The purpose of the study is to develop an online measurement scale for diagnosing self-directed learning ability for students in Korea. In order to achieve the goal, literature review, case analyses, and experts interview were carried out and finalized the blended-learning based SMMIS model. A total of 1,626 elementary, middle and high school students participated in the scale survey to validate the credibility and validity. Based on these results, an online measurement tool for self-directed learning was developed. The tool can be used in blended-learning environment to maximize its effectiveness. In conclusion, we discussed about implications and strategies for the blended-learning based on self-directed learning program model for young students, and suggested future vision and further research.
