Abstract

This is an unwritten norm that says learning can take place in the job. But learning in tutors' position in the meaning of gaining experience is good but in case of try and error would be crucial. On the other hand there is a belief among practitioners that they assume that who has some experience in architecture is fully equipped for teaching. Since education of art and architecture are sophisticated and they are completely based on tutor and students, tutors and instructors should fully prepare for this position. There are many holistic problems statements and suggestions, but there were no measurement tool to monitor this problem and some executive suggestions. This research for the first time used Rasch momeasurment model and Mini Facet sofware to evaluate tutors' performance in architecture school. As case study second year design studio of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and final submission have chosen which 4 tutur were part of evaluation. The modeling demonstrates this claim that young tutors with less experience and part time academics needs to be have some formal training to gain experience. Graduations from architecture degree or having practical experiences separately are not enough to make one a studio masters. This study also will present some recommendations on some learning workshops and supportive workshops to prepare creative architecture tutors.
