ABSTRACT

This study validated the Korean New Media Literacy Scale (K-NMLS)—a Korean adaptation of the NMLS by Koc and Barut (2016)—and its abbreviated version, the Korean New Media Literacy Scale Short Form (K-NMLS-SF). Based on data from an online survey of 322 Korean adults in their 20s, confirmatory factor analysis suggested that a two-factor structure (consumption and prosumption) adequately represented the data. We confirmed criterion validity through an analysis of the associations between K-NMLS and digital competence-related constructs. To enhance the utility of K-NMLS while preserving its core purpose, a 9-item version, K-NMLS-SF, was validated using the same procedure as for the K-NMLS. The implications of validating K-NMLS and K-NMLS-SF were discussed.
