The purpose of the research attempts to develop the leadership scale of both elementary school and junior high students. The participants were the 122 students from 5th grade to 7th grade in Pingtung County, Taiwan. The researchers designed a student’s leadership scale in accordance with the theory of leadership. Then, the scale would be revised by the scholars in this field, after validity and validation. The scale included nine skills: design skills, group skills, basic concept of leadership, problem solving skills, decision making skills, personality, values clarification, oral communication skills, and writing communication skills.The research discovers that the scale has positive internal consistency and each factor in the scale is highly related. Hence, the scale has positive construct validity.
