  • The factors in the decision-making of high school graduates about higher
           education in the digital era

    • Authors: Nailya Askarova; Olga Shalamovа, Liia Voronova
      Abstract: Numerous specialists from different fields and perspectives have investigated determinants affecting the choice of future career path by school-leavers. The present study aims to analyze the factors influencing the decision of applicants to choose an academic major at a higher educational institution in the context of the digitalization of education. The authors developed the questionnaire for interviewing respondents. The survey involved a total of 160 students from Russia and Kazakhstan. The study took place from September to November 2022. The researchers collected a large amount of data, including the average scores of students and first-year students’ responses to the survey. The analysis of these data revealed many factors that influence a school graduate’s decision on a future academic major. The results describe three groups of factors that influenced the students’ decisions, namely family, social, and academic ones. The findings suggest that students choose an academic major more independently when they have an online learning experience. In the context of digitalized education, respondents are more likely to discuss their profession with peers or friends in social networks than with parents (0.49 vs. 0.31).

    • Authors: Ulbossyn Tuyakova; Bibianar Baizhumanova, Talshyn Mustapaeva, Lyazzat Alekeshova, Zhansaya Otarbaeva
      Abstract: The study aims to develop an IT-based educational model for the personal development of a social educator: emotional intelligence (EI) and creative abilities. The study took place at L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University and K. Zhubanov Aktobe Regional University in Kazakhstan. It involved four moderators of online learning, 62 students majoring in “social pedagogy”; two of the teachers were members of the curriculum development commission. The study used the method of videoconferencing and inferential analysis to examine the relationship between EI and the creative abilities of future social educators in Kazakhstan. The results showed that the respondents had a moderate level of EI with an average value of 3.39. The correlation between EI and the creative abilities of social educators was medium-strong and positive. Results indicate that an increase in the level of EI leads to an increase in creative abilities. The novelty and originality of the study lies in the following aspects: the development of an educational model of personal growth of social pedagogues on the basis of information technologies taking into account EI and creative abilities; the use of innovative methods to study the relationship between EI and creative abilities of teachers demonstrates the use of modern technologies of data collection and identification of correlations between the studied variables, which indicates the importance of the development of EI and creative abilities of social pedagogues.

           factor analysis

    • Authors: Mira Qerul Barriah Muhamad; Indrajit Ajit Doddanavar, Shanjida Chowdhury
      Abstract: As technological advancements shape the workforce, computational thinking skills (CTS) are becoming increasingly crucial. The objective of the study is to explore the potential mediating role of professional development and career planning in the association between robotic coding and software and computational thinking. The study selected 308 youths using simple random sampling and the collected data was subjected to structural equation modelling (SEM) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) using SmartPLS. Additionally, demographic data were analyzed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS). The results concluded that the instrument adopted fulfilled the requirements and was valid for measuring CTS. This indicates that the instrument effectively assessed the participants’ proficiency in CTS. The findings of this study have implications for addressing the skills gaps among youths. The outcomes of this research can aid in designing educational interventions and policies that focus on developing computational thinking skills among new graduates. By fostering these skills, youths can better adapt to the demands of the rapidly evolving technological landscape and contribute effectively to the industries and job market influenced by industry 4.0. Further research on longitudinal studies may be beneficial to assess the long-term impact of CTS development initiatives on reducing skills gaps and ensuring youths are equipped for future workforce requirements.

  • Amalgamation evaluation model design based on modification weighted
           product-Provus-Alkin-Rwa Bhineda

