Moral values are the standards of moral development which are vital importance to be embedded to everyone, especially the students. However, according to previous studies, to be sure the level of moral values in students is still very low, primarily in terms of knowledge and attitudes of moral values especially when students carry out lab assessment. Therefore, this study was undertaken to explore the extent of students’ knowledge in terms of moral values and attitudes to identify the tendency of good values primarily in lab assessment. A total of 196 students consisted of students at certificate and diploma level of Institut Kemahiran Mara Sungai Petani (IKMSP) and Pusat Latihan Teknologi Tinggi Batu Pahat (ADTEC) used to be respondents of this study. The questionnaire is the main collective instrument in this study as well as interviews and observations as supporting instruments. The collected data then were analyzed using SPSS version 16.0 for the mean, standard deviation and t-test, while the content analysis were used for the interview data and observations. The findings showed that all the values involved in this study were practiced by students during teaching and learning process in laboratory. It is however, different result goes for lecturers whereas only part of the lecturers tends to practice this value to the students. Therefore, some researchers proposed several techniques to ensure both students and lecturers apply the moral values during lab assessment. As for example, it is necessary for Institut Latihan Awam should be monitored from time to time to ensure that the lecturers to apply moral values in the process of teaching and learning at the workshop.
