Electron scattering Coulomb form factors for the single-particle quadrupole transitions in p-shell and sd-shell nuclei have been studied. Core polarization effects are included through a microscopic theory that includes excitations from the core orbits up to higher orbits with $2\hbar \omega $ excitations. The modified surface delta interaction is adopted as a residual interaction. The results are discussed for the ( $1p_{1/2}^{-1} \to 1p_{3/2}^{-1}$) proton transition in $\chem{^{{15}}N}$, ( $1d_{5/2} \to 2s_{1/2} $) neutron transition in $\chem{^{{17}}O}$ and ( $1d_{3/2}^{-1} \to 2s_{1/2}^{-1} $) proton transition in $\chem{^{{39}}K}$. The inclusion of core polarization effects modifies the form factors markedly and describes the experimental data very well in both the absolute strength and the momentum transfer dependence.
