The aim of this study is to develop an attitude scale that will help to determine attitudes of secondary school students towards the use of augmented reality applications in education. With this aim, the Augmented Reality Applications Attitude Scale (ARAAS), which is developed in this study, has been presented. The ARAAS's validity and reliability studies have been done with 167 students (84 male, 83 female), which are studying in the 5th grade of 7 different secondary schools in Erzurum. As a result of the exploratory factor analysis applied to provide construct validity of the scale, a construct consisted of 15 items and 3 factors has been attained. The results of confirmatory factor analysis carried out to understand whether this construct adjusts very well to this construct's sample data obtained has shown the adjustment to the sample that the scale applied on is at a reasonable level. The ARAAS's internal consistency reliability coefficient has been found as .83 for the whole scale. Those results show that ARAAS is a valid and reliable measurement tool.
