Construct Validity And Reliability Test On Burnout

[Full Text]



Fifi Indrayani Abd Wahab, Fatwa Tentama



Burnout, Construct Reliability, Construct Validity, Depersonalization, Emotional Exhaustion, Esteem, Partial Least Square



This research aims to analyze the construct validity and reliability of the burnout scale, and to determine the aspects and indicators that form the construct of burnout scale. The burnout scale can be measured with three aspects, namely emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and low self-esteem. The subjects of this research consist of 60 teachers who work at school “X”. The data were collected using burnout scale and then analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) SmartPLS 3.2.8 with reflective construct through CFA 2nd Order. Based on the results of the analysis of the construct validity and reliability, the aspects and indicators making up the burnout on the teachers are declared valid and reliable. It shows that all aspects and indicators are able to reflect and form the burnout. Thus, the model can be accepted because the theory describing the burnout is in accordance with the empirical data obtained.
