The purpose of this article is to show the methodological route carried out to develop a questionnaire to estimate the educational digital skills of students of a Mexican public university as well as to show evidence of construct validity through structural equation modeling. The development of a questionnaire based on four dimensions is described: management of information, communication, organization and portable technology. We draw on expert consultation for the delimitation of the factors, the development of reagents and the estimation of an indicator of unambiguity. A preliminary analysis based on structural modeling of equations is applied to obtain evidence of validity of the developed scale. The questionnaire was applied to a random sample of 350 students. Additionally, we propose a conceptual model for the construct of digital skill, which showed the expected congruency between the observed variables and the proposed structure. After an initial application we were able to obtain acceptable values in three of the goodness of fit indices (RMSEA, GFI and AGFI), with the exception for Chi-square and possibilities were identified for adapting the scale based on the modification rates derived from the AMOS program. The information obtained will improve the proposed scale. Determining the digital skills of the students is a current interest in the search of innovation and efficiency of educational activities.
