Abstract

The current research investigated the psychometric characteristics of the Turkish adaptation of the Teacher Emotions Scale (TES). Study I included a sample of 164 Turkish middle school teachers, and Study II included a sample of 222 mathematics teachers. The three-emotion factor model was confirmed in both studies with satisfactory reliability estimates. This model was invariant across gender. In addition, the latent mean structure analyses revealed no significant differences in teacher emotions by gender. Regarding convergent validity, teacher emotion scores showed a significant relationship with teacher self-efficacy. Thus, the Turkish version of the TES demonstrated sound psychometric characteristics for measuring teachers' academic emotions in educational contexts.
