ملخص: هدفت الدراسة الحالية إلى اختبار الخصائص السيكومترية للصورة المعربة من مقياس استراتيجيات إدارة الواجبات المنزلية لدى طلبة المدارس. وتم استخدام المنهج الوصفي، وتألفت عينة الدراسة من (289) طالبًا وطالبة؛ منهم (65% إناث)، يدرسون في الصفوف (7 – 10) في مرحلة التعليم الأساسي من محافظتي جنوب الباطنة والظاهرة بسلطنة عمان. تم التحقق من مؤشرات صدق المقياس بخمس طرق (الصدق الظاهري، والتحليل العاملي التوكيدي، والاتساق الداخلي، والصدق التقاربي، والصدق التمييزي). وقد كشفت نتائج التحليل العاملي التوكيدي أن المقياس المعرب المكون من (22) فقرة يتمتع ببنية خماسية الابعاد (تهيئة البيئة المناسبة، وإدارة الوقت، والتحفيز، والتحكم في المشاعر، ومشتتات حل الواجبات المنزلية). كما تم التحقق من مؤشرات ثبات المقياس باستخدام معاملي كرونباخ ألفا، وجوتمان للتجزئة النصفية. وقد بلغ معامل كرونباخ ألفا للمقياس ككل ولأبعاده الخمسة (0.84، 0.76، 0.75، 0.69، 0.72، 0.67) على التوالي، بينما بلغ معامل جوتمان للتجزئة النصفية (0.82). وبشكل عام، بينت النتائج أن المقياس يتمتع بمستويات جيدة من الصدق والثبات. ‏

Abstract: The study aimed at testing the psychometric properties of the Arabic version of the homework management strategies scale for basic-education students in Oman. The descriptive method was used. The sample of the study consisted of (289) students (65% females), studying in grades 7-10 from South AlBatinah and AlDhahirah Governorates in Oman. Indicators of the validity of the scale were verified using five methods (face validity, confirmatory factor analysis, internal consistency, convergent validity and discriminatory validity). The results of confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the 22-item Arabic version of the scale has a five-dimensional structure (creating the right environment, time management, motivation, emotional control and homework distraction). The reliability of the scale was also verified using Cronbach's alpha coefficient and Guttman's half-split coefficient. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient values for the scale and its five dimensions were (0.84, 0.76, 0.75, 0.69, 0.72, 0.67), respectively, while the Guttman's coefficient was (0.82). In general, the results showed that the scale has good levels of validity and reliability. ‎
