This study established the psychometric property of Employee Restiveness Predictive Scale (ERPS) using faculty members of tertiary institutions in Nigeria. Imo State University (IMSU), Federal Polytechnic, Oko, and Institute of Management and Technology (IMT), Enugu, were used at various stages of the study. Relevant literatures and trade press articles reviewed generated 25 initial items which were evaluated using Delphi technique, and 21 items crystallized out. These 21 items were consequently factor-analyzed using varimax rotation. While the factor analysis revealed 6 factors, the Scree plot indicated a one-factor solution. The KMO and the Bartlett's Tests were subsequently conducted resulting in confirmation of the instrument as one-dimensional (KMO = 0.44; Bartlett's Test = 748.04). Eighteen items finally emerged from the factor analysis. The instrument proved robust to measure restive behaviour among faculty members in tertiary education system used in this study.
