Objective: This research aims to conduct validity and reliability efforts for adaptation of Daily Goals Scale into Turkish culture. Methods: The research was conducted in two stages. The first stage comprised of translation works, exploratory factor analysis, internal consistency and test-retest methods; the second stage comprised of confirmatory factor analysis and discriminant validity. A total of 297 university students took part in the first stage of the research, whereas 303 others in the second stage. Results: As a result of exploratory factor analysis, % 56 of total variance of the Daily Goals Scale is explained and the factor loadings differ between 0.63 and 0.83. At the end of the confirmatory factor analysis, we can say that it has an acceptable adaptation. (χ2=192.38, sd= 63, χ2/sd=3.05, RMSEA=0.08, RMR=0.02, SRMR=0.04, GFI=0.91, AGFI=0.87, CFI=0.98, NNFI=0.98). The research also suggests that parameter of internal consistency of the scale is found as 0.92 and test-retest reliability parameter proves 0.80. The correlation parameters as well as Life Satisfaction Scale (0.45), Depression Scale (-0.23), Anxiety Scale (-0.16), Hope Scale (-0.17) were examined under the scale's discriminant validity. Conclusions: We can say that the Turkish version of the Daily Goals Scale is valid and reliable [Anadolu Psikiyatri Derg 2015; 16(0.100): 64-72]
