Özet

The aim of this research is to examine the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Honesty Scale. Psychology and values education in our country is extremely limited studies to measure the honesty of literature and the like have not been adapted to Turkish of this scale has been a source of motivation for conducting this study. Participants were 313 undergreduate students (139 were female and 174 were male) from Sakarya University. Descriptive survey method was used in this study. In the results section confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated that this scale yielded one factor, as original form and that the uni-dimensional model was well fit and the original factor structure of the scale coincides with the factor structure of the Turkish form (x(2) = 24.50, df= 15, RMSEA= .046, NFI= .97, CFI= .99, IFI= .99, RFI= .94, GFI= .98, AGFI= .95, SRMR= .037). Corrected item-total correlations ranged among acceptable values. Cronbach alpha internal consistency reliability coefficient of the scale was .63, which agrees with the judgment that the scale is highly reliable when the "Cronbach Alfa value of 0.60 <= alpha <0.80" in the text. Thus Honesty Scale can be used as a valid and reliable instrument in education.