    • Authors: Dewa Gede Hendra Divayana; P Wayan Arta Suyasa, I Putu Wisna Ariawan
      Abstract: The new normal era allowed learning at IT vocational schools to be carried out directly (synchronously) through online meeting platforms and indirectly (asynchronously) through email, WhatsApp groups, and learning management system (LMS). However, the reality showed that not all synchronous and asynchronous learning implementations were effective. Based on these problems, it was necessary to evaluate and used an appropriate evaluation model. A breakthrough was used, namely the Amalgamation evaluation model based on the modification of the weighted product with the Provus and Alkin models in view of the Rwa Bhineda concept. The purpose of this research was to show the Amalgamation evaluation model design based on weighted product modification with the Provus and Alkin models in view of the Rwa Bhineda concept as the basis for determining the dominant indicators that need to be maintained for the synchronous-asynchronous learning effectiveness. This research used a development approach that focused on the design, initial trial, and initial trial revision. The analysis of this study results used a quantitative descriptive technique, namely the percentage descriptive calculation. This research results showed the evaluation model design was good categorized as evidenced by the average percentage of effectiveness was 88.67%. The emerging significance and value of this research results was the existence of innovation in the educational evaluation field, which makes it easier for evaluators to determine the dominant indicators that need to be maintained in supporting the effectiveness of synchronous-asynchronous learning implementation in IT vocational schools generally, and specifically in IT vocational schools in Bali.

  • Exploring the adoption of cutting-edge management practices by school
           principals

    • Authors: Abdulla Sultan Hareb Almheiri; Hassan Abuhassna
      Abstract: This study examines the application of contemporary leadership trends by public school principals in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with an emphasis on the professional standards governing school leadership. Utilizing a quantitative methodology, the study surveyed 113 principals from 641 schools. The validity of a 30-item questionnaire was rigorously evaluated to ensure that it aligned with the research objectives. This study’s findings reveal that school principals in UAE public schools implement contemporary leadership trends at a notable rate, as indicated by a substantial mean score of 4.24. Strategic management emerges as the primary focus among these trends. In addition, the research reveals statistically significant (0.05) gender and experience differences in participant responses regarding the actual adoption of modern leadership trends by government school principals. In contrast, there were no statistically significant differences (0.05) between participant responses regarding the incorporation of leadership trends by public school principals based on their academic credentials. This study highlights the importance of continuing training programs designed to keep school administrators abreast of the most recent leadership developments.

  • Teachers’ autonomy and innovative work behavior: the mediating role of
           schools’ innovation climate

    • Authors: Safiek Mokhlis; Abdul Hakim Abdullah
      Abstract: For schools to maintain their competitiveness and enhance the standards of their education, they need to implement innovative approaches that allow them to stay abreast of the constantly changing technological, economic, and social environment. The success of these innovative approaches in schools relies heavily on teachers’ innovative work behavior (IWB), and so the role of teachers in this regard is pivotal. It is therefore crucial to determine the factors that affect teachers’ IWB. Thus, the purpose of the current study was to investigate the relationship between teachers’ autonomy, schools’ innovation climate, and IWB. A sample of teachers (n=376) from 12 primary and secondary schools in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia, were surveyed through a questionnaire that was self-administered. Utilizing structural equation modelling with IBM AMOS version 24, schools’ innovation climate was found to have a full mediating role in the relationship between teachers’ autonomy and IWB. The findings suggest the important role of innovation climate in linking teachers’ autonomy to IWB and therefore have significant implications for school leaders.

  • Impact of distance learning on the university students’ academic
           performance and experiences

    • Authors: Michelle Mae Jugasan Olvido; Joje Mar Perino Sanchez, Isidro Max Veloso Alejandro
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Asian educational sector, prompting countries to shift educational delivery to distance learning. With this, the researchers determined the impact of distance learning during the pandemic on students’ academic performance. Utilizing a mixed-methods design employing data mining and focus group discussions, pertinent student data (n=1,305) and qualitative responses (students, n=10; teachers, n=5) from a teacher education college in a state university in Central Visayas, Philippines, were obtained and analyzed through descriptive, correlational, and thematic analyses. The students had very good academic performances in general education, professional education, and specialization courses, and most of them had online capabilities, including gadgets and internet access. No significant relationships were observed between the student’s academic performance and their profiles and distance learning capacity. The distance learning experiences of students and teachers were themed as challenges in adoption, the reality of the digital divide, the journey of the self, the role of the community, and the learning process. In conclusion, students’ profiles and distance learning capacity are not determinants of academic performance, and their experiences reflect the sad reality of distance learning in the first stage of the pandemic.

