The aim of this study is to develop a Social Responsibility Scale in order to determine the social responsibility perceptions of the students in the fourth class of primary school. In this context, a draft questionnaire was prepared by scanning the relevant literature. The draft form has been submitted to the experts for their opinions. 47 questions are included in the pre-application form of “Social Responsibility Perception Scale ”. The scale was prepared in triple likert type as “always ”, “sometimes” and “never”. The experimental form of the scale was applied to 206 students in four different primary schools in the city center of Batman. Valid data obtained from students were analyzed. SPSS statistical program was used to analyze the data. Before starting the exploratory factor analysis, it was checked whether the data were suitable or not for analysis. For this purpose, Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin sample suitability (743), Barlatt test (2166,316) and the significance of the data (000) were examined. In addition, the factor loadings of the questions in the factors were noticed to be at least 30. As a result of the Exploratory Factor Analysis, a two-dimensional structure consisting of 32 items was reached, namely “effort” and ”self-referral”. The reliability coefficient of the questions collected under two factors was found as 842. The developed scale has been developed to measure the social responsibility of the fourth class students. It may also be used to measure the social responsibility of secondary school students on condition that they use a five-point likert.
