Abstract

Pretest is a measurement tool used in evaluating the performance of students on any subject knowledge. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether students can perform better in their studies throughout the learning process in the classroom. In particular, the pre-test and post-test are used as a diagnostic and developmental tool for improving teaching and learning in mathematical courses. The sample of this study consists of First Semester Engineering students at the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). The relationship between these tests is also investigated. The pretest and post-test results have revealed that several topics are in need of due attention.
