It’s crucial to approach writing with positivity. Students who approach writing in a positive way will complete the writing task well. However, little study has been done to examine the validity of the writing attitude scale. This study aims to examine the validity of the writing attitude scale that Podsen established in 1997. The design of this study is a correlational study because its purpose is to find out the writing scale internal consistency. The instrument used is the writing attitude scale (WAS). The population of the study was the Indonesian Language Education Department students in the Faculty of Cultural Studies, Universitas Brawijaya. The data are in the form of numbers in ordinal scale. To analyze the data, the researchers used Cronbach alpha in SPSS 25. The result of the study shows that the internal consistency of Podsen’s writing attitude scale is high. This implies that Podsen’s WAS is applicable and highly reliable in terms of its internal consistency to measure the students’ writing attitude.
