The mastery of using affix words among SJKT or Tamil vernacular schools should be taken seriously. This study aims to identify the need for the prefix/suffix word innovation kit in Malay Language for Tamil vernacular school students. This innovation kit plays the role as an alternative material for teaching and learning (PdPc) activities using prefix and suffix words, also academic support materials to diversify the teaching technique also prepare a variation of questions that concern the mastery of words with prefixes and suffixes. This study applies the Design and development Research Approach introduced by Richey and Klien (2007). This study involves the need analysis that is divided into three parts. The first part is the survey study involving 163 students. The data obtained was analysed through the descriptive statistics using the software called Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) version 25.0. The interpretation of the needs analysis depends on the mean value and the standard deviation. The second part of this study involves the evaluation test on the prefix/suffix word skills to measure the level of mastery of this area among the students. The third part covers the semi-structured interview on the Malay Language Head Teacher to get some feedback on the need to construct the prefix/suffix word innovation kit. Its development will be able to improve the mastery of prefix/suffix words among Tamil vernacular school students.
