Abstract

This research was aimed 1) to study the scale, 2) to model the scale and 3) to appraise the quality of the learning behavior scale based on the Threefold Training (trisikkhā) for the trainees of the Kai Wai Sai Course. This was a mixed-method investigation applying the qualitative scale in order to develop an instrument of a qualitative research. The key informants were the 7 course organizers through in-depth interviews and 360 trainees of the Kai Wai Sai Course in the 2020 Academic Year  based on Hair et al (1998) sampling. The instruments in this research comprised 1) the in-depth interview format and 2) the trisikkhā-based learning scale model. Its statistical applications for analyses were descriptive statistics, the Pearson’s Correlation and the second order confirmatory factor analysis. The research results were as follows:


  1. The guidelines for measuring learning behavior based on the threefold learning principle (trisikkhā) for the trainees of Kai Wai Sai Course, it was found that the training and caretaking of the trainees by the course organizers/ keynote speakers must be friendly and approaching trainees for easing them to embrace and understand their Dhamma training. In the follow-up and evaluation, the camp would measure trainees’ performance with each camp’s indicators through collecting them from the teachers and the chief of the agency. In organizing the training, it should meet the current situation whereas its course development should compile with the current context by exemplifying with the modern and updated contents with national situation of the time so as to more clearly teach Dhamma.

            2). The learning behavioral scale based on the threefold learning principle (trisikkhā) for the trainees of Kai Wai Sai Course maintained 3 main components, i.e. 1) the morals learning behavior, 2) the meditative learning behavior, and 3) the intellectual learning behavior. The learning behavior model contained 8 indicators, i.e. 1) good speech, 2) honest actions, 3) honest living, 4) possession of perseverance, 5) possession of conscious self-direction, 6) possession of self-determination, 7) possession of positive attitude and 8) possession of positive thinking. 


     3) The results of quality examination on the developed learning behavioral scale model based on the threefold learning principle (trisikkhā) for the trainees of Kai Wai Sai Course through applying the second order confirmatory factor analysis (BSMW) were the model was conformed with the empirical data witnessed through the chi-square value (X2 = 21.96, df = 15, p =.1088), which was significantly differed from zero. The Goodness of Fit Index (GFI) was .985, the Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index (AGFI) was .96, and the remainder mean square root index (RMR) was .01 which denoted that the model agreed with the empirical data.
