Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the validity and reliability of a Malaysian application of the Teachers' Teaching Practices (TTP) instrument. The TTP originally consisted of 25 items with two subscales, for teacher-centered teaching and student-centered teaching. The study involved 254 respondents, all secondary school mathematics teachers, who were required to respond to a 5-point Likert scale. The collected data were analyzed using the SPSS 16.0 and Amos 16.0 software packages. An exploratory factor analysis was conducted prior to performing a confirmatory factor analysis, which showed good correlations for some factors. The results of the two analyses reveal the presence of a two-factor that represents the TTP.
