Proposed Model

The proposed model of new product of education plan has to combineall the riders in one plan and the name be changed to Economic Educa-tion Plan Takaful. The rider should include health, accident, hospitalcosts, loss an effort to work, critical illnesses, education, death benefit,death coverage and also pension. Life insurance or family takaful isneeded for everyone in the modern, so the product must affordable toevery category of income earners.

Objectives of the Study

This paper exposes the study of Wan Muhamad Amir W. Ahmad etal on the application of the Ordinary Logistic Regression Model for aNew Intergration Education Plan Takaful. This paper aims to:

• present the Ordinal Logistic Regression Analysis of the new proposemodel;

• present the Correlation Analysis between items of the questionnaireused in the study; and

• Investigate the association between the capabilities of buying takafulinsurance with other related predictors.

The researcher used questionnaire, containing 10 questions which coverthe age, status, level of education, types of jobs, monthly salary, thenumber of children in the household, the cost of the new product ineducation plan takaful, and etc. The required sample size was 385, butthe researchers used 410 respondents. Reliability in the questionnairestudies were also tested repeatedly. In addition, the researchers usedOrdinal Logistic Regression to investigate the association between thecapabilities of buying takaful insurance with other related predictors.

After interviewing the 400 respondents using the questionnaire, almostall the respondents agreed that the integration model of education plantakaful could attract all categories of income earners into buying it. Themost attractive aspect about this model, the plan offers affordable pricefor all categories of income earners and it also includes almost completeriders. This research has proved that the new idea of integration modelin education plan takaful has been accepted by all categories of incomeearners.
