Abstract

The objectives of this study were to develop a model for academic management and to evaluate the applicability of the model for academic management in public primary schools under the Nakhon Pathom District Educational Service Area Office 2. This included a qualitative and quantitative phase. Five experts were invited for an interview on the scopes and aspects of academic management for public primary schools. Quantitative data on the feasibility and current situation were collected from 316 participants. The qualitative part was analyzed using content analysis, while the quantitative data were analyzed using frequency, percentages, mean, standard deviation and paired t-test. The findings revealed that the model of academic management consists of: curriculum development; learning process development; assessment and evaluation development; research for education development; media, innovation, and technology development; learning resources development; education supervision; education counselling; internal quality assurance system development; academic knowledge promotion for communities; academic development cooperation with other schools; and promotion of academics to individuals, families, organizations, agencies, and other schools. Each aspect must use the PDCA Cycle, which starts with plan, do, check, and act. The feasibility of the model was evaluated. The evaluation revealed that the sample stated that all the twelve aspects of academic management can be implemented at the highest level, whereas the data on the current situation of academic management revealed that schools’ academic management work is performed at a high level. The research recommends implementing the academic management model from this study since it could improve the school’s academic management.
