The objective of this study is to develop a scale related to the auditing criteria of Turkish language and literature teachers. The study group consisted of 120 Turkish language and literature teachers who were working in Northern Cyprus. Exploratory (EFA) and confirmatory (CFA) factor analysis were performed to determine the construct validity of the scale. As a result of the EFA, a two-factor structure emerged, namely field knowledge competences and proficiency in professions. The variance rate explained by two factors was 54.00%. This structure was confirmed by DFA; A 5-point Likert-type scale with 2 factors and 27 items was developed. The goodness of fit indexes calculated by CFA are as follows: 762 / SD = 2.011, GFI = .903, RMSEA = .076, CFI = .901, NFI = .849. An examination of the reliability analysis results of the score showed that the Cronbach’s Alpha internal consistency coefficient of the scale was 0.94. The Spearman-Brown Coefficient and the Guttman Split-Half Coefficient were both found to be 0.79. When the item-total correlation coefficients were examined, it was determined that the correlation coefficients of the scale items with the total ranged between 0.48 and 0.70. Resultantly, it is thought that the scale related to the criteria of the Turkish Language and Literature Teachers' Audit Criteria developed in this research will resolve a significant deficiency in the literature.
