The purpose of this study was to adapt the creativity fostering teacher index scale into Turkish. For the language equivalence, firstly, the English version of the scale was translated by 30 English lecturers and then the Turkish version of the scale retranslated by the same lecturers. Later, the scale was applied to 288 teachers working in Nigde city centre and validity and reliability analyses were conducted. As a result of the exploratory factor analysis, it was revealed that the Turkish form of the scale had nine sub-scales with the 33 items. MSA value was 0.925. After the Varimax rotation method, factor loading values were between 0.392 and 0.779. The lowest Cronbach's Alpha coefficient was 0.57 for a sub-scale of the scale and all of the 33 items was 0.94. In the confirmatory factor analysis results, goodness of fit measures revealed the acceptable fit and the good fit for the scale. Based on the results obtained from the analysis, it was decided that the scale could measure the creativity fostering Turkish teachers' classroom behaviours.
