Specific ideologies may be transmitted to learners in foreign language settings through course books, teachers, curriculums, or any other related course components. The present paper focuses on the components of ideology by illustrating the construction of the Inventory of Ideological Components which was developed by the researchers. The first version of the 5-scale Likert type inventory which was comprised of 60 items was administered to 900 respondents at two state universities in Turkey during the winter term of 2018-2019 academic year. Reduction and classification of the items were executed by factor analysis and reliability of the scale was measured. The overall results illustrated Cronbach’s alpha reliability of .93 for the scale. Therefore, researchers in the related area may utilize the instrument to diagnose the ideological components being contained in language teaching curriculum and course books.
