Initial impact analysis of STEM educational model by innovative sustainable home (iG-HOME) using the rasch measurement model

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Twenty undergraduate students from the Department of Civil and Structure Engineering (JKAS) implemented a STEM Educational Model by innovative sustainable home (iG-HOME) with 40 pupils from Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bandar Tasik Kesuma, Selangor, Malaysia. iG-HOME was introduced as a novel approach in the effort to nurture students’ interest in STEM knowledge and to increase awareness of the environmental in their homes. A combination of STEM and environmental awareness education has given rise to a new approach which will be implemented in schools whilst at the same time passing the knowledge and awareness to the students’ families at home. Students will be exposed to real world problems and how they could use the STEM solutions they learned at school could use to solve these problems. iG-HOME comprises six key components of sustainability in which STEM solutions are to be nurtured and implemented at home. Students’ initial perception towards science and mathematics was encouraging. Perhaps: Based on initial Rasch model assessment, student’s motivation and academic self-concept play important roles in determining their interest in STEM subjects. Students’ perception towards STEM education improved after attending the first series of the iG-HOME program. Their feedback on the developed iG-HOME model is encouraging based on the value of Cronbach Alpha (KR-20) for the first and second series of 0.59 and 0.93, respectively.
