The goal of this study is to develop a measurement tool with proven validity and reliability for determining undergraduates’ feedback literacy levels. The participants of this research consisted of 735 students enrolled in the Sivas Cumhuriyet University Faculty of Education during the 2021-2022 academic year. The pertinent literature was first searched in accordance with the research goal, after which an item pool was created, the items were subjected to expert review, validity and reliability studies were conducted, and finally the scale was given its final form. Data analysis procedures included exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and reliability coefficient calculations. Following the exploratory factor analysis, a scale of 24 items and four factors was obtained. The scale's factors were referred to as "Appreciation", "Positive attitude", "Awareness towards effective feedback", and "Openness to use feedback". The scale's factor loadings ranged from .520 to .812, and the total variance explained was found to be 57.378% as a result of the exploratory factor analysis. The confirmatory factor analysis yielded the following results: X²= 866.53, sd= 246, p= .00, X²/sd= 3.52, RMSEA= .080, SRMR= .069, CFI= .97, NFI= .96, NNFI= .97, RFI= .95, IFI= .97. The calculated values corresponded to good fit in X² /sd ratio, RMSEA and SRMR whereas values in CFI, NFI, NNFI, RFI, and IFI indices indicated perfect fit. As a result, the four-factor structure of the "Feedback Literacy Scale", consisting of 24 items, was confirmed as a model. The Cronbach’s Alpha reliability coefficient was .94 for the entire scale, .88 for the "Appreciation" factor, .88 for the "Positive attitude" factor, .84 for the "Awareness towards effective feedback" factor, and .83 for the “Openness to use feedback”. The "Feedback Literacy Scale" is a valid and reliable scale that measure students' feedback literacy levels.
