Abstract

This study adopted Rasch Measurement Model in identifying the roles and tasks performed by the Malaysian construction management graduate during their employment. This research involved 156 construction practitioners located in Klang Valley area. The Rasch measurement model was used to analyze the items and respondents' reliability, the items' fit, and the item hierarchy. The findings revealed that the items' reliability index was .83, and the respondents' reliability index was .88. Which the result is considerably good and has a sufficient number of items to measure what it needs to measure in the underpinning theory. The results also found four items were misfits with the Rasch measurement model based on the values of outfit/Infit MNSQ and the z-standardized index. Furthermore, after the Rasch analysis, a roles and tasks portfolio with 10- item measure was identified. It is suggested, the academia and industry can refer to this portfolio in developing the performance assessment and future improvement to the training curricula.
