Abstract

Evaluation of the quality of Arabic education in Malaysia needs to be conducted on a continuous basis to achieve the objectives of Arabic education. Student Evaluation of Education Quality (SEEQ) was proposed as one of the evaluation instruments of the quality of Arabic education. This study aimed to evaluate the usability of SEEQ in the context of Malaysian education, including its validity and reliability based on the collected local data. In this study, a total of 491 samples from Islamic National Secondary Schools (SMK(A)) throughout Malaysia were involved. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and Cronbach's alpha for internal consistency were performed using AMOS and SPSS.A new model of SEEQ (8 constructs and 25 of 31 items were retained after modifications) with good readings off it indices and alpha value was obtained. This study suggests using the new model of SEEQ as the indicator of the quality of Arabic education in Malaysia.
