Determine the psychometric properties of lifelong learning scale among Sem-nan university students

The purpose of this study was to determine the psychometric properties of lifelong learning scale (lls) among Semnan University students. the selected sample in this correlation study included 417 students (183 male&243 female) who were randomly selected using stratified method and completed study scales. Exploratory factor analysis with Principal Component Analysis method was conducted to determine the construct validity. The principle component analysis revealed that the lls consist of two factors: “self-direction and self-evaluation” and “application of knowledge and skills”. Also, data analysis showed that internal consistency of self-direction and self-evaluation factor was 0/47 and application of knowledge and skills factor was 0/63. The test- retest reliability was 0/81 and 0/70, respectively. The negative correlation between scores of lifelong learning and academic burnout (r = - 0/46; p ≤ 0/01) represents the divergent validity of the questionnaire and positive correlation with deep learning (r = 0/52; p ≤ 0/01) represents the convergent validity. There was significant relationship between lifelong learning and achievement motivation (0/49) and there was positive correlation between lifelong learning and academic achievement (0/16). Therefore lifelong learning questionnaire has suitable construct validity, convergent and divergent validity and test- retest reliability, but due to insufficient internal consistency, this scale needs to be more investigating, and it is recommended that future studies be reviewed and the internal consistency of the questionnaire will be improved by increasing the number of questions
