  • An Experimental Research on the Integration of Ideal and Belief Education
           into English Major Courses in Chinese UniversitiesAn Experimental Research
           on the Integration of Ideal and Belief Education into English Major
           Courses in Chinese Universities

    • Authors: Yang Feng
      Pages: 1 - 14
      Abstract: The university phase is a critical period for the formation of students' outlook on life and career ideals, but some Chinese college students lack a correct understanding and motivation for learning, which needs to be improved. Through a teaching reform experiment to integrate ideal and belief education in the professional course in an academic year and 32 teaching weeks to 106 freshmen and 113 sophomores of English education majors. The result shows that compared with the control group who maintained the conventional teaching mode, the experimental group’s performance in the outlook on life, academic development plans, professional ideals, and their motivation to learn well are all significantly improved, and the final exam scores have increased by 13-15% on average. The experiment shows that the use of appropriate materials and methods to integrate ideal and belief education in the teaching of professional courses in college can effectively promote students to form a correct outlook on life and career planning, improve learning enthusiasm and professional course performance, and help serve the society to achieve their ideals in life.

      Abstract: The purpose of the study is to assess the pedagogical approaches of Social Studies Tutors instruction delivery in the Colleges of Education in the Eastern and Greater Accra regions of Ghana. The research design used for the study was a blend of quantitative and qualitative methods in a descriptive survey manner. The stratified sampling technique was used in this study. In all, a sample size of four hundred and eighty (480) Social Studies teacher trainees were chosen for the study. The data collection tools used were semi-structured interview guide and questionnaire. The study revealed that most of the tutors used appropriate pedagogical approaches to the effective teaching and learning of Social Studies. Again, the study revealed that majority of respondents agreed that the pedagogical content knowledge of Social Studies teachers and teachers’ teaching-learning strategies significantly enhanced the instructional process in the classroom. It is recommended that teacher training institutions, teacher education division, and universities in Ghana should give appropriate training to teachers in their subject areas to improve upon their pedagogical skills and knowledge.

  • The Impact of Transfer Shock in a Dental Hygiene Program at a Four-Year
           Health-Sciences University

    • Authors: Claire Tucker, Michael Miller
      Pages: 31 - 39
      Abstract: Health-sciences medical universities that host dental hygiene programs typically work on the model of offering upper division coursework, meaning that they enroll only students who complete their first two years at a different institution. The current study investigated the impact of ‘transfer shock’ on students who transferred into a dental hygiene program from community colleges compared to those transferring from four-year universities. This included testing for differences between student grade point average and NBDHE pass rates for the two groups of transfer students. A total of 166 students who graduated from a dental hygiene program at a mid-southern health-sciences university from 2014-2018 were included in the study. The subjects were placed into two groups by the location of their lower division courses: community college or four-year university. Paired t-tests suggested the presence of transfer shock for both groups. First-attempt pass rates: 95.5%, with a program GPA of 3.12 for the community college group and 98%, with a program GPA of 3.27 for the four-year university group. Transfer shock did occur in the program in the study, so program administrators in dental hygiene academic units should be aware of the impact of transfer and help build bridges that support students to aid in their success.

           Participation in Regular and Mobile Primary Schools in Turkana County,
           Kenya

    • Authors: Paul Ekeno Ejore, Daniel Komo Gakunga, Musembi Nungu
      Pages: 40 - 62
      Abstract: Kenya’s Turkana County, being an arid area, is faced with numerous challenges that hinder education programs especially among school going pupils. Therefore, the study sought to establish the effectiveness of the government interventions measures on pastoralists’ pupils’ participation in regular and mobile primary schools in Turkana County. Based on the study, this paper explores the effectiveness of the school feeding programme in promoting access to education among pupils from pastoralist communities in the County. The study utilized both descriptive survey as well as mixed methods. It utilised a sample of 75 head teachers, 225 teachers, 375 pupils, 85 parents, 3 education officers (1 from each sub-county), 1 County Director of Education and 1 County Commissioner. For data collection, the study employed questionnaires, interview schedules and focus group discussions. Quantitative data was coded and keyed into the computer using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). In order to test the effectiveness of the government intervention, regression test an (inferential statistics) was applied. The analysed data was presented using tables. The qualitative data from interview schedules and focused group discussion was organized into major themes as per the research objectives. The results were presented thematically using extensive description and direct quotations. Hypotheses were analysed using regression analysis. The findings of the study showed that the feeding programme influenced many pastoralists’ pupils’ participation in both regular and mobile primary schools. The study recommends that the government should make efforts to ensure that food is supplied to schools in in time. There is also need to enrich the nutritional quality of the food supplied to schools. This paper highlights the major contribution of school feeding interventions in increasing access to quality education among marginalised communities. It will inform future policies aimed at such interventions by governments and education stakeholders.

  • What Is the Difference' Online and Face-to-Face Authentic Assessment
           Strategy

    • Authors: Muna Jebreen Al Boti, Wesam Bassam E'layan
      Pages: 63 - 75
      Abstract: Online learning has gained more attention in educational institutions recently, and various assessment strategies have been examined to improve performance. Despite these contributions, there is a lack of studies in eastern countries within their own contexts that investigate and compare online and face to face authentic assessment. The purpose of this research is to understand the effectiveness of online and face- to- face instructional methods on students’ performance based on authentic assessment strategy. To achieve this goal, a quantitative method is adopted and paired T- test is applied to analyze the data. The sample consists of 38 female students in sixth grade registered in English subject class in a primary school, and has been taught by the same instructor. The result shows that students who assessed during online class have achieved higher scores than those who assessed in the traditional section. However, the article has presented further explanation, discussion, and a direction for future research.
