A standardized test was developed to measure the extent of knowledge of dairy farmers towards climate variability. Initially 36 items list was prepared which were related to general aspects of climate variability and its effect on animals were selected with discussion of experts from the ICAR-National Dairy Research Institute, Karnal. Further it was processed by pretesting and item analysis method with using difficulty index and discrimination index, as based on the result obtained after calculation some of the items excluded for next step and those items which satisfied the given standard criteria such items are again subjected to point bi serial correlation and eventually items which shows the significance value were remained for the final test so in total 18 items were selected for the final Knowledge test.

Keywords: Climate variability, Knowledge, Northern dry of Karnataka, Point-bi-Serial Correlation.
