  • Policy Framework for Education Development in Nepal

    • Authors: Pramila Neupane
      Abstract: This exploration of challenges and barriers to inclusion in Nepal elaborates a conceptual framework for education development in a diverse society. As Nepal is a highly diverse, caste-based, multi-ethnic, and multi-linguistic society with very low development indicators, the article focuses on barriers to education and related issues across different socioeconomic groups. A systematic review of the relevant literature forms the basis for the design of a practical approach to education development for this diverse society in light of education policy trends in Nepal since 1950. The five proposed steps for education policy formulation and implementation include an in-depth analysis of the existing situation and outcome assessments. The proposed approach will enable local governance institutions to design and implement pragmatic provisions for education development at local level in the context of a new constitution that mandates local government management of school education.

  • Scope Validity of the Graph Drawing and Interpretation Skill Checklist

    • Authors: Bülent Aksoy
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to determine the scope validity of the graph drawing interpretation skill checklist that can be used in social studies teaching. The literature review was made while the draft skill checklist was prepared at first. There have generally been some graph drawing and interpretation skill checklist studies at secondary and higher education levels. However, a graph drawing and interpretation skill checklist prepared for the social studies course at the primary education level has not been found. In the next step, items of the graph drawing and interpretation skill checklist were prepared. It has been benefitted from the literature on the graph drawing and interpretation for this. Attention has been paid to the preparation of items that assess the graph drawing and interpretation skill at the elementary education level. The scope validity of the items was analyzed employing the technique developed by Lawshe (1975) based on assessments of 10 specialists in their field. Analysis results show that the scope validity ration of the skill checklist was sufficient, thereby being workable in assessing the graph drawing and interpretation skill in social studies teaching.

           Referees

    • Authors: Canan Gülbin Eskiyecek
      Abstract: This study was aimed to investigate the opinions of licensed swimming referees within the structure of Turkey Swimming Federation about referee training process and determine the level of their expectations. The study group was randomly selected by a total of 212 swimming referees (95 female and 117 male), and attended Development Seminar for Swimming Referees which was held in Antalya in 2016. “The Review of Referee Training Process and The Survey of Expectation Levels” developed by Bahadır Kayışoğlu in 2008 was used as a data collection tool in the study. Necessary formal permissions were obtained from Turkish Swimming Federation for the scale applied to the referees. In the analysis of the data, t-test was used for binary comparisons, and one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used for multiple comparisons. SPSS Statistics 24.0 was used in the analysis of the data. The p-value that was less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. As a result of the research, it was found that some variables of swimming referees (age, gender, classification, professional experience, educational level, satisfaction level and the reasons to become a referee) have impacts on referees’ training processes, so it was determined that the referees had both positive and negative opinions regarding the referee training process.

  • Learning for Earning: Student Expectations and Perceptions of University

    • Authors: Sophia Gorgodze
      Abstract: In the context of increasing numbers of students enrolling in higher education in the last decade, understanding student expectations of their universities becomes more important. Universities need to know what students expect if they want to keep them satisfied and continue attracting them. On the other hand, it is also important to know whether student expectations are in line with the purpose of the universities and the causes they serve. This research explores students’ expectations and perceptions of the university in post-Soviet Georgia, as well as whether these expectations are in line with the perspectives of university administrators. For the purposes of this research, over 800 bachelor level students of different academic programs were surveyed at five big public universities across Georgia. Additionally, 10 in-depth interviews were conducted with university administrators to learn about the purpose that public universities try to serve and to understand their perspectives on what should be expected of university. After the analysis of the results, two focus groups were conducted with the students in Western and Eastern Georgia to make sense of the findings obtained through the student survey. Finally, 4 in-depth interviews were conducted with experts to understand their perspectives on the actual findings of this research. The results suggest that employment is the main expectation from a university education. Moreover, there is a mismatch between what students identify as their primary expectation and what administrators believe students should expect. Significance and implications of these results for universities are discussed.

  • Inclusive Early Childhood Settings: Analyses of the Experiences of Thai
           Early Childhood Teachers

    • Authors: Sunanta Klibthong
      Abstract: Findings from child development research support inclusive practice in early childhood education to enable full participation of all children in learning activities and build their core capabilities for life. However, the implementation of inclusive practices in early childhood is often constrained by boundary-crossing barriers. This paper reports a quantitative study that investigated and analysed the inclusive practice experiences of 344 pre-school teachers across the six regions of Thailand. The study identified positive experiences of inclusive practices linked to effective collaboration with minimal barriers related to time, increased workload and lack of resources to help teachers cater to the needs of all children. The findings offer direction for developing teachers as leaders to work effectively across professional boundaries so that Thailand can achieve the goals of inclusive education for all children.

  • The Effect of Biotechology Module with Problem Based Learning in the
           Socioscientific Context to Enhance Students’ Socioscientific Decision
           Making Skills

    • Authors: Sajidan Sajidan
      Abstract: This aim of the research was to train socioscientific decision making skills for the science students. Students are involved to solve the socioscientific problems by making informative and systematic decisions. The development of socioscientific decision making skills was done by applying biotechnological module based on Problem-based Learning with socioscientific cases. Quasi-experimental design was used in this research. Two science classes were employed in this research: first class for experimental class which had the treatment by applying biotechnology module based on problem-based learning and another class for control class using biology books from school. Those two classes were given the same questions in pre-test and post-test to measure socioscientific decision making skills. The research results showed that the average post-test score of socioscientific decision making skills in experimental class was 82.80 which is higher than the control class (62.32); moreover, normalized gain score in experimental class obtaining 0.745 and this is also higher than that in control class (0.434). The results of ANCOVA analysis show, that there was significant differences in the score of socioscientific decision making skills between experimental class and the control one by the value of F count (25.54), this value was higher than F table (4.075). In addition, the score of partial eta squared was 0,384, which means that the application of PBL-based module with socioscientific cases have the high level of effectiveness to improve socioscientific decision making skills. The result of assessment transcript in the decision making quality showed that experimental class has the decision supported by the justified arguments which is contains 2-4 socioscientific aspects.

  • Not All Finns Think Alike: Varying Views of Assessment in Finland

    • Authors: Ashleigh Franco
      Abstract: Finnish students have been among the world’s strongest performers on standardized assessments throughout the past decade. Consequently, educators and scholars are interested in how to explain such results. A common explanation, as seen on social media, is that Finnish educators do not regularly assess their students. This study explores educators’ views on assessment practices in Finnish education. First, the literature on assessment practices in Finland is reviewed. Then, using narrative inquiry as a research method, Finnish educators’ views on assessment practices are examined. The research participants were two professors, two novice teachers, and two pre-service teachers, all connected to the same prominent university-based primary teacher education program in Finland. The narratives of the six participants in connection with assessment in Finland’s education system highlight the variance in opinions about international standardized assessments as well as assessment practices at the classroom and school levels. Further, participants’ narratives reveal the influence students’ socioeconomic status may have on teachers’ assessment practices.
