  • Preferences and Requirements for the Values in the Social Studies Program
           of the Students attending the Regional Boarding Secondary Schools

    • Authors: Sibel Yazıcı; Nuray KURTDEDE FİDAN KURTDEDE FİDAN
      Abstract: The aim of the study is to reveal the preferences and requirements of the students attending the Regional Boarding Secondary Schools (YBO) concerning the values contain in the educational program of the social studies course. The study was designed within the framework of phenomenology which is among the qualitative research methods.  The participants of the study are 79 eight grade students attending a regional boarding secondary school in Afyonkarahisar during the spring semester of 2018-2019 school year in the Turkey.  The data of the study are collected through the administration of a survey questionnaire with two parts which contains open-ended items. The data obtained were analysed using the descriptive and content analyses. The findings of the study show that the participants do not differ based on gender and the socio-economic background of their families. The frequently preferred values by the participants are found to be attaching importance to the family unity, honesty, sympathy and patriotism. Gender is not found to have significant effects on their preference over the values. However, female students mostly emphasized the value of attaching importance to the family unity, but male students mostly emphasized the value of patriotism. Another finding is that the participants do not provide a clear justification for each of the values they preferred. This suggests that it is difficult to establish a justification for the value. However, requirements value justifications are analyzed, it is seen that they express the definition of value, its importance and the expectations of having this specific value.

  • Various Corrective Feedback Types in Collaborative vs. Individual Writing
           Conditions

    • Authors: Maryam Soleimani; Sima Modirkhamene
      Abstract: One of the important issues in EFL instruction is the idea of eliminating students’ linguistic errors through providing corrective feedback (CF). Accordingly, this study investigated the effect of various CF types (i.e., comprehensive, selective, and no feedback) on advanced EFL learners’ writing in different writing conditions (i.e., individual & collaborative). 132 EFL advanced learners aged from 14-20 were considered as the main participants. Learners were divided into 6 groups (i.e., three individual and three collaborative writing conditions). Furthermore, each writing condition included three groups with selective, comprehensive and no correction orientations. Data collection tools and procedures encompassed an institutionalized Placement Test, pre-test, and post-test. The treatment that lasted for nine sessions was followed by a post-test. Data was submitted to a series of ANOVA tests with follow up pair-wise comparisons and independent-samples t-tests. Findings indicated that: (1) CF, especially selective one, was more effective in enhancing learners’ writing accuracy, and (2) members of the collaborative writing groups outperformed those in the individual ones in terms of their writing accuracy development. The theoretical and practical implications are discussed in relation to enhancing writing accuracy of the learners.

  • A Review of Research on the Impacts of Texting on Vocabulary among Second
           Language Learners

    • Authors: Or-Kan Soh; Azman Hazita, Izzammuddin Isnin
      Abstract: This paper provides the critical review of the impacts of texting on vocabulary among students from various range of ages, level of studies and background. Emergence of communication through modern modes of communication such as texting has greatly influenced the written communication among students. This impact of texting can also be traced from their academic writings. So far, there is lack of review studies with the focus on the impact of texting on vocabulary. Its consequential impact on the standard language has acquired greater importance. This studies also determine the relationship between the correlation of use of Instant Messaging and Text Messaging and the English grammar, vocabulary and spelling of the students. In total, 50 studies published between 2006 to 2019 and 20 indexed journals were analysed. The main findings from this review provide the impacts of texting on vocabulary among students. Furthermore, the paper discusses trends and the vision towards the future and opportunities for the further research in texting using Instant Messaging and Text Messaging.

  • The mediating role of perceived administrative support for the effect of
           job motivation on organizational identification

    • Authors: Gökçe ÖZDEMİR
      Abstract: In this study, the mediating role of perceived administrative support for the effect of teachers’ job motivation on their organizational identification perceptions was investigated. For this purpose, in mind, the opinions of 320 kindergarten teachers in 304 schools from 13 different school districts of Şahinbey/Gaziantep were received. However, 233 scales were taken into consideration. The research data were collected through Job Motivation Scale (JMS), Organizational Identification Scale (OIS) and Perceived Administrative Support Scale (PASS). Descriptive statistics and path analysis were used in data analysis. Analysis results revealed that the job motivation perceptions of teachers were high. In addition, it was revealed that the participants also had high scores for organizational identification and perceived administrative support. Correlation analyses yielded positive, moderate and significant relationships between the research variables. Path analysis uncovered that perceived administrative support had a “partial mediating” role for the relationship between job motivation and organizational identification. Based on research findings, it was concluded that the effect of job motivation on teachers’ identification with their organizations was realized through perceived administrative support, albeit partially.

