This paper discusses a systematic alternative in evaluating student’s performance at school, specifically in identifying eligible student to be awarded as the best student by adapting a mathematical fuzzy logic approach. The common approach in evaluating student’s performance at school is merely based on the academic achievement. In the real- life situation, students are required to possess other characteristics such as leadership and other soft skills. Thus, in this fuzzy logic approach, the criterions to be considered are the examination score, the roles and responsibilities that the students hold and their behaviour at school. Often, the decision making in the current approach lead to time consuming, unfairness and bias as the assessment of student’s performance encompassing individuals with different thoughts and perceptions. The computational evaluation of student’s overall performance is solved using MATLAB based on the data collected at one of the secondary schools in Mukah. The ‘if then rules’, which is based on human judgement is applied to identify the best student. The result shows that the highest output value scored by the student is 0.608 where the student is likely belonging to the ‘Good’ categories in the membership function. It was found out that this study is able to contribute in solving the problem involving uncertainty and vagueness in the process of selecting the best student to be awarded. The proposed approach has provided the value added in term of differentiating clearly score obtained by each student and their belongingness in the membership function.
