Most of self-esteem measures mainly focus on an individual's evaluation of his/her personal identity. But social identity is another important aspect of self-esteem. Luhtanen and Crocker (1992) developed the Collective Self-Esteem Scale to assess strength and positivity of social identity. The present study attempted to construct the Japanese version of Collective Self-Esteem Scale. The original 46 items were translated into Japanese and were administered to 347 students. The Japanese version of Collective Self-Esteem Scale consisted of 16 items which were selected from the original items. This scale was different from Luhtanen and Crocker's original scale in the sub-scales, but its high reliability and validity suggested that it can be a useful research tool.
