CALIBRATION CHALLENGES AMONG PRE-SERVICE TEACHERS IN INSTITUTE OF TEACHER EDUCATION (IPG) USING RASCH MODEL
Challenges faced by pre-service teachers in Malaysia have the potential to cause stress and disruption in their daily routine. This study aims to calibrate pre-service teachers' challenges undergoing the Bachelor of Education Program (BEdP) at the Institute of Teachers’ Education (IPG). A total of 73 pre-service respondents were selected using random cluster sampling techniques. The survey study design and the questionnaire were used. 58 Items comprised eight primary constructs such as attitude development, daily teaching plan preparation, teaching materials, task load, the relationship between the school and students, advisor’s supervision, and facilities were established based on literature review. The Rasch Model's logit values with SPSS 25.0 and WINSTEPS 184.108.40.206 software were used to calibrate key challenges by pre-service teachers. The findings showed that teaching materials were the most significant challenge faced by pre-service teachers, followed by task load and attitude development.
