  • Effects of Achievement Goal Orientation Types on Subjective Well-being

    • Authors: Tasya Nafasya Putri, Airin Yustikarini Saleh
      Pages: 65 - 75
      Abstract: In the midst of increasing academic pressure, the subjective well-being of high school students tends to decline as they undergo the school years. In this regard, measuring subjective well-being in specific contexts is necessary to ensure thorough and accurate information that better represents their situation. For this purpose, the study uses subjective well-being in school, which consists of school satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect. Out of the variables that correlate to subjective well-being in school, achievement goal orientation needs more attention. Thus, the study examines the effects of each type of goal orientation on subjective well-being in school using a 2 × 2 framework. Based on linear regression analysis, mastery-approach goal, performance-approach goal, and performance-avoidance goal have a significant effect on the subjective well-being of 11th-grade high school students in school. However, the opposite is true for the mastery-avoidance goal. The research supports previous research and provides broad information about achievement goal orientation as described by the 2 × 2 framework.

  • Sense of Coherence and Driver Stress in Ridesharing Drivers as Moderated
           by Community Affiliation

    • Authors: Novika Grasiaswaty, Nuri Sadida, Alexandra Aliviary
      Pages: 76 - 86
      Abstract: The present research aimed to test whether community involvement moderates the relationship between sense of coherence (SOC) and driver stress among online ridesharing drivers. The study used a quantitative design to collect data via questionnaires. All 112 participants were male and chose online ridesharing as their primary occupation. Participants were assessed using the Work Sense of Coherence Scale and Driver Stress Scale, a subscale of Driving Behavior Inventory. Community involvement was measured with a close-ended question in the demographic section of the questionnaire, with dichotomous options provided (1 = community participation; 0 = no community participation). Collected data were analyzed using JASP to examine the moderating effect. The results of this study showed that community involvement moderates the relationship between SOC and driver stress in online ridesharing drivers.

  • Effects of Internship Satisfaction, Subjective Norms, and Self-Efficacy on
           Student Intern’s Job Application Intention

    • Authors: Ibnu Handono Putra, Debora Eflina Purba
      Pages: 87 - 96
      Abstract: Internship programs can serve as recruitment and selection strategies that facilitate data collection on the abilities of potential employees to manage their daily work duties. This study aims to examine factors that may influence a student intern’s intentions to apply to convert the internship into a permanent employee position at the same company after graduating from university. The study is grounded in the theory of planned behavior to probe whether internship satisfaction, subjective norms, and self-efficacy are predictors of the intentions of student interns to apply for jobs at companies that offer internship programs. Data collected from 261 Indonesian university students demonstrated that internship satisfaction and subjective norms positively and significantly predicted the intentions of student interns to apply to convert their internships into permanent jobs at the same company. However, self-efficacy did not predict such conversion intentions. Finally, the practical implications of these outcomes are discussed, and directions for prospective research are suggested.

  • Visual-spatial Working Memory Span of Indonesian Children with Deafness in
           Oral, Total, and Sign Language Communication Methods

    • Authors: Johana Aprilia, Frieda Maryam Mangunsong
      Pages: 97 - 108
      Abstract: Children with hearing impairment or deafness experience cognitive function delays but not limited visual-spatial working memory, which is commonly used to solve mathematical problems. Previous studies have discovered that visual or spatial working memory in such children is different because of the communication methods that rely on vision. This study explores the visual-spatial working memory in children with deafness by measuring the memory of 70 elementary school children with deafness and identifying their communication methods through questionnaires. The questionnaires were completed by the children’s parents. The visual-spatial working memory measurement utilized the Lion Game through Zoom meetings. Consequently, it was found that there was no significant difference in visual-spatial working memory capacity in children with hearing impairment using oral, total communication, and sign language. It can be argued that in children with deafness, their visual-spatial working memory span with oral, total, and sign language communication methods have still not reached the maximum point. The use of hearing aids, popular among such children also did not significantly enhance visual-spatial working memory capacity. This research recommends parents be more attentive not only toward the communication methods of children with deafness but also to their cognitive function development.

  • Effectiveness of Self-Regulated Learning Intervention Program in
           Forethought Phase of a School Underachiever

    • Authors: Eunike Karina Nadine Matitaputty, Farida Kurniawati
      Pages: 109 - 119
      Abstract: When someone fails to achieve their potential, it is called underachievement. This phenomenon is predominantly observed for adolescent, particularly during the transition to middle school. This finding is observed because they are obligated to adapt to many internal and external changes. Several studies have confirmed that underachievement is caused by poor self-regulated learning skills. In this study, researchers adapted the Self-Regulation Empowerment Program (SREP) to help  middle school student improve their self-regulation skills in learning. This program focuses on increasing the knowledge (cognitive domain) on self-regulated learning at the forethought phase by the means of SREP. This research adopts a single-case experimental design, particularly the A-B design. The analysis is performed by observing how well the participant performs in terms of success indicators, comparison between pretest and posttest scores, and qualitative analysis. Hence, the participant could achieve all success indicators in each session. This intervention program is effective in increasing knowledge on self-regulated learning at the forethought phase in empowerment and goal setting aspects. However, it is not effective in improving the time-management aspect. The procedures in this intervention can be adapted by parent and teachers to help the participant in improving their self-regulated learning ability.

  • Relationship Between Sensation Seeking and Attitude on Reckless Riding
           Behavior in Jabodetabek, Indonesia

    • Authors: Imanurul Aisha Rahardjo, Dianti E. Kusumawardhani
      Pages: 120 - 126
      Abstract: Transportation needs are increasing along with traffic problems, such as traffic accidents, congestion, and density of motorized vehicles. In Indonesia, especially in its large, crowded cities, accidents involving two-wheeled motorized vehicles are frequent. Human factors such as personality and behavior are a cause of accidents involving careless driving. Additionally, sensation seeking and the attitude toward reckless behavior influence the reckless behavior of motorcyclists in Indonesia, especially in the Jabodetabek area. Methods: data were obtained through a self-report questionnaire. The 69 participants (F:40, M:29) were motorbike riders aged 18–35 years who had an Indonesian driving license type C and had ridden a motorcycle daily for a minimum of 2 years. The questionnaire comprised 17 items that measured sensation seeking and attitudes toward reckless riding. Prerequisite for mediating the relationship among the variables, sensation seeking must correlate with attitudes and reckless riding such that the attitude variable that is a mediator must also correlate with reckless riding. Therefore, in this study, the mediating effect of attitudes in the relation between sensation seeking and reckless riding was tested. Our result demonstrates that’s influence of reckless riding attitude as a partial mediator between sensation seeking and reckless riding.
