Abstract

School Based Assessment (SBA) is introduced into to Malaysian education system in
2011. This study focused on the perception of Pre-Service Teachers on the
implementation of SBA (SBA). School-based assessment is a process of monitoring,
evaluating and implementing plans to address perceived weaknesses and strengths of the
school. The purpose of this study is to identify the perception of Pre-Service Teachers
towards SBA in terms of the level of understanding, preparedness as well as the
perceived needs. Data pertinent to the study was collected using a questionnaire which
was adapted from several questionnaires from previous researches. A pilot study was
conducted to provide a basis for modification and perfection of the research instrument.
The data was analyzed using frequencies, percentages, mean and Pearson Correlation
Coefficient. The data collected resulted in a mean of 3.53 for understanding level, 3.10
for preparedness level and 5.02 for the perceived needs of SBA. It was also found that
there is a significant relationship between Pre-Service Teachers’ understanding of SBA
and the preparedness level. In addition, there is also a significant relationship of the
number of SBA related courses attended and the preparedness level of the Pre-Service
Teachers. Overall, it emerged that Pre-Service Teachers have a relatively positive
perception towards the implementation of SBA. Therefore, the implementation of SBA
must be improved in terms of teacher training by providing courses for Pre-Service
Teachers to gain knowledge and increase their preparedness to implement SBA in order
for it to be more effective. It is recommended that future studies to be conducted with
larger sample size, which includes Pre-Service Teachers from all teacher training
institutions in Malaysia in order to produce a representative result which will allow
generalization to be made to a wider population.
