Emotional literacy is described as being aware of our own feelings in order to improve our personal power and life quality as well as people's life quality around us. In this study, the aim is to develop a Likert scale which measures people's emotional literacy in order to be used both in descriptive and experimental researches. Related literature was reviewed in accordance with this aim. Composition study was conducted and assessed with a group of experts in the field of psychological counseling (n = 25) regarding emotional literacy. Initial form which consists of 52 items were administered to 272 university students who were receiving education from different faculties in a university located at the west of Turkey. Afterwards, the final form which contains 34 items was applied to 345 university students. According to the results of explanatory and confirmatory factor analysis, the scale has five dimensions with 34 items. The Cronbach Alpha Coefficient is 0.80; test-retest validity which was repeated twice in 15 days' time with 45 students has been calculated as 0.89. In conclusion, a reliable and valid scale which can be used to measure people's emotional literacy was developed.
