AbstractDue to the great importance of professional identity in the development and success of teachers, recently researchers' attention has been confined to the tensions that may challenge teachers' identities. In spite of the importance of these tensions in the EFL context, only a few studies have addressed them by employing qualitative research methods. The present study aims to investigate the professional identity tensions of EFL teachers by a psychometric scale. Therefore, an instrument was developed and validated for measuring Chinese EFL teachers' professional identity tensions from the Dissonance Theory perspective by adopting the Professional Identity Tension Scale (PITS). To this end, based on the convenience sampling method, 452 Chinese university EFL teachers participated in the study. Exploratory and SEM analyses were performed to identify and confirm the weight of the influencing factors, respectively. The final instrument is a 5-point Likert scale including 30 items measuring six different tensions related to the professional identity. The finding was an indication of the applicability of PITS in the EFL context. In addition, six contributive factors in the EFL teachers' professional identity tensions were detected. Implications of the study and suggestions for further research are discussed.
