Abstract

Character is one that is much discussed today in Indonesia. In Indonesia, a lot of character education is being encouraged. However, there are not many valid and reliable character measurements associated with these characters. Therefore, this study, intended to adapt and test the validity and reliability of the Indonesian version of the Character Scale. The data was collected online using the Character Scale created by Wang et al. consisting of 33 items. Based on the data analysis, the Cronbach’s Alpha reliability coefficient was 0.986. The content validity analysis with advanced reverse translation and expert assessment. The validity structure analysis using exploratory factor analysis found that the Indonesian language character scale consists of 3 factors that accounts for 73% of the total variance and also consists from 8 factors that account for 73% of total variance. Based on the results, the character scale of the Indonesian language version can be applied using 3 or 8 dimensions.
