Measuring information intelligence is especially important in information societies. The present study aimed to identify indices and measures effective and design a model for measuring information intelligence. The research used a mixed method to achieve objectives. Data collection tools included the study of scientific literature and interviews. The research population included related published literature related to scientific theories, information science experts, and psychology experts. Based on the research findings, 14 indices and 97 measures were identified as effective for measuring information intelligence in two dimensions of management and information retrieval. After weighing and prioritizing the indices, finally, a model is presented for measuring information intelligence. From the findings, it is concluded that in the information society, officials should first determine their information strategies and then address the strategic goals of the information society. One of these strategic goals can be to increase the level of information intelligence of individuals, organizations, and society. To do this, effective indices must be identified for measuring and strategies to increase the level of information intelligence of the target community. It is suggested that this be one of the priorities of an information society.
