Reliability of geographic information system-spatial thinking skills (GIS-STS) module

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This is a pilot study designed in establishing the reliability of the ‘Geographic Information System’ module-Spatial Thinking Skills (GIS-STS) synthesized by the researcher. This module is composed of four sub-modules: Geography Skill, Physical Geography, Human Geography and Area Geography. The research outline adapted in this study is an experimental design. Additionally, the respondents of this study concerned 30 Form Two students in one of the schools in Jempol District, Negeri Sembilan. The subjects of this study were selected using random sampling. Respondents followed Learning and Facilitation (L&F) by following the activities as set out in the module and then answered the reliability questionnaire of GIS-STS module created by the researcher by using reliability analysis. The findings show that the GIS-STS module has a significant reliability value of reliability coefficient of .873. The module is anticipated to be implemented as an effective L&F material especially in enhancing STS and attracting students to Geography subjects.
