Abstract


THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE CONTENT EDITING STANDARDS SCALE OF THE SOCIETY FOR NEWS DESIGN

With the advancement of technology, there has been an increase in information sharing, and interesting and accurate communication of complex data has gained importance. To this end, for determining the compatibility level of infographic visuals and contents, a scale was developed to asses the conformity of infographic visuals to the SND standards within the context of content editing. For the preparation of the scale, views of three experts from each of visual arts, communication sciences, and educational sciences departments were received, and the criteria were determined based on the literature. To test the validity of “the SND content editing standards scale” validity and reliability analyses were conducted for a sample of 50 persons consisted of academics working at visual arts and communication faculties under the scope of the Exploratory Factor Analysis. The KMO values for “the SND content editing standards scale” were found to be 0.925, the Barlett test result was 577.459, and the conducted analyses revealed that the scale had a high level of reliability and internal consistency.
