Abstract


The purpose of this study is to adapt Digital Educational Games Usage Scale (DEGUS) that was developed by
Bonanno & Kommers (2008) to Turkish with the companion of a group of university students studying in department
of English Teaching. In order for scale items to be the same in terms of language, firstly the translations of the items
were carried out both from English to Turkish and Turkish to English, afterwards examining the forms gathered from
the students, significant and positive correlations were detected among the data. Exploratory and confirmatory factor
analyses revealed that the scale had four dimensions. In item total correlation calculation of the scale it was observed
that all the items were above .40, item factor loads varied between .51 and .68, Cronbach Alpha internal consistency
coefficient was .78 and test retest correlation was .88. Significant relations were in the calculations regarding the
correlation analyses of the scale.
