The purpose of this study is to develop a Behavioural Assessment Instrument (BAI) for universities students. The constructs of the instrument was developed based on Muhammad Abdullah Darraz’s behavioural classification and the syllabus on Islamic behaviour. The instrument was also developed through literature reviews and interviews with four content experts and six practicing specialists. Seven constructs were established including behaviour towards Allah S.W.T., the Messenger s.a.w., the self, the family, the community, the environment and the nation. A total of 243 items were created based on the Instrument Construction Table. 318 students were selected to be involved in this study. The Nvivo version 7.0 and Winsteps version 3.68.2 software were used to analyse the data. Items in the BAI constructs were examined using Rasch measurement model. Based on the Rasch measurement model analysis, 69 items were removed. The results showed a high level of reliability index of 0.98 and respondents’ reliability index of 0.98. Assessment of the items suggested that 174 out of 243 items were suitable for behavioural assessment. The item and respondent separation indexes were found to be at an acceptable level. All the items fit with the Rasch measurement model based on the test of PTMEA CORR. Findings of the study showed that instrument was unidimensional. The GDIF analysis also indicated that all items of the instrument were not significant and suitable to be used. Hence, the results of the study suggested that 174 items could be used in the Behavioural Assessment Instrument (BAI).
