This study is aimed at developing a scale (Parents' Evaluation of Responsible Behaviors of 5-6 Year Old Children) for measuring parents' evaluation of their 5-6 year-old children's responsible behaviors. The construct validity of the scale was tested by Factor Analysis. Factor analysis determined that the scale can be clustered under 10 factors. Item total correlations were calculated and independent samples t-test was conducted in order to determine the presence of a meaningful difference between the top and the bottom 27% groups. The reliabilities of the scale and their subscales were analysed by using Cronbach Alpha technique. Cronbach Alpha of the whole scale is 0,92. And cronbach alpha analysis of the subscales were also so high. Also split half and test-retest reliability analyses were done. 1st Section reliability was found as Alfa: 0,83 and 2nd Section reliability as Alfa: 0,90. The results showed that the scale had good psychometric properties and thus could be used to assess the responsibility behaviors of 5-6 year olds.
