The purpose of this study is to adapt the Composite Codepenceny Scale developed by Marks, Blore, Hine ve Dear (2012) to Turkish and examine the validity and reliability of the scale. The study was conducted with four different sample groups of total of 871 university students (553 female, 318 male) between the ages of 21 and 58. As a result of explanatory factor analysis, the scale is composed of three factors, similarly to original form of the scale. The factors were loaded with factor loadings between .36 and .73. As a result of confirmatory factor analysis, factor loads were found to be between .32 and .86. All parameters except two parameters (AGFI ve NFI) were found to have acceptable values. Correlation values were calculated between BKBÖ and the applied scales within the context of criterion validity. BKBÖ was found to be related to this scales. Item-total correlations varied between .28 and .68; Cronbach Alpha Internal consistency coefficients varied between .61 and .76 and test-retest reliability coefficients varied between .60 and.66. These findings demonstrated that BKBÖ is a reliable and valid scale.
