The purpose of the present study is to explore validity and reliability of the Turkish adaptation of the “Teachers’ ICT Integration Proficiency Scale (TIPS)” developed by Hsu (2017) from National Taiwan University. After the translation stages of the Turkish form, it was applied to a total of 362 teachers from different branches employed by different school types. The construct and concurrent validity were used to determine the validity of the scale. Confirmatory factor analysis completed for construct validity observed the Turkish form of the scale had 5 dimensions and that this model had good fit (χ2=151.58, SD=53, RMSEA=0.08, GFI=0.93, AGFI=0.88, CFI=0.95, NFI=0.91, NNFI=0.96). For concurrent validity, there were significant correlations observed between TIPS and TICTS. The Cronbach alpha coefficient and item-total correlations were examined to determine the reliability of the scale. The Cronbach alpha internal consistency reliability coefficients for the dimensions of the scale of preparation (α = .77), production (α = .83), instruction (α = .90), development (α = .79) and issues (α = .79) were determined to have sufficient reliability. The correlation coefficients between the items and total of the Turkish form of the scale were found to vary from 0.37 to 0.69. These results show that the Turkish form of the scale is a valid and reliable scale.
