The purpose of the research study was to develop a model of internal
quality assurance indicators of faculty of education in Cambodia. The two specific objectives were 1) to construct internal quality assurance indicators of faculty of education in Cambodia and 2) to verify the fit of the model with empirical data. Four experts of higher education and four stakeholders of faculty of education in Cambodia were selected through the purposive sampling technique to determine possible dimensions and indicators of educational quality of faculty of education in Cambodia and 800 teachers, staff, and students of faculty of education in the academic year of 2014-2015 were selected from 20 higher education institutions in Cambodia through the simple random sampling technique to verify the fit of the model. Two types of
research instrument were used, the semi-structured interview form and questionnaire. The content analysis and confirmatory factor analysis were conducted for the two objectives. The results revealed that the model was composed of six dimensions and 22 sub-dimensions with 77 indicators and the model fitted the empirical data with a chi-square of 162.120 on 160 degrees of freedom and a p-value of 0.438, a goodness of fit index (GFI) of 0.982, an adjusted goodness of fit index (AGFI) of 0.971, and a standardized root mean square residual (Standardized RMR) of 0.023.
