The development and foster of Research spirit is one of the formal education system goals that will bring change and innovation for students. The purpose of study was construction a tool for measuring student's Research spirit .The method of study was Descriptive (Survey- testing). For the first stage of study, dimensions of research spirit were identified by review of theoretical foundations of research spirit and developed items for pilot study. A sample of the 1425 girl students were selected by probability and non-probability Sampling (cluster-convenience sampling). The validity of questionnaire was studied by Content validity, professional judgment, Factor analysis and criterion validity and the reliability of questionnaire was calculated by test-re-test and internal consistency of Cronbach's alpha. Analysis of questions was determined by the correlation with scores of the scale and impact of the removal of questions on variance and reliability. Correlation of Convergent validity of the scale with Critical thinking orientation scale was 0/45 (sig ≤ 0.001). The result of factor analysis showed fourth factors: Perseverance, impulsive practice management, curious and the ability to perform team working. The reliability of scale by using test-retest after 15 days was 0.80 and the internal consistency with Cronbach's alpha was 0.81. Therefore, according to results of reliability and validity, the scale of Research spirit can be used by researchers as appropriate test.
