Abstract

Abstract: study investigates the mediating role of professional learning in the relationship between learning-centered leadership and the attitudes of Malaysian lecturers toward assessment practices. This study utilized a quantitative approach and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) for data analysis, our research reveals that professional learning serves as a full mediator in the relationship between learning-centered leadership and lecturers' attitudes regarding assessment practices. The attitude construct accounts for 41% of the total variance explained by learning-centered leadership and professional learning. We engaged 382 lecturers from diverse Malaysian universities, employing a multistage sampling technique. Participants completed a comprehensive questionnaire assessing their perspectives on learning-centered leadership, professional learning, and assessment practices. SEM facilitated the examination of both direct and indirect relationships among these variables. These findings hold significant implications for educational institutions and policymakers. Promoting learning-centered leadership within academic settings can enhance professional learning opportunities for lecturers, thereby positively shaping their attitudes toward assessment practices. Recognizing the pivotal role of professional learning can guide the development of impactful professional development initiatives, fostering the advancement of lecturers' skills in assessment practices.
