Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify the level of teacher-student interaction, the suitability of learning environment, learning commitment and learning comfort among Biology students. In addition the contribution of teacher-students interaction, learning commitment and learning environment towards learning comfort were also explored. This quantitative study used a survey method whereby four types of questionnaires were used: 1) Teacher-StudentInteraction Inventory, 2) Classroom Learning Environment Inventory, 3) Learning Commitment Inventory, and 4) Learning Comfort Inventory. A total of 325 Form Four Biology students from Perak were involved in this study. Data were analysed using descriptive and inferential analysis. The outcomes of the study revealed that the level of teacher-student interaction, the suitability of learning environment, learning commitment and learning comfort are high. In addition, results also indicated that there were no significant differences in learning environment, teacher-student interaction, learning commitment and learning comfort based on location, while there was a significant difference based on gender. The result of this study implies that teacher-student interaction, the suitability of learning environment, learning commitment and learning comfort should be given due attention to improve the effectiveness of learning and teaching Biology.
