           Science Achievement among University Students

    • Authors: Nurzatulshima Kamarudin; Mariyam Wahida, Seyedali Ahrari
      Abstract: Learning science is important to gain a broader view and clear understanding of the complex world. This study aimed to examine the effect of the level of understanding of basic and integrated science process skills (SPSs) on student science achievement. The test instrument was administered to measure the level of understanding of basic and integrated SPSs from 73 students studying in the Science Foundation Studies Program. Findings: The findings of the study reveal level of understanding of basic science processes was satisfactory whereas integrated science process skill was poor. A moderate correlation was found between basic SPSs and integrated SPSs. A weak positive correlation was found between basic SPSs and science achievement. There was an insignificant correlation between integrated SPSs and science achievement. The level of understanding of SPSs among both females and males was fair with females and males. The results of the independent sample t-test indicated there were no significant differences in the level of understanding of SPSs between females and males. It is hoped that the findings provide insight into the ability level of students and would be useful to bring a positive change in the Foundation Studies Program.

           Education Teachers

    • Authors: Putri Asnorsalbiah Ahmad; Normala Ismail
      Abstract: In terms of job scope and workload, being a Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) teacher is more challenging than other teachers. Therefore, this study aims to gain empirical data on the validity of the Work-Life Balance (WLB) Instrument for TVE teachers. An online survey was conducted in secondary schools in two federal territories of Malaysia which is Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya (N=210). Data was collected using the Tailored Design Method with five contacts. The overall response rate was 61.4% (n = 129). The instrument is a 5-Likert-scale survey consisted 14 items. Factor analysis and Cronbach's alpha were used to evaluate the WLB Instrument for TVE instructors' reliability and validity using the SPSS software version 26. The instrument's two factors, which together accounted for 68.2% of the total variance, were demonstrated by the results. For reliability, the first factor had a coefficient of .940 and the second factor had a coefficient of .397. The findings suggested a more in-depth study in determining the factors of the WLB specifically for TVE teachers.

  • An Overview of Akhlak and Moral Concepts and Their Relevance to Moral
           Education in Malaysia

    • Authors: Noor Zulina S De Asildo; Maizura Yasin, Nur Surayyah Madhubala Abdullah, Marzni Mohamed Mokhtar
      Abstract: Moral Education (ME) in Malaysian context is closely related to “akhlak” and moral concept. The use of the terms “akhlak” and moral in achieving the goal of forming people with noble character through the subject of ME has been influenced by Islam as the official religion of Malaysia and the diversity of religious beliefs in the Malaysian community. Moral Education is a complex subject in Malaysia, not only because it is studied by non-Muslim students of various religious beliefs, but also because it may probably be taught by Muslim teachers. Based on a review of theories and previous researches, this paper will discuss the basic principles of "akhlak" and moral and their relationship with the formation of people with noble characters through the ME subject in Malaysia. This paper contributes to the possibility of aligning “akhlak” and moral concepts in order to achieve the goal of forming people with noble characters through the ME subject. Hence, this paper expands on existing literature to better understand the complexities underlying ME subject due to the diversity of religious beliefs among ME teachers and students.

  • The Concept of Land Management in the Temiar Tribe in Kelantan

    • Authors: Hairulnizam Mohd Khori; Mohamad Hafis Amat Simin, Mohamad Asmawi Ibrahim, Ramle Abdullah, Ahmad Puad Mat Som, Abdullah Ibrahim
      Abstract: The Orang Asli community of the Temiar tribe is an indigenous ethnic group whose majority practice a traditional way of life, namely farming and village communities. The majority of the Orang Asli people of the Temiar tribe live in areas near the forest and practice a traditional way of life that is heavily influenced by the old practices of their ancestors and the influence of the natural environment. In general, the Temiar tribal community highly depends on land used especially for settlement and agriculture. The Temiar tribe has some concepts related to tek saka and types of land that are not yet known by most of the outside community. Accordingly, a study using qualitative methods was carried out by taking an ethnographic approach to obtain information related to the concept of land and types of land use in the lives of the Temiar tribe. Interview techniques, participant observation, and FGD were used to obtain data from thirty informants from Orang Asli leaders, village residents, the Office of the Director of Lands and Mines State Officer, and the JAKOA Officer. The data were then analyzed using NVivo PLUS 12 software to obtain more accurate data. Findings show that land is the most important element in the life of the Temiar tribe that has been inherited from generation to generation to be used as a place to live and for agricultural activities. When it comes to land type, the Temiar tribe categorizes land use into tek saka (residence), tek selai (agricultural land), and tek tengos (forest area). For them, owned land only involves tek saka and tek selai. While tek tengos (forest area) is land that is not owned but is used jointly with the community.
