In this study, we designed an evaluation form to assess the emotional quotient of Thai university students. The indicators and components of the evaluation were developed from theories and principles regarding emotional intelligence. After the process of content validity assessment, the evaluation consists of 80 indicators in 5 components of Self-awareness, Self-regulation, Self-Motivation, Recognizing Emotions in Others, and Social Skills. In detail, the evaluation was found to have an index of congruence (IOC) of 0.50-1.00, discrimination of 0.472-0.817, and reliability of 0.991. It was later tested for construct validity with 200 Thai university students selected by stratified sampling method. The method of confirmatory factor analysis was employed. The results of the study indicate the evaluation construct validity as the goodness of fit indices passed the criteria and the evaluation model fits the empirical data. Chi – Square = 87.436, df = 73, Chi-Square /df = 1.197, p-value = 0.119, CFI = 0.997, TLI = 0.995, RMSEA = 0.031, and SRMR = 0.021.