  • Identity Formation in TESOL Program: An Auto-ethnography of Indonesian
           Student Becomes a Legitimate Speaker and Teacher of English

    • Authors: Rina Febriani Sarie; Eko Purwanti, Bambang Widi Pratolo
      Abstract: Several studies have investigated how the TESOL program influenced the construction of Non-Native English Speaker Teachers’ identities, yet few literature concerns about the negotiation of NNESTs’ identity as legitimate speakers and teachers of English. This paper is an auto-ethnographic investigation of my personal experience as one of international students in the TESOL program at Monash University. Drawing on Norton’s (2000) theory of language and identity, this study examined a complex process of my identity formation as a legitimate speaker and teacher of English after studying one of a critical pedagogical unit ‘Language, Culture, and Curriculum’. The findings indicated that the TESOL program enabled me to discover and explore another part of myself as a legitimate speaker and teacher of English through linguistic constructs and rich knowledge given in that unit. It also supported that a critical pedagogical unit could empower international students to form their identities as confident and professional English teachers back to their countries.

  • Challenges in using authentic assessment in 21st century ESL classrooms

    • Authors: Muhammad Noor Muhammad Noor; Nurahimah Mohd Yusoff, Mohd Faiz Mohd Yaakob
      Abstract: This paper seeks to explore the challenges faced by excellent teachers in preparing for authentic assessment in their ESL classrooms. This qualitative case study involving 6 excellent teachers was based on purposive sampling. Data sources in this study used classroom observation and a series of semi-structured interviews with the excellent teachers. Thematic analysis was used to identify emerging themes from the codes gathered from the interviews and observations. Data showed that excellent teachers faced multiple challenges prior to preparing for authentic assessment. They have also been using variations of authentic assessment to help children in their learning besides accurate documentation and extensive reading from around the globe to equip themselves with the current knowledge. Since there is no clear guideline for teachers who practice authentic assessment in their classes, this study provided some insights on the preparations and the use of authentic assessment as part of their teaching and learning process.

  • Vocabulary Acquisition (Incidental) through Watching Subtitled Video
           Material

    • Authors: Alvin Rosales
      Abstract: Subtitle refers to the time-synchronized text on a video that translates the spoken audio to another language. This research deals with the effect of watching subtitled video material on the vocabulary acquisition (incidental) of the Filipino learners of English as a second language with an emphasis on the receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge. The study was participated by 100 university students in a private higher education institution in the Philippines. The study used a pretest and posttest design in which the Vocabulary Knowledge Scale developed by Paribakht and Wesche was employed. The results show that there is a significant difference between the pretest and the posttest performance in vocabulary acquisition in terms of receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge of the participants. The findings imply the integration of subtitled video material in the teaching of vocabulary in Philippine classrooms because of its effectiveness which, up to this point, is not yet realized.

  • Dynamic Assessment Effect on Speaking Performance of Indonesian EFL
           Learners

    • Authors: fahmi fahmi; Bambang Widi Pratolo, Nurul Amalia Zahruni
      Abstract: The research concerned the application of Dynamic Assessment (DA) in English Language Teaching (ELT) which based on Vygotsky’s theory, namely Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). The research was meant to investigate the effect of DA in improving teaching and learning speaking in Indonesia especially EFL learners in university. The research was conducted using a qualitative method by involving four Indonesian university learners in the first semester. The participants received the same treatments through pre-test and self-reflection, feedback and knowledge expansion, post-test and self-reflection, post-feedback, and semi-structured interviews. The instruments were used to analyze the learners’ non-fluency and mastery problem. The analysis showed that the learners’ speaking performance was improved after experiencing DA sessions. The results of the test and self-reflection showed significant improvement in their speaking. The finding showed some positive effects of DA on EFL learners’ speaking performance. In interviews, learners showed positive experiences and attitude toward DA since it served them a comfortable, structured, practical, and meaningful platform to recognize their speaking behavior, weaknesses, strength, and needs. Furthermore, it also helped them to get the objective feedbacks with less anxiety. The researchers conclude that DA can be applied as a primary alternative assessment in English speaking practices.

