State Agricultural Universities of India carry out education in agriculture through degree and
diploma courses with an objective to turn out practical hands with technically sound knowledge and
skill of improved methods. Understanding the importance of agricultural education, effort has been
made to develop a reliable and valid scale to measure the attitude of rural youth towards diploma in
agriculture course. The final scale contained 16 statements and it has been developed by adopting
‘Scale product method’ combining Thurnstone’s technique of equal appearing interval scale and
Likert’s technique of summated rating.
