A scale was developed to measure the perception of Agriculture University teachers and students about utilization of ICT tools in Agricultural Education by following the Liker’s summated rating scale. Based on the review of literature and discussion with the experts, 124 statements were prepared on dimensions. Relevancy rating was sent to 250 scientists and extension specialists working in research institutes of Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR), State Agricultural University and development Departments for critical evaluation of statements on five point continuum. Seventy five judges sent in time were analyzed and aggregate of 100 statements were selected by finding the relevancy weightage scores (RWS) equal or more than 0.75 and mean relevancy score of 3.00 were selected for the item analysis. In item analysis the selected statements were administered to 40 teachers and 40 students in non-sample area in University of Agricultural Sciences, Dharwad. Finally a total of 38 statements were selected for the study based on ‘r’ values (> 1.75) they were included in the final scale. The ‘r’ value of the scale was found to be 0.86, which was significant at one % level indicating the high reliability. The scale developed was found to be reliable and valid, hence it is recommended to use. To study, utilization of ICT tools in Agricultural Education.
