Developed, on the basis of responses from 608 undergraduate students to the 33‐item Marlowe‐Crowne Social Desirability Scale, three short forms of 11, 12, and 13 items. The psychometric characteristics of these three forms and three other short forms developed by Strahan and Gerbasi (1972) were investigated and comparisons made. Results, in the form of internal consistency reliability, item factor loadings, short form with Marlowe‐Crowne total scale correlations, and correlations between Marlowe‐Crowne short forms and the Edwards Social Desirability Scale, indicate that psychometrically sound short forms can be constructed. Comparisons made between the short forms examined in this investigation suggest the 13‐item form as a viable substitute for the regular 33‐item Marlowe‐Crowne scale.
