmek için kullanılabilecek geçerli ve güvenilir bir ölçektir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: akıllı telefon, bağımlılık, geçerlilik, güvenilirlik
