Teachers' team work will make it easier for the school to achieve its goals. For effective teacher teamwork, teachers should believe in the importance of teamwork and have positive feelings and thoughts about teamwork. Therefore, it is important to develop the attitude towards team work and turn it into a positive one. For this reason, there is a need for measurement tools that can be used to determine the attitude towards team work in teachers. With this study, it was aimed to develop a measurement tool that can be used to determine teachers' attitudes towards team work. For this purpose, exploratory and confirmatory factor analyzes were performed on the data obtained from the application of the draft scale consisting of 5-point Likert-type expressions to teachers. At the end of the exploratory factor analysis, a single factor scale consisting of 13 items was developed. It was understood that the scale has a very high level of internal consistency. Confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the single factor 13-item structure was confirmed and had a high level of reliability. The so-called “Teachers' Attitude Towards Team Work Scale” is considered to be a valid and reliable scale that can be used to measure teachers' attitudes towards teamwork.