  • The impact of Inteprofessional Education to health students’
           collaborative competencies: a pre and post study design

    • Authors: Desak Ernawati
      Abstract: One of the aims of Interprofessional education (IPE) is to foster collaboration amongst healthcare professionals. IPE has been adopted at Udayana University by involving seven health courses at Udayana University, Bali, Indonesia.These students were assigned to  49 groups which composed the seven health course students. They learned working in collaboration from cases identified in the community. The activities spanned for five semesters. At the beginning of their activities the students received interprofessional collaboration competencies attainment survey (ICCAS). The survey has been validated in the population and has two collaborative competencies, namely communication and collaboration.This is a report of ICCAS employment in Semester III dan IV of the first cohort of IPE Program at Udayana University. 138 students completed the survey in both semesters. A paired-sample t-test was conducted to compare the mean score differences of collaboration and communication in the first and second semesters of attending IPE unit. Whilst, there was no significant differences on the mean score for communication, there was a significant difference in the mean score for pre and post collaboration (94.7±9.7) and (91.0±10.8); t(130)=3.379, p=0.001. These results suggest that the collaboration competencies amongst the seven health courses students reduced after one semester attending IPE activities. These findings indicated that the study design and learning tasks should be amended to ensure students gain the most of their learning in collaboration.

    • Authors: Jordy Satria Widodo; Novia Budi Parwanto, Safendrri Komara Ragamustari
      Abstract: This study focuses on elucidation of the perception of actors in education toward the use of technology in the 2013 Indonesian Education Curriculum (C-13). The study was done at SMA Plus YPHB and SMAN 4 Bogor, high schools located in Bogor City, West Java, Indonesia. The specific policy that underlies this study is the Regulation of Ministry of Education and Culture No.70/2013 in the point of completion mindsets No. 6 about the shift from single tool learning to multimedia-tool based learning. This paper integrates mixed methods—qualitative and quantitative methods, which use questionnaires and interview by incorporating Extended Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) using path regression analyses. The subjects of the research are teachers and students in the schools, an education practitioner, and an educational policy advisor. Furthermore, the assessment was done toward the perceptions of educational technology infrastructure, such as computers/laptops, projectors, speaker, Internet, software application and mobiles. The results show that Perceived Usefulness (PU) is better shaped by Perceived Ease of Use (PEU), Attitude Toward Using (ATU) is influenced by PEU, and Intention to Use (IU) is significantly affected by ATU. However, the external variables are novel for teachers and students. For teachers, the external variables do not determine PU, yet age influences PU for students. Thus, teachers and students show good intention to use the technology providing they embrace positive attitudes in using it.

    • Authors: Asrial Asrial; Syahrial Syahrial, Maison Maison, Dwi Agus Kurniawan
      Abstract: Teachers have an important role in realizing quality learning. Quality teachers are shown with good competence. Teacher competency can be improved through the teacher's understanding of non-constructivism knowledge in mathematics learning. Teachers can integrate cultural values and local wisdom into mathematical concepts to shape student knowledge. Integrating cultural values and local wisdom into mathematics learning makes students learn through their cultural background experiences. This study uses descriptive research methods. The purpose of this study was to determine the level of pedagogical knowledge of teachers, ethnoconstructivism knowledge of teachers, the influence and impact of ethnoconstivism knowledge into mathematics learning. The results of this study indicate the competence of elementary school teachers in Batanghari District, Muaro Jambi Regency, and Jambi City tend to be predominantly not good, and teachers have applied ethno-constructivism to mathematics learning through the use of media, models, and learning strategies. The teacher still encountered many obstacles in the implementation process. The age range greatly influences the level of ethno-constructivism knowledge in mathematics learning.

  • Arts-based assessment in educational settings

    • Authors: Jiří Kantor; Xianmei Lei
      Abstract: Arts-based assessment is an objective measure that incorporates artistic experience or artistic materials into the assessment process and thus enables to get unique contributions about pupils. The current survey focused on arts-based assessment in the Czech Republic to explore the following issues:  how did arts therapists assess suitability of therapy for pupils; which areas of therapeutic process were evaluated and what made the process of arts-based assessments specific in educational institutions. A mixed methods study used a statistical analysis of a survey with “The Practice in Arts Therapies questionnaire” (n=142 arts therapists) and an inductive analysis of qualitative interviews (n=10 arts therapists). Results revealed that arts-based assessments were more likely to be characterized by qualitative non-standardized assessments based on observation, analysis of artistic products/artistic process and reflexive techniques and are related to prevalent humanistic orientation. Educational institutions influenced the assessments mainly in the content and organization of the process. On this basis, there is a need to support the usage of standardized arts-based assessments in educational practice and to develop standards for implementation of arts-based assessment suitable for educational environment. More advanced training in this area should be included into professional trainings and further education of arts therapists.

