Abstract
The objective of this case study is to explore the situations of supervision practices between members of school management teams and teachers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The conceptual framework developed on the “Model of Supervisory Practice” by Pajak (1990), then, the questionnaires were set up with qualified validity and reliability. 237 (95.6%) managers and 302 (82.3%) teachers participated in the survey randomly, then, the primary data were analyzed by professional statistic research methods. The research results are as following: Firstly, the overall level of supervision practices by managers’ viewpoint (mean = 4.213) is at very high level (4.21—5.00), meanwhile, teachers’ viewpoint (mean = 3.705) is at high level (mean = 3.41—4.20). Secondly, based on the demographic factor of gender, managers don’t have significant differences among five dimensions; in contrast, male teachers have higher level of mean scores than female teachers significantly, on the dimension of staff development (t = 2.097, p = 0.037), instructional programs (t = 3.262, p = 0.001) and motivating & organizing (t = 2.334, p = 0.024). Thirdly, based on the demographic factor of role currently hold, principals have higher mean scores than senior assistants significantly on the dimensions of communication (t = 2.555, p = 0.011), instructional programs (t = 2.160, p = 0.032), motivating & organizing (t = 2.440, p = 0.015) and curriculum (t = 3.587, p = 0.000).
