We are currently witnessing a moment in history in which sustainable education practices are being principally modified by the proliferation of technologies and their wider use in every level of society, which makes necessary their integration into education contexts. This is found in the crosshairs of different institutions, which propose a series of competency frameworks, such as DigCompEdu. This framework provides suggestions for the competences that educators should be trained on under pedagogic-didactic criteria. The present work intends to measure the reliability and validity of the questionnaire DigCompEdu Check-In with the participation of 2262 professors from different public Andalusian universities. The known-groups method was utilized to elucidate if the tool is able or not to discriminate different variables of interest between known groups. The study reveals that the instrument has high indices of reliability, globally, and in the different dimensions that comprise it. Furthermore, it verifies that the instrument is sufficiently robust to discriminate the subjects who are clearly differentiated by variables related with technology. Along this line, the recommendation is given to continue working on the creation of new instruments focused on the mastery of this competency. View Full-Text
