  • Designing Standards-Setting for Levels of Mathematical Proficiency in
           Measurement and Geometry: Multidimensional Item Response Model

    • Abstract: This study intends to design and verify the quality of a model that measures mathematical proficiency and aims to set the standards in measuring levels of proficiency in the subjects of measurement and geometry. Construct modeling was employed to design a mathematical proficiency measurement model which consists of the mathematical process and the dimensions of a conceptual structure. A total of 517 Secondary Year 1 students were selected from the big data to participate as test-takers. Design-based research encompassing four phases was used to verify the quality of the mathematical proficiency measurement model. A Multidimensional Random Coefficient Multinomial Logit model was used to examine the standards-setting of the mathematical proficiency measurement model. The results indicated that the two dimensions of mathematical proficiency can be further divided into five levels, from non-response/irrelevance to strategic/extended thinking and extended abstract structure for mathematical process and conceptual structural dimensions, respectively. The assessment tool covers 18 items with 15 multiple-choice items and three subjective items in measurement and geometry. Moreover, the results also demonstrated that the validity evidence associated with the internal structure of the multidimensional model is fit. Besides, reliability evidence, as well as item fit, is compliance with the quality of the mathematical proficiency measurement model as illustrated in analysis of the standard error of measurement and infit and outfit of the items. Finally, the researchers managed to set standards for the mathematical proficiency measurement model based on the assessment criterion results from the Wright Map. In conclusion, the standards-setting of the mathematical proficiency measurement model provides substantial information, particularly for measuring those students who are above the lowest level of mathematical proficiency because the error for estimating proficiency was low.

  • Creating Core Competencies and Workload-Based Key Outcome Indicators of
           University Lecturers’ Performance Assessment: Functional Analysis

    • Abstract: This research aims to create and validate the quality of performance assessment using functional analysis. The researchers employed a design-based research method to create core competencies and their workload-based key outcome indicators as a preliminary study encompassing two phases, before formulating a standards-setting appraisal model to assess university lecturers in a public university, Thailand. The researchers began with documentary research to identify core competencies of university lecturers from three clusters of educational programs, namely science and technology, health science, and humanities and social sciences. An innovative prototype of university lecturers’ core competencies was developed based on the obtained results from the first phase. A total of five experts and 17 users participated to validate the quality of the innovative prototype. The preliminary results reveal that there are four core competencies of university lecturers, namely teaching, research, academic service, and preserving arts and culture. Moreover, there are 13 workload-based key outcome indicators and 27 elements that resulted from the four core competencies related to the specific research university in the Thai context. Moreover, the quantitative results of the content validity index from the rating scales of the five experts indicate that the conformity index is 0.78 or higher. However, the qualitative interview results regarding the 17 users from four focus groups imply that there is a gap regarding the accuracy of current performance appraisal between lecturers’ core competencies and their actual workload. Therefore, the dean should make the necessary adjustments based on the context.

  • School Counselors’ Leadership Role in Creating a Collaborative School
           Climate for Linguistically Diverse Students

    • Abstract: School systems are increasingly diverse communities, with a broadening diversity of students and staff alike. School counselors play a critical role in creating a welcoming school climate within the school community. As a catalyst for change within the school system, school counselors can create an effective community partnership culture for schools and families that is collaborative and welcoming for all. This article will discuss the importance of creating a collaborative school climate for linguistically diverse students (LDS) in order to promote their overall well-being and school achievement. With this objective in mind, a review of the literature on school counselor’s leadership role within the school community will be discussed, before embarking on an investigation into the effectiveness of counselors as agents of systemic change in facilitating engagement. A discussion of school counselors’ role in creating a welcoming school climate towards LDS within the school and school community could pave the way for a more positive organizational culture. Using a systemic approach, which aims to generate greater understanding and awareness, school counselors have the power to play a critical role in the transformation of the school system, especially for students from diverse backgrounds (Aydin, 2011; McCall-Perez, 2000; Schwallie-Giddis, Anstrom, Sanchez, Sardi, & Granato, 2004).

  • Reality Versus Beliefs About the Effects of the Preview Learning Method

    • Abstract: This study is mainly designed to evaluate a popular learning method: previewing material before classes and to answer two research questions on the learning method. The research questions are “Does previewing have benefits in promoting future learning'” and “Do people have correct metacognitive judgements on the effects of previewing'” The hypothesis states that previewing is beneficial in ways other than directly pre-stating answers (e.g., providing context information or keywords) and that, in general, individuals’ judgements on the effects of previewing are correct. This experiment found that participants who read preview materials before watching a brief lecture do not perform significantly better on post-tests than participants who have not read the preview. At the same time, most people who read preview materials see the preview as beneficial to their understanding of the topic, which is an incorrect metacognitive judgement. This study indicates that the importance of preview for learning performance may be a myth and reveals how people misjudge the benefits of previewing. These findings can lead to an improved understanding of better ways to conduct self-cognitive study.
