Korean Sense of Community Index 2 and Students’ Sense of Community in Korean Secondary Schools

HwaChoon Park, Pusan National University

 

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the construct of the Korean version of the Sense of Community Index 2 (KSCI2) applied to data collected in South Korea. The factorial structure of the KSCI2 was examined through an exploratory factor analysis. The extracted common factor model of the KSCI2 was validated through a confirmatory factor analysis. Next, school members’ sense of community in Korean secondary schools was described as measured by the KSCI2. A total of 608 students in high schools in South Korea provided usable data. Factor analyses suggested a two-factor model of the KSCI2, and the two factors were named reinforcement of needs and influence. These two factors explained 60.67% of the total variance. The reliability coefficient of reinforcement of needs was .91 and that of influence was .83. Conclusions, limitations, and implications are discussed.