           bibliometric

    • Authors: Suliyanah Suliyanah; Mohd Zaidi Amiruddin, Binar Kurnia Prahani
      Abstract: The topic of scientific arguments is crucial to discuss because it is one of the basic sciences that has close links with other topics. Moreover, this science has a close relationship with the skills of the 21st century today. This study aims to reveal the current trends in the scientific argumentation field for the last 10 years based on the Scopus database. This study uses quantitative research through bibliometric studies with the keyword scientific argumentation year. The results of this study indicate that the number of article publications during the years 2012 to 2021 on the topic of scientific argumentation has increased on average. However, the most visible increase was in 2018-2021. The United States, Indonesia, and Germany dominated the publication of scientific argumentation topics from 2012 to 2021. As for the top authors were from the United States and Germany. Furthermore, in scientific argumentation, dominated by subject areas based on science, keywords used are argumentation, students, and scientific argumentation. There were several suggestions for the research, namely: i) the need for further research, especially on the differences and similarities of each argumentation; ii) the need to discuss the appropriate scope of argumentation at the appropriate learning level; iii) collaboration between universities that have a focus on this argumentation field. It is highly recommended that the research be more robust; and iv) future research must adapt to the current development of arguments so that the topic does not decline but continues to become the basis for studying other sciences.

  • Development of mathematical mindset scale for mathematics education
           students

    • Authors: Priarti Megawanti; Yetti Supriyati, Awaluddin Tjalla
      Abstract: Mathematical mindset is a vital element of one’s ability to understand mathematics. Teachers’ mindsets affect the way they deliver mathematics to their students, which in turn, will affect students’ mathematical mindsets. This paper discusses and proposes a mathematical mindset scale (MMS) for mathematics education students as prospective teachers. The instrument was developed to examine respondents’ mindset towards mathematics. There are three-stage processes to finalize the items in the instrument. The first stage is theory collection and preparation of instrument items based on the dimensions of challenge, resilience, effort, learning from critics, and learning from mistakes. The second stage is content validation by a team of experts. The final stage is item selection using confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). The CFA results with a total of 259 mathematics education students produced 11 questions with factor loadings above 0.5. Meanwhile, construct reliability (CR) and average variance extracted (AVE) values are all above the criterion values. The limitations of this research are also discussed further.

  • Student perceived value of engineering labs: a lab assessment instrument

    • Authors: Kimberly Cook-Chennault; Ahmad Farooq
      Abstract: Traditionally, engineering labs are expected to reinforce fundamental science, technology, engineering, and mathematical concepts that students need to demonstrate learning in the discipline. The emergence of online degrees, the COVID pandemic, and the development of virtual lab technologies have advanced how educators design lab courses. As these new laboratory environments and practices emerge, the need for tools to evaluate how students experience and value these labs are needed. The Student Perceived Value of an Engineering Laboratory (SPVEL) assessment instrument was designed to address this need. SPVEL is framed on the Technology Acceptance Model, Inputs-Environment-Outcome Conceptual Model, and Engineering Role Identity model. In this work, the SPVEL is validated for in-person engineering laboratories. An Exploratory Load Factor analysis was conducted on the responses to twenty-five questionnaire items using a dataset of 208 participants. The Principal Components Method was employed to extract five factors. Cronbach’s alphas for data reliability for each factor ranged from 0.65 to 0.93, indicating high internal consistency. SPVEL provides a mechanism for elucidating students’ perception of their laboratory experiences, how these experiences influence their engineering role identities, and how students value laboratory experiences as preparatory and reflective of the skills needed for their careers in engineering.

