Keywords: pencapaian awal matematik, tempoh berada di prasekolah, jantina, kanak-kanak prasekolah


Kajian ini bertujuan untuk mengenal pasti tahap pencapaian awal Matematik kanak-kanak, mengenal pasti kesan tempoh di prasekolah dan jantina terhadap pencapaian awal Matematik dalam kalangan kanak-kanak prasekolah. Instrumen kajian ini merupakan Pencapaian Awal Matematik (Ginsburg & Baroody, 2003) berdasarkan Kurikulum Standard Prasekolah Kebangsaan. Seramai 1108 orang kanak-kanak prasekolah yang berumur 4+ dan 5+ terlibat dalam kajian ini. Statistik deskriptif, ujian-t bebas dan ujian Ancova menggunakan SPSS versi-21 dengan markah ujian pra sebagai kovariat digunakan. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan pencapaian awal Matematik kanak-kanak berada pada tahap purata dan tidak terdapat perbezaan yang signifikan dalam pencapaian awal Matematik kanak-kanak mengikut jantina. Terdapat perbezaan yang signifikan dalam pencapaian awal Matematik kanak-kanak mengikut tempoh di prasekolah. Kajian lanjutan tentang tempoh berada di prasekolah terhadap pencapaian awal Matematik diperlukan untuk menjelaskan dapatan ini.
