Emergence of a possibility of Internet access at school bears new opportunities and risks too. The tendency to growth of number of the pupils Internet use for non-class-related purposes in the classroom (Cyberloafing) causes concern. Studying of this new phenomenon at the Russian school is complicated due to the lack of reliable and valid techniques. Therefore, adaptation of a scale of a cyberloafing of Y. Akbulut, etc. became an objective of this research. We translated into Russian of 29 items of a technique which were estimated by school students by means of 5-point Laykert scales. Results of application of a scale showed that its items form 5 factors. These are online shopping, accessing online content, activity on social networks, sharing information, socialization. The items of a factor of playing online games did not receive confirmation of validity and internal consistency. They need to be reconsidered. The received factors have sufficient reliability (the Cronbach’s alpha (α) values of all the factors range from 0.77 to 0.881). Work makes a contribution to studying of a cyberloafing at school.
