Abstract:

Education is a process in which people learn. Knowledge, skill or ability is gained during the learning process to better equipped students on career opportunities. Learning process takes place in academic institutions in which programs are developed for the various fields. Accreditation to these programs requires the academic institutions to adopt qualification framework. The Engineering Accreditation Council of Malaysia (EAC) adopts the American Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology 2000 (ABET) requirements which promote Outcome Based Education (OBE) learning process. OBE calls for the evaluation of the subjects Learning Outcomes (LO) as specified in the Program Specification. Evaluation method has been largely dependent on students’ performance carrying out tasks in tests, quizzes o¬r submission of assignments. The evaluation on the students’ performance output gives an indication on the students’ achievement of the subject’s LO. However, measurements of the students’ achievement from the observed outcomes remain vague when raw scores are the only means of assessment. Raw scores may not provide true conception on difficulty of tests and or the true ability of students. This article described the measurement and analysis of the Engineering Mathematics LO’s achievement using Rasch Measurement Model. It gives a more meaningful analysis on the students’ achievement.
