The aim of this study was to develop a scaling instrument for measuring organizational development level in the Turkish higher education context depending on perceptions of the faculty. The sample consisted of academicians of higher education institutions in the 2020-2021 academic year. Data were gathered in two stages. Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA) was conducted in the first stage and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was conducted in the second stage. The EFA sample consisted of 216 academicians working in 6 higher education institutions while the CFA sample consisted of 501 academicians working in 6 higher education institutions. Maximum Likelihood extraction and Varimax rotation methods were used in EFA. Results of EFA showed that the scale had a four-factor structure with 21 Items. The four-factor structure was confirmed with CFA. Cronbach’s alpha, Spearman Brown, and Guttman (G) were calculated in order to determine the reliability of the scores obtained from the scale. Item discrimination was verified by calculating Item-total correlation and item-remainder correlation. Also, t-test was carried out between upper and lower 27% to check item discrimination. Analyses were conducted making use of IBM SPSS 22 Statistical Package for the Social Sciences and AMOS Analysis of Moment Structure programmes. Overall, the results showed that the structure of the Organizational Development Level Determination Scale was valid. The measurement tool was concluded to have three factors and 18 Items, all in affirmative form.
