In this paper an attempt was made to analyze the effect of items direction (positive or negative) on the Alpha Cronbach reliability coefficient and the Split Half reliability coefficient in Likert scale. The descriptive survey research method was used for the study and sample of 510 undergraduate students were selected by used random sampling technique. A scale developed by Sobhei Hamdan & Mohammed Jehad (2007) was used by the investigator to access attitude of students towards undergraduate study. The findings of the study revealed that: (1) there is no effect of items direction (positive, negative, half positive and half negative and randomly) on the Alpha Cronbach reliability coefficients in Likert scale, and (2) the results also indicated that there is no effect of items direction (positive, negative, half positive and half negative and randomly) on the Spilt Half reliability coefficients in Likert scale.
