The aim of the study is to develop a reliable evaluation criterion to assess the readiness of the education institutions for online education. In this regard, we adopted Lokuge et al. (2019) questionnaire to evaluate universities preparedness in Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Based on that, content analysis has been fulfilled with the academicians in the region. The results were analyzed through validity and reliability methodologies. Lastly, the independent samples t-test has been employed to compare the readiness of public and private universities in the region. Therefore, the prior aim of the current study was to develop a questionnaire to test the readiness of the universities for online education. Secondly, we aimed to test the questionnaire comparing the readiness of public and private universities. It was found that the adopted questionnaire worked properly in the education field. Therefore, the questionnaire can be used in all educational institutions. Secondly, there is a lack of study in the readiness for online education field after Covid-19. Hence, the current study develops a methodology to measure online education at the universities using a state of art questionnaire.
