ABSTRACT

Teachers' leadership is one of the important factors that influences students' motivation and learning success. When teachers have good leadership, students will be more motivated in learning. Thus, it will ultimately have an impact on students' learning outcomes. Al-Islam Tambakbayan Elementary School Yogyakarta is one of the schools that pays attention to the importance of teacher leadership. The leadership paradigm that has been developed is not just principal-centered, but also distributed to teachers. This study aimed to examine the effect of teachers' leadership on students' motivation in al-Islam Tambakbayan Elementary School, Yogyakarta. This research was an ex post facto quantitative study. The population in this study were 160 students and 25 teachers of Al-Islam Tambakbayan Elementary School. Based on stratified random sampling technique, 50 students were obtained as sample. The sample of 25 teachers was obtained through the sample technique of saturation quota. The instrument was teacher leadership questionnaire and student motivation. Data analysis techniques were the classic assumption test and simple regression test. The prerequisite tests were normality test, multicollinearity test, and heteroscedasticity test. The results showed that teacher leadership and student motivation in Al-Islam Tambakbayan Elementary School were in the weak category. Based on inferential statistical test, the value of R = 0.065 (R < 0.199) was obtained. It means that there is a significant influence between teachers' leadership and students' motivation. The findings of this study recommend the importance of a paradigm shift in education leadership in the school. It is because strengthening teachers' leadership has a positive effect on students' motivation, and vice versa.