           students’ critical thinking disposition

    • Authors: Jayanti Syahfitri; Muntahanah Muntahanah
      Abstract: Local wisdom-based interactive digital module are alternative teaching materials to facilitate meaningful learning and experience, to stimulate the use of thinking skills including critical thinking dispositions. This study applied quasi-experimental design with pretest and posttest control group. Respondents involved in this study were 109 students from senior high school in Bengkulu, Indonesia. The class selection was carried out randomly to determine the interactive digital module class (X1), the e-module class (X2), and the control class (K). Students’ critical thinking dispositions were measured through the Critical Thinking Disposition in Biology Test (CTDBT) instrument which included 10 questions for each of the seven disposition indicators. The data were analyzed using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Levene test, one-way ANOVA test, and LSD. After the data were known to be normally distributed and homogeneous, an ANOVA test was carried out with the result that there was a significant difference in the experimental class and the control class on students’ critical thinking disposition scores, namely 0.008<0.05. This showed that interactive module improve students’ critical thinking dispositions, compared to e-module and control classes. The critical thinking disposition which increased significantly was shown in the truth-seeking indicator. However, the e-module class did not differ significantly from the control class in improving students’ critical thinking dispositions. Therefore, teachers can use local wisdom-based interactive digital module in biology learning.

  • Are students’ ethical beliefs in an academic setting related to ethical
           decision-making in the workplace'

    • Authors: Aurelius Ratu; Yuni Setyaningsih, Ni Gusti Made Rai, Deti Rahmawati, Eka Dian Savitri, Lienggar Rahadiantino, Banu Prasetyo
      Abstract: When academic integrity is maintained not only in the framework of education but also in professionals’ lives, educational institutions have a moral commitment to generate graduates of high quality for the greater community. Graduates are expected to be both competent and ethical in their professional lives. This study builds on previous academic integrity research to delve into students’ ethical decision-making in real-world situations. During regular class time, undergraduate students from public and private universities in Surabaya, Indonesia, were surveyed (N=496). Using a two-sample t-test approach, the current study found students’ perceptions of their ethical perspective and situations in the workplace differed from their perceptions of themselves in current academic environment. This finding is worrisome because students who perceive themselves as lacking moral consistency believe that they have strong ethical convictions. Even though there was evidence to back up Lawson’s claim that the usefulness of an action is more essential than its ethicality, a workplace ethical decision reveals an anomaly in the operation of ethical decision-making. This study highlights the significance of cultivating risk-related decision-making throughout the educational process and should be encouraged as positive stimulant that prepares students for the ethical difficulties of the professional world.

           preschool teachers

    • Authors: Yang Mingmei; Lim Seong Pek
      Abstract: Teaching is a demanding profession that necessitates complex social and emotional skills. It has frequently been linked to negative outcomes such as tension, turnover, and job discontent. Every day, preschool educators interact with children and adults and must always maintain emotional control. This study aimed to examine the relationship between emotional labor and job satisfaction among preschool teachers. The study utilized a self-questionnaire; 280 first-line preschool teachers in Henan Province, Mainland, China, were selected to disseminate questionnaires. The overall mean score for emotional labor among preschool teachers was 3.90, indicating that these teachers are required to perform a great deal of emotional labor at work. Deep acting received the highest score, surface acting the second highest, and natural acting the lowest. There were considerable differences in emotional labor based on gender, kindergarten type, marital status, age, and job position. The correlation analysis revealed a significant positive relationship between preschool teachers’ emotional labor and job satisfaction. A regression analysis revealed that deep acting positively predicted job satisfaction by a mean of 28.4%.

  • Relationship between student engagement and academic performance

    • Authors: Megi Çali; Loren Lazimi, Beatrice Maria Luna Ippoliti
      Abstract: This research aims to investigate the impact of student engagement on academic performance. Using a sample of 196 students from the University of Tirana, Faculty of Economics, we used multiple regression to assess the effect of behavioral engagement, cognitive engagement, and emotional engagement on student’s performance. The results of the engagement model created using three constructs show a correlation between overall student engagement and academic performance. In this study, we identified that behavioral engagement was the only significant factor for academic performance, while the two other factors, namely, emotional and cognitive engagement were not significant factors for students’ academic performance. We also identified that there was a significant difference between bachelor and master students as well as their year of study. The coefficient for “bachelor and first class” is negative and significant. However, there are no substantial differences between working students and non-working students or their gender in the relationship between engagement and academic performance. Our results provide additional empirical evidence for the higher education institution, teachers, parents and peers and some pointers for policy making. Increasing the engagement of students brings benefits for all involved stakeholders.

