The aim of this current pilot study is to develop a self-report measure of emotional intelligence specifically for school children aged between 14 to 17 years of age. For this purpose, a list of 50 items including items from tested questionnaire relating to emotional intelligence was framed. Exploratory factor analysis was used to extract 5 factors of emotional intelligence based on Daniel Goleman model. The sample respondents were 248 Government school children with age ranging between 14 to 17 years of age. A total of 140 ninth grade and 108 eleventh grade children with equal number of boys and girls i.e., 124 participated in the current study. The items were further validated using face, content, and construct, concurrent and convergent validity. Cronbach's alpha scale was used to find the reliability of the emotional intelligence self report measure.
