Abstract


Nowadays, the standard of professional education, interior architecture and interior design at higher education in Thailand must meet the certification criteria from the Professional Council. However, the expected learning outcomes results in the past studies has not studied the components of expected learning outcomes that are explicit and consistent with the 20-Year National Strategy. The researchers therefore aim to study such components to lead to the development of a standard measurement model to further expected learning outcomes. The researchers synthesized the initial components through the document to create and develop a questionnaire to evaluate the level of performance by estimating 5 levels and collect data with the senior students in the curriculum that has been approved by the Professional Council. Divided into 362 samples in the analysis of survey elements and 364 samples in Confirmatory Factor Analysis by Cluster Random Sampling from state and private universities. The survey component analysis resulted in 6 components along with confirmatory factor analysis of empirical component. The results of the sequence analysis of weight components from descending order as follows: Cognitive for profession skill (CP)=.96 Interpersonal relationship and responsibility skill (IR)=.89 In numerical communication and information technology skill(NC)=.87 Profession future of Thailand skill (PF)=.85 Knowledge for Professional practice skill (KPP)=.73 Moral and ethical skill (ME) =.67.
