HUERTA PATRACA, Gustavo Antonio; TORRES GASTELU, Carlos Arturo  and  LAGUNES DOMINGUEZ, Agustín. Design and Validation of a Scale to Measure Digital Identity Management. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2021, vol.11, n.22, e069.  Epub Sep 20, 2021. ISSN 2007-7467.

Digital identity management involves a permanent and conscious process of handling personal information and content that is shared on the Internet, protecting privacy and digital reputation. The objective of the article is to describe the design and validation process of the perception scale titled IDentifica2.0, created to measure the management of digital identity, an instrument used for doctoral research in Educational Systems and Environments of the Universidad Veracruzana. The developed Likert scale contains five dimensions: creation of digital identity, visibility, privacy and security on the Internet, digital reputation, and effects of digital identity in the personal sphere. It was applied to 319 students (88% women and 12% women) of the Bachelor of Pedagogy at the Universidad Veracruzana (México). An exploratory factor analysis (AFE) and confirmatory factor analysis (AFC) were performed to determine its validity, which results in the elimination of elements with little or no correlation. As part of the results, an alpha of 0.80 and a Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin (KMO) index of 0.728 were obtained globally for the five subscales. The final version contains 32 items grouped into five factors. The IDentifica2.0 scale has an acceptable level of reliability and validity to measure the management of digital identity, contributing to the analysis of this digital competence
