The present study was aimed to construct, develop and standardize a knowledge scale on use & operation of ICT in agriculture and allied areas by rural women. After reviewing different related literature, the researcher outlined a scale and after that analyzing the content framed 80 items related to the course. The prepared 80 items were revised and edited carefully and then given to a panel of experts in the field on Information Communication Technology (ICT) and extension specialist for their valuable suggestions and corrections to ensure its quality. Thus the content validity of the tool was established. After seeking the opinion of the experts some of the items were reframed. Finally, 40 items were considered to form initial battery for developing a standardized knowledge test. These items were subjected to item analysis. After which, a total 22 items were remained for the final study. Simple random sampling method was adopted for the selection of respondents for standardization of knowledge check. Item Analysis was done by calculating the Difficulty Index and Discrimination Index level of the 40 items.
