About article:
The purpose of this study was to test the validity and reliability of “Short Flow State Scale-2 (SFSS-2)” and “Short Dispositional Flow Scale-2 (SDFS-2)” for Turkish athletes in two separate studies. One hundred ninety-seven (Mage = 22.05, SD = 3.60) athletes voluntarily participated in the first study to test the psychometric properties of SDFS-2 and completed SDFS-2, Long Dispositional Flow Scale-2 and Sport Motivation Scale. In the second study, 423 (Mage = 20.00, SD = 3.46) athletes constituted the sample group and completed SFSS-2, Flow State Scale2 and Situational Motivation Scale for testing the psychometric properties of SFSS-2. Factor structures of both scales were examined by confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Concurrent validity of the scales was examined Pearson Product Moment Correlation analysis. The reliability evidence was obtained by Cronbach’s alpha values. The results of CFA analyses revealed that the both scales have nine items with one factor. All the correlation coefficients calculated for concurrent and convergent validity were significant (between 0.45-0.92 for SDFS-2 and 0.33-0.79 for SFSS-2). Cronbach’s alpha coefficients calculated for internal consistency were.77 for SDFS-2 and 0.82 for SFSS-2. The results indicated that Turkish versions of SDFS-2 and SFSS-2 are valid and reliable instruments for sports contexts.
