After the linguistic equivalence study, the form was filled by 100 university students who study at English preparatory school. The EFA showed that the total explained variance was 67% and the items in the scale were loaded under 3 factors. The CFA confirmed the factors determined in EFA. The reliability study indicated that the Cronbach alpha coefficient was.80.According to the item analysis, t test results between 27% upper and lower groups were statistically significant. Finally, the two halves of the scale were found to be correlated at.59 level. As a result, this study showed that ‘The Students’ Beliefs about Peer Feedback scale’ was a valid and reliable scale to measure students’ beliefs on peer-feedback in the Turkish context.
