Abstract

This research aimed to (1) develop a local education provision model and educational quality indicators of excellence, and (2) examine the consistency of the local education provision model and the educational quality indicators of excellence with empirical data. The model and the indicators were developed by interviewing 15 experts and reviewed by a focus group discussion of 8 professionals. Then the model conformance with the indicators of excellence was verified, based on the empirical data collected from a sample of 640 administrators of child development centers under the Department of Local Administration nationwide, obtained through multistage random sampling. The consistency of the educational quality indicators of excellence with the empirical data was verified, using the data collected from 780 persons. The data were analyzed by using confirmatory factor analysis of AMOS program. The results were as follows:
1. The local education provision model of excellence consisted of 7 elements and 39 indicators as follows: 1) leading the organization, consisting of 7 indicators; 2) strategic planning, consisting of 5 indicators; 3) focusing on learners and stakeholders, consisting of 5 indicators; 4) measurement, analysis and knowledge management, consisting of 7 indicators; 5) focusing on teachers and personnel, consisting of 4 indicators. 6) process management, consisting of 4 indicators; and 7) outcomes, consisting of 7 indicators.
2. The results of the second order confirmatory factor analysis of local education provision indicators of excellence (EDPEX) showed that the model was well consistent with the empirical data. The chi-squared (gif.latex?\chi2) value was 881.99 at 519 degrees of freedom (df). The probability (p) was 0.00. The GFI was .95. The CFI was .99 and the RMSEA was 0.03. According to these results, all 39 indicators proved to be valid quality indicators of excellence for the Local Education Provision Model and can therefore be used as quality indicators for further local education provision for excellence.
