This study aims to develop a scale to determine the social desirability levels of individuals. Participants consisted of a total of 852 students, ranging in age from 17 to 45 (Mage= 21.33, Sd= 2.32), 527 female (62%), 325 male (38%). Within the scope of the research, the language, meaning and content validity of the scale items were provided. After the pre application, the final form of the scale was applied to 426 students and exploratory factor analysis was conducted. It was determined that the factor structure obtained as a result of the analysis explained 52.29% of the total variance. Confirmatory factor analysis of the structure consisting of two factors and 15 items was applied to a different sample of 426 people, and the results showed that the factors showed structural adjustment (χ2/df= 2.50, GFI= .93, CFI= .92, AGFI= .91, RMSEA= .06). Cronbach Alpha Internal Consistency coefficient was used for reliability analysis. As a result of the analysis, the reliability coefficient of the whole scale was .84, the acceptance sub-dimension was .85 and the attention-getting dimension was .75. As a result of the study, it was found that the resulting 15-item scale is a valid and reliable measurement tool that can be used to determine the social desirability levels of individuals.
