Abstract

This study aims to construct an instrument to measure emotional intelligence and social intelligence and how they can influence students’ learning behavior.A dearth of local instruments in this field has notably been recorded low or insufficient.The study thus recognizes the importance of commoditizing a functional tool which will contribute to furthering local studies along this area.The content validity of the questionnaire was verified using Index Objective Congruence (IOC) by five experts: one Malaysian and four Thai selected based on their academic positions and teaching experience.The questionnaire was revised after their feedback and the total items now comprised 40 items on emotional intelligence, 51 on social intelligence and 51on learning behavior.It was piloted with forty-two first year students from a university in southern Thailand and the Cronbach’s Alpha value was 0.726 for emotional intelligence, 0.828 for social intelligence and 0.892 for learning behavior which suggested the high level of strength of the items in all the variables.