  • An evaluation of supervisory feedback in the principal evaluation process

    • Authors: Ahmed Mohammed Alkaabi
      Abstract: This qualitative study found that feedback aimed at improving the leadership practices of principals was limited, and there was no embedded professional learning dialogue wherein such feedback existed. The study explored how school principals perceived their supervisors’ feedback in the formative principal evaluation process and spotlighted constructive supervisory feedback as a key component in that process. While employing a qualitative case-study design situated within the context of the Al-Ain school district––supervised by the Abu Dhabi Education Council of the United Arab Emirates––the researcher collected relevant data from interviews, documents, and field notes. Six school principals participated in the study, and a thematic analysis of their comments yielded four themes that reflected the quality of their supervisors’ feedback to them: feedback in absentia, superficial or irrelevant feedback, negative or judgmental feedback, and constructive, individualized feedback. The findings of this study added to the body of leadership literature and set forth implications for the redesign of supervisory feedback to advance principals’ leadership practices and professional growth.

  • Licensure examination performance and academic achievement of Teacher
           Education graduates: A search for congruity

    • Authors: Jay-cen Tamayo Amanonce; Ariel Macarubbo Maramag
      Abstract: Teacher education institutions (TEIs) in the Philippines establish their brand of educational quality through their graduates’ performance in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET). It is, therefore, necessary for TEIs to align instructional delivery with the competencies in the LET. Thus, this study was undertaken to correlate academic achievement and licensure examination performance of teacher education graduates. Academic achievement is the graduates’ grade weighted average in college and pre-board examination results. The respondents were 1,017 graduates of Bachelor of Secondary Education and Bachelor of Elementary Education in a state university in Cagayan Province, Philippines. The study revealed a significant and strong correlation between the graduates’ grade weighted average in college and LET performance. This is an indication of the effective evaluation procedure of the university since the teachers’ assessment concurs with the graduates’ performance in the LET. A significant relationship was also established between the graduates’ performance in the pre-board examination and LET albeit with a weak correlation. This study recommends the development of mechanisms in improving the conduct of pre-board examination review programs in the university. Further validation of the assessment tools used in the pre-board examination is likewise suggested.

      Abstract: This study aims to analyze the appropriateness of ethno-based assessment instruments that can measure Higher Order Thinking Skills based on item response theory. Analysis of the assessment instruments that have been developed have the characteristics of local wisdom and was trialed in three Karanganyar Regency High Schools. Student data analyzed were 288 test scores, consisting of 11th-grade students who had obtained Mathematical Induction material. The method used to explain the results of the analysis uses descriptive analysis. The prerequisite test uses the Unidimensional test for the 35 items that were tested, which means that of the 11 factors formed there is only one dominant factor. The results of the analysis of the three-parameter methods on item response theory for the Goodness of Fit (GoF) parameter model that most fit is the 2-PL model. The results of the analysis can be seen in the output threshold of phase 2 of the 2-PL model regarding the level of difficulty of the grains at values of -0.54 to 2.21. The different grain power index can be seen from the output of the BILOG-MG phase 2 program, which is the slope value in the range of 0.156 to 1.174. Therefore, 34 valid items were obtained with good difficulty and different power levels. Reliability for 34 items 0.71, which means a reliable instrument. It is recommended to conduct a construct validity analysis using confirmatory factor analysis.

           Academic Achievement

    • Authors: İBRAHİM ALPER KÖSE
      Abstract: Previous literature pointed out that there was a relationship between psychological constructs and students’ academic achievement. In the frame of this basement, therelationships between psychological constructs;components of subjective well-being, loneliness, depression, and academic achievement were tested in a proposed model.As a research group, 488 university students in Bolu-Turkey were participated. Research data were examined by bivariate correlations and hierarchical multiple regression analysis. Results showed that depression wassignificant predictor of academic achievement. In addition, the impact of depression on students’ achievement was enhanced by loneliness andSWB components’ additive contribution was not significant. Depression and loneliness explained a substantial amount of variance in the prediction of academic achievement. These findings are discussed in the frame of related literature. As implications, higher education administrators, policy makers, academic staff should take in consideration that psychological constructs are related to student achievement. Counseling services should established or developed specifically at the universities.
