Abstract

This study reports a scale for symbiotic relationships of schools with other institutions, and it’s produced from Özcan's doctoral thesis (2017) that aims to develop interorganizational symbiosis scale for secondary schools. With this scale, the symbiotic relationships between schools and other 13 institutions were examined. This scale was applied on 67 participants: 52 school administrators and 15 teachers working in Eskişehir. This scale has four parts that contain four or more choices. Cronbach’s alpha is used to describe the internal consistency reliability of these parts’ measurements. When these institutions are evaluated as a single group, Cronbach’s alpha internal consistency coefficients were found to be in the middle- and high-value ​​range. According to the duties and functions of these 13 institutions, when three factors are evaluated, namely, public institutions, commercial enterprises, and social partners, Cronbach’s alpha internal consistency coefficients of these factors are found to be sufficient in middle- and high-value ​​range. Additionally that scale has four parts more: two parts contain three choices, and two open-ended questions were used to better explain the symbiosis situation.
