This study aims to develop and validate the instruments for the assessment of effective mentors in the Work-Based Learning (WBL) setting. The development of the instrument involved three phases: Phase 1, the formation of concept and items; Phase 2, the pilot study; and Phase 3, the actual study and validation of the Effective Mentor framework. The qualitative analysis in Phase 1, identified five constructs relating to the effective mentor framework, which are: role, knowledge, feedback, personal attribute and role models. A total of 115 items were generated based on Krathwohl taxonomy. The Fleiss Kappa agreement coefficient value obtained was 0.82, thus showing a very good level of agreement. However, 3 items were improved and 4 items were dropped from the list of initial items. In Phase 2, a pilot study was conducted on 111 items, involving 30 advanced diploma students in Electronic Engineering (Medical) and Automotive Design and Manufacturing Engineering enrolled in polytechnics under the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia. Data were analyzed using Rasch measurement model approach. At this stage, 12 items were separated and discarded. The remaining, 99 items were administered on 81 students involved in the WBL in the industry and who did not participate in Phase 2. In Phase 3, 4 items were removed and discarded, and only 95 items were maintained. This study used a 5-point Likert scale. The findings resulted in an instruments that have high reliability and validity in assessing mentors in industry. Accordingly, the Effective Mentor framework was developed and validated through Principal Component Analysis to determine the unidimensionality of constructs. The research, in short, proves that these unidimensional constructs validated as true factors measuring the mentors’ effectiveness in the Work-based Learning setting.
