Abstract
In the 21
st
century educational landscape, a meaningful learning environment is important.
Meaningful learning encourages dynamic studentsí involvement in learning. Nevertheless,
the dearth of the scholarly literature of measurement for meaningful learning has been found.
Hence, this study proposes to develop and validate a meaningful learning scale (MeLearn).
The study conceptualized meaningful learning in five dimensions. An Exploratory Factor
Analysis (EFA) is used to expose the appropriate items for MeLearn as well as validity and
reliability. The current study chose the cross-sectional research design, while the data was
collected from 289 university students, using a structured survey.This study finalized
MeLearn to thirty-one (31) items yielding five (5) dimensions, i.e., cooperative learning (7
items), active learning (5 items), authentic learning (6 items), constructive learning (6 items)
and intentional learning (7 items). The eigenvalues of the five dimensions of MeLearn fell
within 1.17 and 12.21 with the total variance explained is 51.9 %. The reliability indexes
ranged from 0.838 to 0.885. The rigorous development procedure and analysis of MeLearn
have warranted that the scale is reliable and valid. The research provides insightful
information about the dimensions and items of meaningful learning scale which can be
interpreted more easily and meaningfully.

Key words: Meaningful Learning, Cooperative Learning, Active Learning, Authentic Learning, Constructive Learning, Intentional Learning
