The purpose of this research is to investigate the validity and reliability of thinking style scale amongst agricultural students. A sample of 247 students from Agricultural Colleges of Universities of Tehran, Yasoohj, Ilam, Shahid Bahonar Kerman, and Razi Kermanshah was randomly selected and answered to the scale items. SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Science) and AMOS Graphic software were used to analyze the data. Test-retest reliability and internal consistency showed appropriate reliability of thinking style subscales. Since the reliability of Anarchic style was issuable, with omitting one item the reliability reached .74 and acceptable level. Validity of scale confirmed with face and content validity and construct validity confirmed by Confirmatory factor analysis. About the "Form" dimension, the model assessed twice, with 4 items for Anarchic and 5 items for the same style. The results showed satisfactory fit of the model. According to the findings, thinking style scale is valid and reliable for assessing thinking styles of agricultural students.