  • Personality traits and work performance among academicians in university:
           leadership styles as a mediator

    • Authors: Ninik Setiyowati; Jas Laile Suzana Jaafar, Ahmad Zabidi Abdul Razak
      Abstract: Psychologists have argued that Western-based explanations of personality traits, leadership styles, and work performance may not capture Eastern norms and values. This study compares academicians’ personality traits and work performance in a traditional Indonesian Javanese community using transformational and Asta Brata as western and Hindu philosophy of leadership styles scales, respectively. This study uses transformational and Asta Brata leadership styles to examine how leadership styles act as mediators between personality traits and work performance. The respondents were 342 academics from East Java universities selected using multistage cluster random sampling. The results showed that the transformational leadership style mediates only the relationship between agreeableness with contextual performance and openness to task performance. Asta Brata’s leadership style mediates openness to experience, extraversion, and agreeableness with tasks and contextual performance. In conclusion, academicians recognize that Asta Brata is better than the transformational leadership style as a mediator between personality traits and work performance. These data imply Asta Brata’s leadership approaches better resemble Javanese leadership and are accepted by followers than transformational leadership. Finally, Asta Brata’s leadership styles explain the big five personality traits and work performance better than transformational leadership styles.

  • Concept of circular economy in technical and vocational education: a
           systematic literature review

    • Authors: Norzaharah Ab Hamid; Fathiyah Mohd Kamaruzaman, Mohamad Sattar Rasul
      Abstract: Circular economy emphasizes the principles of reduce, reuse, and recycle. By adopting circular economy concepts in the food system, we can ensure a more resilient and sustainable food supply. Aligned with this, technical and vocational education (TVET) plays an important role in bridging environmental education and the circular economy. Within the realm of TVET, students receive comprehensive training and skill development encompassing subjects related to food preparation and production. Additionally, TVET extends its purview to cover essential areas, including sustainable resource management, renewable energy technology, waste management, and the implementation of environmentally friendly production processes. However, the lack of clear understanding of the circular economy in the education sector requires this to be explored more deeply. Therefore, this study was conducted to identify the nature of published scientific literature on this topic and what are the emerging themes of circular economy of food system in TVET education. A systematic literature review (SLR) was conducted using Scopus, Web of Science (WoS), Education Resources Information Center (ERIC) and Dimensions databases. The result from this analysis revealed that four themes emerged: i) skills and competency; ii) implementation in food system; iii) economy, social, and environmental (ESE) impact; and iv) delivery of content. Based on the derived theme, the concept of circular economy is discussed consisting of four pillars in order to provide a clear understanding about the relation of circular economy in TVET education. The findings of this study expand knowledge and the literature on the circular economy within the context of TVET.

           and confirmatory factor analysis

    • Authors: Maulana Amirul Adha; Christian Wiradendi Wolor, Maisyaroh Maisyaroh, Mustiningsih Mustiningsih, Rudy Ansar
      Abstract: Previous research shows that measuring the quality of student career centers in higher education is not yet fully standardized and is often limited to qualitative approaches. The lack of valid and reliable measuring tools regarding the student career center can hamper efforts to improve and develop this service. The aim of the research is to develop and test a scale for measuring the quality of student career centers in the context of higher education. A quantitative approach with exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was used in this study, with respondents as many as 562 students from three different universities. Analysis and interpretation of the measurement scale evaluation was carried out in two stages, namely exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and continued with CFA. The research results identified that the dimensions of the role of career centers, utilization of career centers, management of workforce information, and fostering entrepreneurship are key elements that influence the effectiveness and impact of career centers in higher education. This scale can practically be used by each institution to evaluate the quality of the career centers they run, and can also be used by other researchers for further research.

