Agus Sugiharto, Wastucitra Cantika, Retno Asti Werdhani


The degree to which a person is seen as having the attitudes and traits necessary for success in studies in the future is known as e-learning management system (EMAS) ready. This study evaluated the EMAS preparation measure for medical students. The study's methodology makes use of the Borg and Gall five-step streamlined research design. The EMAS preparedness scale is measured using ten items and five dimensions. 117 students at the Faculty of Medicine, at a public university in Depok, Indonesia, were given the questionnaire. the relationship between the reliability test, Cronbach's Alpha, and the validity test, Pearson's Product Moment. These are the study's findings: All items had values of α < .05, testing the instrument's validity on 10 item questions indicates that all question items are declared valid with a value greater than r table 0.1816. While test reliability indicates an alpha value of Cronbach > 0.678, the tested instrument can be declared reliable or consistent. According to the results, ten items possessed high validity and reliability.
