The aim of this study was to examine validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the Goal Orientation in Exercise Measure (GOEM). There were 408 participants who were regularly exercising and their age ranged from 17 to 61 years old. The psychometric characteristics of the scale were investigated using exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), convergent validity, internal consistency, and test--retest. EFA results showed that GOEM had a two-factor structure (ego and task orientation). CFA confirmed this structure (x[superscript 2]/df = 1.83; AGFI = 0.95; GFI = 0.97; CFI = 0.98; NFI = 0.97; TLI = 0.98; RMSEA = 0.045, SRMR = 0.049). Cronbach's Alpha values were found as 0.90 for ego orientation and 0.87 for task orientation. Test-retest coefficient for GOEM was 0.88 for ego orientation and 0.87 for task orientation. Furthermore, correlations between the goal orientations and behavioral regulations served to provide initial evidence for the convergent validity of the measure. These results indicated that GOEM is a reliable and valid scale in Turkish context.