      Abstract: This research applies text mining techniques to examine sentiments and themes among Filipino students adjusting to full in-person classes after pandemic-driven flexible learning, focusing on their experiences during April to June 2023–a period usually marked by vacations due to intense heat. By applying the natural language toolkit (NLTK) for sentiment analysis and Scikit-learn for topic modeling, the study gathered data from Filipino students on their in-person class experiences during this unique calendar shift. Post data cleaning, NLTK was used for sentiment analysis and latent Dirichlet allocation for topic modeling. The findings indicate that the high temperatures adversely affected students, as evidenced by frequent references to terms such as “room,” “focus,” and “hard.” The study identified a mix of positive and negative sentiments and highlighted key issues like academic challenges and the learning environment’s impact. This study also offered insights into students’ coping strategies during extreme heat. These results stressed the importance of considering environmental factors in educational planning and provide actionable insights for institutions to enhance the in-person learning experience, particularly in challenging weather conditions. Moreover, this study demonstrates the effectiveness of sentiment analysis and topic modeling in understanding and unraveling student experiences in specific contexts.

  • Unlocking mathematics’ power: interpreting content and context
           within word problems

    • Authors: Abdul Halim Abdullah; Nurain Nadhirah Mohamad, Sitti Fithriani Saleh, Mutmainnah Mutmainnah
      Abstract: Mathematics is a fundamental subject with wide-reaching importance in education, providing students with the tools to apply mathematical principles in diverse contexts. This study examines the abilities of 60 pre-service mathematics teachers (PSTs) in identifying content and context within mathematical word problems. Utilizing a case study approach, the study employed the mathematics word problems test and the content and context questionnaire. The findings reveal that PSTs generally struggle with error detection and content comprehension in mathematical word problems, as demonstrated by their inability to recognize inaccuracies in two of three test questions. The failure of PSTs to identify errors in mathematical word problems often stems from their tendency to rely solely on the solutions they obtain, without first understanding the entire question presented. In essence, they may focus on finding a solution rather than critically evaluating the problem, which can lead to the oversight of errors or inaccuracies within the problem statement itself. This study emphasizes the need for PSTs to grasp mathematical concepts and contextualize them in everyday life scenarios. Challenges were observed in linking computational results to real-world contexts. Thus, the study calls for future research in pre-service teacher education to explore strategies for enhancing critical thinking, error detection, and the integration of practical context in mathematical problem-solving. Furthermore, the study suggests that assessing the ability of PSTs to formulate problem-solving questions evaluates their capacity to answer questions and their ability to construct questions that can enhance students’ cognitive abilities.

           newly-instated state university in the Philippines

    • Authors: Ryan V. Dio; Sheryl S. Solano, Ivy Rose B. Gonzales, Hysa Brigitte D. Guarte
      Abstract: The current university standards of research productivity focus on commercially adopted innovations in various industries. However, as a newly instated university in the Philippines, the Sorsogon State University’s research outputs in various disciplines are still lacking the necessary technology readiness level (TRL) that the industry requires. This descriptive method of research using correlation design utilized archival sources to determine the association between the faculty profile and the TRL of research outputs of the university. It was found that more than half of the 194 regular faculty members are specializing in soft sciences which resulted in the dominance of the basic type of research (250 out of 296) conducted from 2015 to 2020. Using the nine-point National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) scale, the study revealed the right-skewed distribution of TRL assessment of faculty research outputs by area of specialization, almost all reaching TRL 1-4 and were not transferred to the intended beneficiaries. Factors such as academic rank, area of expertise, and highest educational attainment of faculty members were significantly associated with the TRL of their research outputs. Faculty members with the appropriate expertise and education preparation may be given the opportunity to collaborate with potential industry partners as part of the re-engineering process of the university’s research function.

