Social anxiety among Indonesian college students is still high. Therefore a screening tool is needed for prevention to be done optimally. Indonesia has a very wide cultural diversity, so it needs to construct social anxiety instrument in accordance with the culture of Indonesian society. The respondents were 664 students from several universities in Malang, East Java, Indonesia. A measuring instrument is considered good if it has high validity and reliability. The results showed that Social Anxiety Scale has content validity with Aiken V value from 0.838 – 0.975. The construct validity was tested by model fit test with parameter value GFI = 0,916; AGFI = 0.880; CFI = 0.938; RMSEA = 0.064. Reliability of the instruments is 0.931. Property-based testing shows that the Social Anxiety Scale has been empirically tested.
