  • Method of Successive Interval in Community Research (Ordinal
           Transformation Data to Interval Data in Social Science Studies)
    • Authors: Badrullah Bakri Badru
      Abstract: This paper seeks to explain the scale of measurement and the transformation of the ordinal scale to distance scale by using the Method of Successive Interval (MSI). In addition, in this paper demonstrated a statistical difference in the groups of test results before the data transformation and after transformation by using MSI. Using statistical tests on group data before and after transformation raises interpretation distinction. Oversight in selecting statistical test will lead to wrong interpretation as well. Therefore, it is required accuracy in selecting test statistic in a study. Data obtained from measurements using an ordinal scale should be tested with a non-parametric statistics. However, if you want to use parametric statistics, the transformation of the ordinal scale to scale the distance (interval) should be done first.Key word: measurement, transformation, ordinal, interval, successive

           Context
    • Authors: Hendra Heriansyah
      Abstract: This paper addresses the impacts of internationalization and globalization on educational context. It is undeniable that the presence and existence of globalization have brought and given a great deal of influences within various fields including on education sector. Of course, it will be a problematic if a school or a higher education institution does not comprehensively notice and precisely pay attention towards each effect and development from internationalization and globalization that obviously appear. Hence, it is needed an international curriculum design that has the meticulous content and process as well as assessment. Moreover, the curriculum also has to take account a variety of aspects and components from distinctive perspectives within its plan, array, and implementation in the field in order to meet the demands of global marketplace and be able to answer each of challenges and changes that arise.

  • Contemporary Approaches to Research in TESOL
    • Authors: Sardar M. Anwaruddin
      Abstract: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is one of the largest educational enterprises in the world. Tens of thousands of teachers—both native and non-native speakers of English—are engaged in TESOL across the world. This large population of teachers depends heavily on academic researchers for developing their knowledge base. Although it is evident that teachers who engage in classroom research are more aware of their practices and better able to facilitate student learning, teacher-research is a minority activity in the field of TESOL. In this article, I briefly discuss TESOL practitioners’ conceptions of research. Then, I focus on a dichotomous relationship between qualitative and quantitative approaches to research, and review some contemporary orientations to TESOL research. I conclude the article with a recommendation that TESOL practitioners engage in action research for their professional development as well as their students’ increased learning of the target language.
