Abstract

The leadership theories have been extensively discussed and applied in numerous
studies. Teacher leadership for instance is a growing area but most of the studies or research
conducted by scholars typically involved leaders within an organization such as school
principal and not specifically on the teachers themselves. The main purpose of this research is
to determine which leadership styles affect and has the greatest influence on students'
achievement at school. Participants in the research included 100 respondents from school
principals and teachers in secondary school in Jerantut District in Pahang. These participants
were given structured questionnaires and formal interviews with several school teachers were
done. Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ Form 5X) was used to measure leadership
styles practiced by these teachers. The completed questionnaires was statistically analyzed
using SPSS Version 17. The findings obtained from the analysis exhibited that most of the
respondents were female teachers between the ages of 41 to 45 years and have served for 9
years in educational fields. Both analysis used by researchers found that transactional
leadership is very strongly correlated with students' achievements and also has the greatest
influence towards students' achievements in Jerantut, Pahang. Besides, Cronbach Alpha for
all variables chosen were good and acceptable. It means, all the items in a set were positively
correlated with one another.