    • Authors: Azam Ghazali; Zakiah Mohamad Ashari, Joanne Hardman, Nur Syahidatun Husna Arif
      Abstract: The capacity to regulate our emotions in unusual circumstances is known as emotional intelligence (EI). EI is now commonly acknowledged as a significant barrier to the performance of students as well as to the big five personality (BFP) of them. In order to find out the effect of EI on individual’s personality, this study was conducted quantitatively to determine i) the level of EI of students in form 2 and 4; ii) gender differences in EI among students in form 2 and 4; and iii) the possibility whether there is a significant relationship between aspects of emotional intelligence and BFP towards form 2 and form 4 students. This study was conducted quantitatively at a Malaysian Secondary School located in Pahang, Malaysia. A set of questionnaires was distributed to 108 respondents at the school. For ethical consideration, the researcher informed the responsible behalf such as regional education department and school and distributed each sample an informed consent form. The findings indicate that self-regulation is the highest level of personality dimension achieved which is m=3.54. On the other hand, there is no significant difference between genders among students in form 2 and 4 affected by EI. Besides, there is a significant relationship between aspects of EI and BFP where the Pearson coefficient, or r-value is 0.674. Future research on interventions that are more appropriate for developing students’ personalities to enhance their EI should be undertaken, according to the implications of this study.

      Abstract: This paper focuses on how to reduce cheating and minimize errors while automatically grading paper-based multiple-choice questions (MCQ) by making the whole process relatively fast, less expensive, more credible, and fairer especially when the number of examinees and number of questions are large. Credibility is obtained when techniques and best practices are introduced in the design process of MCQ. Fairness is obtained by personalizing evaluation through permutation of answers and questions. The distance introduced in personalization has led to the modification of the traditional automatic grading process where an application mapping the test number with its responses in the grading software is loaded automatically at each start of the grading process. On the extracted header fields, 2DFFT is applied as well as the reduction of computed coefficients to obtain the corresponding final local characteristic in the representation. The minimization of image processing errors is then obtained by training a support vector machine (SVM) for handwriting optical character recognition (OCR) using the Mixed National Institute of Standards and Technology (MNIST) dataset with 99.5% accuracy. The tests are carried out in several subjects at Fotso Victor University Institute of Technology (UIT) in Bandjoun and the ColTech of the University of Bamenda and teachers as well as students after investigation have confirmed that our method reduces cheating and improves the error rate during grading with fewer complaints.

  • Online cooperative learning: exploring perspectives of preservice teachers
           after the pandemic

    • Authors: Nisha Chakyarkandiyil; G. S. Prakasha
      Abstract: Mainly, research has explored pre-service teachers’ perspectives toward cooperative learning within face-to-face teaching. However, in a postpandemic scenario, previous research has yet to effectively explore preservice teachers’ (PSTs) perspectives toward online cooperative learning (OCL) in teacher education programs. So, recognizing the gap in the literature, this paper aims to explore the perspectives of PSTs towards OCL. The researchers employed a qualitative research design for the present study. The researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with 10 PSTs who underwent OCL during the pandemic. These PSTs may possess digital proficiency, virtual collaboration abilities, flexibility in evolving educational environments, and an enhanced understanding of online cooperative learning methodologies within modern education. Researchers employed a thematic analysis to analyze the qualitative data obtained. The various themes that emerged from the study are perceived benefits of OCL, challenges to OCL, technological proficiency, learning strategies and support, and building a supportive online learning community. Future researchers may contribute to advancing effective online learning practices by gaining a deeper understanding of pre-service teachers’ perspectives towards OCL through research on a larger scale, including various teacher education programs in various countries.

