Kajian ini bertujuan melihat aspek kebimbangan ujian, motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik dalam kalangan pelajar yang mengambil kursus bahasa Arab di UiTM, Shah Alam Malaysia dalam konteks kemahiran lisan. Objektif kajian ialah untuk melihat (1) tahap kebimbangan ujian, motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik pelajar dan (2) tahap korelasi antara kebimbangan ujian, motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik pelajar dalam konteks kemahiran lisan bahasa Arab. Kajian ini berbentuk kuantitatif dan menggunakan instrumen soal selidik pembelajaran kendiri (self-regulated learning) yang diubah suai daripada skala The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ). Teknik persampelan rawak berstrata (stratified random sampling) digunakan dan melibatkan seramai 279 orang sampel. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan bahawa (1) tahap kebimbangan ujian semua pelajar adalah sederhana manakala motivasi intrinsik dan ekstrinsik pelajar berada pada tahap tinggi.

Abstract

The Arabic course in MARA University of Technology (UiTM) is an elective offered to first degree students. The purpose of this study was to investigate the level of test anxiety, intrinsic and extrinsic motivations among students who enrolled in the Arabic courses in UiTM Shah Alam, Malaysia from the oral Arabic perspective. The objectives of the study were to investigate (1) the level of test anxiety, intrinsic and extrinsic motivations among students and (2) the level of correlations between test anxiety, intrinsic and extrinsic motivations from oral Arabic perspective. This was a quantitative study and used a questionnaire adapted from The Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ). The sample of this study consisted of 279 students who were chosen based on stratified random sampling technique. The study found that (1) the level of test anxiety among students was moderate while the level of both intrinsic and extrinsic motivations were high. (2) Extrinsic motivation was found to be positively and significantly correlated to intrinsic and the correlation value was moderate. On the other hand, there were no significant correlations found between both motivations and test anxiety. This study suggested some suggestions to be implemented in order to overcome the test anxiety among students and to sustain the level of both motivations in Arabic teaching and learning.

Keywords: test anxiety, intrinsic motivation, ekstrinsic motivation, oral Arabic skills, self-regulated learning, MSLQ
