The aim of this study is to develop a valid and reliable scale that determines the VA-TPACK self-efficacy of Visual Arts pre-service teachers within the framework of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) based on Visual Arts education discipline. The draft of the VA-TPACK Self-Efficacy Scale consisting of 79 items and a 5-point likert-type has been applied to 405 pre-service teachers studying in the third and fourth grades of 5 different universities of Turkey in the spring semester of 2016-2017. Following the exploratory factor analysis (EFA), a scale consisting of 55 items and 7 subscales was obtained. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) of Visual Arts-TPACK Self-Efficacy Scale was conducted through the data obtained from the scale forms which were applied to 711 pre-service teachers studying in 14 different universities of Turkey in the fall semester of 2017-2018. In this direction, the appropriateness of the factor structures obtained from EFA has been revealed. Cronbach's alpha coefficient of Visual Arts-TPACK Self-Efficacy Scale was found to be ,95.
