Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the effectiveness of academic programs, services and facilities among Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) science graduates in 2008. The perception of the science graduate respondents on the academic programs, services and facilities has been measured by the questionnaire of Higher Learning Institutions Tracer Study 2008. This study consists of 1182 respondents from the science graduates in 2008. The reliability and the factor analysis were used to measure the goodness of the questionnaire. The reliability of the section items were found to be between 0.869 and 0.959 which is considered as having a good reliability. The factor analysis managed to identify the items that contributed to the section scale measured. The score obtained from the scale has been used to determine whether there are significant difference of mean score of academic programs, services and facilities between the demographic factors such as gender, age, ethnicity and academic achievement. The current job status of the graduates was also measured. Comparing the mean methods such as independent t-test and one-way ANOVA were used. The result showed that majority of science graduates have good satisfaction level on the academic programs, services, and facilities offered by UMS. There is some significant difference between demographic factors towards the academic programs, services, and facilities such as in curriculum and gender (p=0.004). Besides that, there are significant different between age group and the influence of campus life (p=0.006). The UMS science graduates have good job performance in the workplace because of the high mean score for the rating of the ability and capability to perform the job (mean=4.1458) and also the evaluation and level of satisfaction with current job (mean=4.0136).
