This paper describes the psychometric properties of the Error Oriented Motivation Scale (EOMS) in Turkish sample. The EOMS was developed to determine individuals’ strategies in case of occurring errors. The current study consisted of two different studies designed in survey research. The research group of study 1 was composed of 242 university students. The mean age was 21.66 (Sd: 1.65) with an age range from 18 to 26 years. The results of confirmatory factor analysis, item analysis, and reliability analysis appeared strong support for reliable and valid measure. Study 2 including second order confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to get evidence for cross factorial validation of EOMS. Participants of study 2 were 100 graduate students. The age of participants ranged from 18 to 26. Study 2 demonstrated that the three factor model of EOMS in Turkish sample showed excellent model with sufficient fit indices. In total, the EMOS is a reliable and valid measure among Turkish university students.
