The purpose of this study is to examine the level of understanding the Kod Tangan Bahasa Malaysia (KTBM) [Malay Hand Sign Language] among hearing impaired students in Penang, Malaysia. This study involved 40 hearing impaired students as respondents. All respondents had been chosen by cluster sampling technique from Form Four (Year 10) students. Two sets of achievement tests were used to examine the respondents’ level of understanding towards KTBM. The data collected in this study were analyzed using percentage. The results of this study showed that in Test 1, 52.67 percent of the respondents were able to sign KTBM correctly according to the words given. In Test 2, 74 percent of the respondents were able to understand the KTBM signed to them and tick the correct words represented by the KTBM. Overall findings of this study showed that the respondents performed poorly in understanding words with prefixes, suffixes as well as abstract words.
