Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate principal's leadership in the implementation of School-Based Assessment (SBA) in the secondary schools in Klang district. The respondents of this study were 251 Form one and Form two teachers from six secondary schools in Klang. Questionnaires were used to collect data from teachers to provide information for the study. The study indicated the level of principals' instructional leadership in the implementation of SBA; principals' level of knowledge in SBA; supports teachers received from principals during the implementation of SBA were all at the moderate level. The findings revealed that the challenges faced by teachers in the implementation of SBA and the findings can be categorized into eight prominent themes. On the other hand, strategies to enhance the implementation of SBA were classified into five main themes. Overall, the respondents of this study claimed that their level of satisfaction towards their principals' leadership in the implementation of SBA was only at fair level. The result indicated there was a significant difference in the respondents' perceptions towards principals' level of knowledge in SBA based on ethnicity and working experience. In the aspects of supports teachers received from principals during the implementation of SBA, there was a significant difference based on respondents' age. In general, the findings of this study have implications to principals to enhance their leadership for the implementation of SBA, thereby to ensure effective implementation of SBA.
