A problem that always occurs in the implementation of PBL is inappropriate course assessment, the out-of-context conversation, unbalanced group formation and improper facilitation.In addition, a comprehensive PBL model that considers those factors has not been performed yet.Thus, this paper aims to determine the effective factors that might influence IT students’ perception on the PBL practices.The study involved three (3) main phases: Initial Study, Modeling, and Validation. Four main factors have been identified: PBL Characteristics, Course Assessment, PBL Practices, and PBL Perception. Based on these four factors, a PBL model hasbeen constructed.Four hypotheses were formulated and analyzed.All hypotheses have been proven significantly acceptable.The results show that the PBL Characteristics and Course Assessment factors significantly influence the PBL Practices and indirectly influence the students’ perception on the PBL implementation for IT courses.This model can assist decision makers in enhancing the PBL teaching and learning strategy for IT courses.
