Abstract


In this study, Turkish adaptation of information and communication technology competency scale developed by Tondeur et al. (2017) was conducted and psychometric analysis was performed. Confirmatory factor and psychometric analysis were conducted on 331 prospective teachers. Confirmatory factor analysis’ result shows that scale’s original 2-dimensional models were appropriate for the Turkish sample.  At the end of the analysis, similar to the original scale, the scale was confirmed at two factors as ICT competencies to support pupils for ICT use, ICT competencies for instructional design, and a significant and high (p <0.001) correlation between factors was found. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient, which indicates the internal consistency of the scale, was found 0.944 for the whole scale. Starting from this point, the scale is considered as a reliable and valid instrument in terms of measuring pre-service teachers’ information and communication technology competency. Besides, according to psychometric analysis, it has also been found that the ICT proficiency levels of the pre-service teachers are high and no significant difference was found between ICT competency and gender, class and age level.
