This study investigated the validity and reliability of the Turkish Version of the Perceived Political Self-Efficacy Scale (PPSES; Caprara, Vecchione, Capanna, & Mebane, 2009). Participants were 203 (105 were female and 98 were male; 40 were manager and 163 were worker) individuals. Results of confirmatory factor analysis demonstrated that the 10 items loaded on one factor and the unidimensional model was well fit (x²= 58.38, df= 33, RMSEA= .062, IFI= .98, CFI= .98, RFI= .93, NFI= .95, NNFI= .97, GFI= .95, AGFI= .91, SRMR= .036). Cronbach alpha internal consistency coefficient of the scale was found as .92. The corrected item-total correlations of PPSES ranged from .55 to .78. Factor loadings ranged from .56 to .82. These results demonstrate that this scale is a valid and reliable instrument.
