The study was conducted based on the conceptual framework of CIPP to evaluate teachers' views on the Chinese Language Syllabus at lower secondary schools in Selangor state, Malaysia. The study involved 111 teachers from Chinese schools from different backgrounds. All sample subjects were randomly selected from ten districts of Selangor. Questionnaires were used as the research instruments and the Likert scale was used for measurement of research questions. The data were analyzed using SPSS. The results showed the continuation of syllabus from Form I to Form III, as well as consistency with the textbook contents. The findings also showed that teachers did not know clearly the three main domains in the syllabus and were unclear about the objectives of the syllabus. Results of t-test, ANOVA and Chi-Square test showed no significant differences in the evaluation of teachers in general despite the teachers' different backgrounds. Comparison of mean scores showed that National Type Secondary School's students appreciated aesthetic value better in the implementation of the syllabus. School students from National Secondary School were found to show more active participation in class, but they could not finish the exercises in the textbook. Teacher recommended that they should be given more oppurtunities in curriculum planning and that the syllabus objectives should be summarized.
