Abstract :
This paper presents a theory-based evaluation of the School-based Assessment (SBA), an assessment system which is conducted by subject teachers in schools to assess students cognitive (intellect), affective (emotional and spiritual) and psychomotor (physical) aspects. The implementation of SBA is in line with the National Philosophy of Education and the Standards-based School Curriculum in Malaysia. A survey was employed within the theoretical framework of the CIPP Evaluation Model. Findings from the survey suggest that all 376 teachers are quite satisfied with the input received from the governments. Regarding process dimension of evaluation, the implementation goes well but could still be strengthened. And looking at the product dimension of evaluation when system is implemented, teachers are satisfied with the students’ attitude and knowledge but not really with the motivational level especially the students’ reading interest. The study thus provides some support for the effectiveness of the SBA system implementation and for the theoretical model that is proposed.
