This study is an attempt to address the fundamental layer of LMTs’ job performance in
Malaysian secondary schools. Hence, this study has investigated the factors affecting
LMTs’ job performance, which have been deemed worthy in rectifying the issues of the
LMTs’ performances in Malaysia. The target population was the sixteen (16) states in
Malaysia. The total population of this study was 2392 and the sample size was three
hundred and thirty-two (332). This study used simple random sampling to collect the
sample. This study employed an online survey, which was a self-administered
(structured) questionnaire, to gather information from the targeted respondents of this
research. Three hundred thirty-two (332) sets of questionnaires were sent out to the
target respondents. The dataset was analyzed using structural equation modelling based
on the PLS approach. The statistical program was the Smart-PLS 3.0. In addition, this
study applied the IBM SPSS Statistics software to generate the descriptive analysis.
From ten (10) hypotheses, seven (7) hypotheses were significant in relation to Skills,
Knowledge, and SRCM Training towards Motivation, Motivation mediated relationship
between Skills, Knowledge and the SRCM Training towards LMTs’ Job Performance,
and also Motivation towards LMTs’ Job Performance. On the other hand, there were no
significant relationships of the Skills, Knowledge, and SRCM Training towards LMTs’
Job Performance. The findings revealed that Motivation is important factor whether
direct relationship or indirect relationships affecting LMTs’ Job Performance. The
major contribution of the study is the development of the proposed framework, which
integrates the School Resource Centre (SRC) and LMTs’ Job Performance based on
research findings. The framework can act as a guide to study individual performance in
other research settings. Thus, the findings of this study present the data,
recommendations, directions for future study, and proposed framework to the LMTs’,
educators, State of Educational Technology Departments, Educational Technology
Division, Ministry of Education of Malaysia, and other policy-making bodies in order
to enhance the LMTs’ knowledge and skills, as well as the systematic training courses
for the LMTs’ job performance.
