    Abstract

    Diverse backgrounds affect the degree of school readiness amongst children entering elementary schools in Malaysia. This paper reports the development and findings of a Web Based Ecological Assessment Model used to measure School Readiness. The WEBEASR is based upon five components namely (a) Child Readiness(b)School Readiness (c)Parent Readiness (d) Community Readiness and (e) Global Readiness. Items for the components were developed and validated through expert judgments .The WEBEASR showed high reliability of 0.70. The participants of the study included 100 preschool teachers, 100 parents, 100 elementary teachers and 100 community leaders .Usability tests showed the WEBEASR was user friendly. Descriptions of the five components of readiness were developed. The WEBEASR can be used to complement the more conventional approach in assessing school readiness.
