Abstract

This research aims to develop an Android application of terms register in Malay – English for KSSM Physics for Physics student teachers’ use. A need analysis was performed to obtain feedback from ten student teachers about the existence of this application. This application is developed based on the ADDIE instructional model and undergoes a pilot test using a qualitative approach to obtain the initial feedback. After improvement, this application undergoes an application validity process through three experts using face and content validity forms. A quantitative approach was made using the Heuristic Evaluation Questionnaire (HEQ) survey on 30 student teachers to obtain the application usability. This research has produced an application on an Android platform containing 418 extracted terms from Standard Document for Curriculum and Assessment (DSKP) for Form 4 and Form 5 Physics with the application name is FiPhyNeo. FiPhyNeo receives a Content Validity Index (CVI) of 0.93. FiPhyNeo also has obtained high usability (mean = 4.37 ± 0.34). This research developed an Android application called FiPhyNeo containing terms register in Malay – English for KSSM Physics for student teachers that is valid with high usability. This research will benefit the student teachers, current teachers, and students for a fast and easy search of terms register and operates in offline mode to support the teaching and learning of Physics.
