Numerous scales have been developed to measure teachers' self-efficacy perceptions. The aim of this study is to test the validity and reliability of the Turkish adapted sample of the Sense of Self-Efficacy Scale - Short Form (TSES-SF) developed by Tchannen-Moran and Woolfolk Hoy (2001), by examining the factor structure. The study consisted of 943 teachers, of which 410 were primary and 533 were secondary school teachers. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was performed to examine the factor structure of the Teacher Sense of Self-Efficacy Scale - Short Form (TSES-SF) adapted to Turkish. According to the calculated results of the Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), it was determined that the scale had acceptable and good level of compliance values. Cronbach Alpha Reliability Coefficient was calculated as .88 for all scale items. The findings indicate that the Turkish adaptation of the Sense of Self-Efficacy Scale - Short Form (TTSES-SF) is an appropriate tool for measuring teachers' Self-Efficacy Perception in terms of validity and reliability.
