Technology usage in Education 4.0 is highly influenced by Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0)
where the cyber-physical system, Internet of Things (IoT) and the Internet system are adopted. This
phenomenon changes the teaching and learning (T&L) delivery methods. In alignment with the changes in T&L
delivery methods, academicians must prepare themselves with available tools that support education 4.0.
Although most higher education institutions and the player in the industry provide a lot of platforms and tools
that support the education 4.0, readiness of the academicians is important to make sure that the facility provided
are being fully utilized. Hence the need to measure academicians’ readiness in using the technology to ensure
the implementation of education 4.0 can be achieved successfully. For this purpose, we need an evaluated and
validated instrument to be used in measuring Technology Readiness Index (TRI). To achieve this, Exploratory
Factor Analysis (EFA) and Nomology Analysis are used for evaluation and validation of the TRI instrument
adopted from previous studies that has been tested in different population group (non-academician). The EFA of
this study on 19 items resulted in construction of five dimensions namely Optimism (Cronbach’s Alpha = .918),
Innovative (Cronbach’s Alpha = .924), Acceptance (Cronbach’s Alpha = .900), Discomfort (Cronbach’s Alpha
= .696) and Insecurity (Cronbach’s Alpha = .745). The correlation analysis indicates that, all the bivariate
relationship among the components were significantly correlated at least 95% confidence level. From this
analysis, the result shows that the instrument can be considered valid and reliable. This research can be further
extended to measure academician readiness for Education 4.0 tools after confirmatory analysis.

Key words: Technology Readiness Index; Education 4.0; Exploratory Factor Analysis; Nomology Analysis; Academicians.
