The aim of this study is to examine validity and reliability of the Turkish version of the State Hope Scale (SHS; Snyder et al., 1996). The sample of this study consisted of 411 university students. The results of exploratory factor analysis demonstrated that the six items loaded on one factor. The amount of total variance explained was 50% and factor loadings ranged from .60 to .73. Similarly, the results of confirmatory factor analysis indicated that the model was well fit (x²=13.44, sd=9, p=0.14378, RMSEA=.035, NFI=.98, CFI=.99, IFI=.99, RFI=.96, GFI=.99, and SRMR=.027). The internal consistency coefficient of the scale was .74 and the corrected item-total correlations ranged from .40 to .56.
