Abstract

Recently, virtual communication has become a standard tool due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Likewise online communication is emerging as an essential competency. In this study, we aimed to develop a comprehensive and systematic digital literacy measurement tool reflecting the changes and needs of society. Construct variables were drawn by characterizing existing digital literacy measurement tools. Thirty-four items corresponding to the concept of each variable were developed. The developed measurement tool was then evaluated in the form of surveys from university students belonging to the digital native generation, and the reliability and validity were performed through exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. The digital literacy measurement tool contained five sub-factors and twenty-five questions. In addition, hierarchical regression analysis was performed to verify the predictive validity of digital literacy sub-factors. Based on these findings, the implication of future research is discussed.
