ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to develop and validate the self-directed learning readiness test of university students from the viewpoint that it is necessary to measure the individual learner's personality attributes for self-directed learning during the entire learning process. Based on the analysis of previous studies, the concept of ‛self-directed learning readiness' was defined, the components factors were derived, and the content validity was confirmed by experts. The study participants were 406 students enrolled in a four-year university, and the collected data were statistically processed using SPSS WIN 25.0 and AMOS WIN 22.0 programs. The appropriateness of the sample was confirmed by ‛KMO(kaiser-meyer-olkin)'s sample appropriateness value, and Barlett's sphere formation test was performed. Exploratory factor analysis was performed using the principal axis decomposition method and Oblimin rotation. A confirmatory factor analysis was performed using the maximum likelihood, and the fitness indexes such as IFI, TLI, CFI, and RMSEA were confirmed. Convergent validity, discriminant validity, and cross validity were verified. The final ‘Self-Directed Learning Readiness Test’consisted of 3 components and included a total of 40 items. And the total reliability was Cronbach α .949. The ‘Self-Directed Learning Readiness Test’ developed in this study was a test with reliability and validity. Therefore it will be able to confirm the degree of self-directed learning readiness that the university students have for self-directed learning.
