In this study, we tested the reliability and validity of Cultural Intelligence Scale (CQ), developed by Ang et al., (2007) on the Turkish academics sample. We conducted the research with 212 academics employed in various universities in Turkey and selected by snowball sampling method. The scale, which is originally in English and consists of 20 items in 4 dimensions, has been translated into Turkish by four academics who are expert on both languages. We examined the construct validity of the scale by Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and reliability by the Cronbach's alpha coefficient. The results of the EFA showed that the scale adapted consisted of four sub-dimensions as in the original form of the scale, and the DFA results confirmed this finding. The reliability coefficients showed that all four sub-dimensions of CQ generated high level of reliable measurements. The results of the study revealed that the Turkish form of CQ is a valid and reliable measurement tool that can be used to evaluate the cultural intelligence of the academics.
Keywords: Cultural adaptation, cultural intelligence, cultural intelligence scale, Turkish academics.
