The "metaverse," which bridges augmented and virtual reality as mixed reality and includes technological phenomena such as artificial intelligence, continues to be an agenda topic. It is foreseen that the concept in question will accelerate the changes in education and teaching activities, as in many other fields. In this research, a measurement tool was developed to determine pre-service teachers' and teachers' beliefs about education in the metaverse (meta-education), especially considering the concept of the "metaverse" that entered our lives with the information age. During the development process of the measurement tool, an item pool consisting of 59 items was created by scanning the relevant literature. The opinions of five experts were received for the draft scale. Two items were added to the draft scale, and ten items were removed based on expert feedback. The scale was arranged as 41 items before the application. During the pilot application process, 203 were collected. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was used for the scale's construct validity. The EFA result shows that the scale consists of 22 items and a single factor, and 44% of the total variance is explained. The item-rest correlations on the scale ranged from .64 to .77. The Cronbach alpha coefficient of the scale was found to be .90. Based on these findings, the scale can be used to determine adults' beliefs about meta-education.