  • Students’ perception and preference of feedback methods: enhancing the
           quality assurance of higher education institution

    • Authors: Amal Said Al-Amri; Rohana Jani, Yong Zulina Zubairi, Senthil Kumar
      Abstract: This study evaluated students’ perceptions about providing feedback and identified their preferred feedback methods. The study design comprised quantitative and qualitative approaches to ensure a better understanding of students’ perceptions and increase the study’s validity. A structured questionnaire was distributed in five higher education institutions (HEIs) in Oman, followed by a focus group discussion (FGD). A total of 614 students responded to the questionnaire. The quantitative data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, and the qualitative data were analyzed using thematic text analysis. It was observed that although students understand the importance of feedback, they feel that the methods can be improved. Furthermore, HEIs did not share the outcomes with the students, and therefore, students believed that HEIs were not considering their comments. Whilst students preferred anonymous online surveys, they believed that inperson meetings would be even more useful. This paper looked at how the educational well-being of students in Oman can be improved through the development of methods of seeking feedback from institutions. Additionally, this result can be applied worldwide to improve feedback mechanisms.

  • Teachers’ self-perception of scientific competences: a gender
           approach

    • Authors: Yeison Alberto Garcés-Gómez; Valentina Cadavid Alzate, Angélica María Rodríguez Ortiz, Rubén Darío Lara Escobar
      Abstract: This study analyses the self-perception of 274 teachers from public, urban, and rural schools in Manizales, Colombia, using a Likert scale instrument developed considering the scientific competencies determined by UNESCO. In the analysis of the results, it was found that, even though in the sample analyzed, women have greater training in research and scientific competencies, their perception of their abilities in this aspect is lower than that of men. With the Mann-Whitney U test and rank-biserial correlation, it was possible to test the alternative hypothesis that the female self-perception of capabilities is lower than the male for each question. The instrument was validated with the internal consistency index with an α=0.98. Additionally, the instrument has been validated with a confirmatory factor analysis, obtaining values of comparative fit index (CFI) of 0.869 and Tucker-Lewis’s index (TLI) of 0.858 with RMSEA and SRMR of 0.103 and 0.063, respectively. The paper provides insights into the self-perception of scientific competencies among teachers, which can inform teacher training and professional development programs. The study highlighted the gender gap in self-perception of scientific competencies, which can inform policies and interventions to promote gender equity in science education.

  • Challenges, strengths, and relevance of integrating classroombased
           assessment in technical and vocational education training

    • Authors: Siti Raudhah M. Yusop; Mohamad Sattar Rasul, Ruhizan Mohamad Yasin
      Abstract: Technical and vocational education training (TVET) assessment is critical to determine the intended learning outcomes for students. However, the TVET assessment presents several essential obstacles, such as assessing occupational skills disconnected from lesson-learning results. Assessment methods are another contentious topic among academics and other professionals because teachers’ different methods of evaluating students’ work are incompatible with assessment objectives and are a significant issue in TVET assessment. Consequently, this research investigates the challenges and strengths of classroom assessment practices and the relevance of implementing vocational skills. This research uses a quantitative survey methodology to assess the degree of participants agree using descriptive analysis. The study’s findings indicate several challenges associated with administering classroom-based assessment (CA) within the context of TVET. CA is an excellent venue for assessing the students’ acquired knowledge and abilities in education. The TVET assessment must include, in addition to technical skills, generic skills related to Industry 4.0 and career adaptability skills as a student’s learning outcomes. These skills serve as the basis for the development of skills and competencies. Cognitive, psychomotor, and interpersonal qualities are vital in the TVET assessment as a student learning outcome.

      Abstract: Education 5.0@UiTM is transforming Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). This new approach emphasizes flexible learning paths that teach life and cross-disciplinary skills. To make higher education future-ready, universities must adapt fast to the significant global and technical changes caused by the 4th Industrial Revolution and transition from content-based to individualized learning. To ensure students meet Education 5.0@UiTM standards and corporate needs, the evaluation process must be reviewed. Competency-based academic achievement evaluation outperforms grades. This assessment is rarely systematically analyzed. This study was conducted to thoroughly explore the selection of input and output factors in determining student achievement efficiency using the data envelopment analysis (DEA) approach. The study reviewed publications from Scopus, Google Scholar, and Science Direct and found six themes for input variables: human resources, facilities condition and equipment, finance, curriculum, students characteristics, and community resources. output variables included student achievement, satisfaction, graduation rate, employment, research, and community resources. In DEA analysis, input and output selection affects scope, aim, production frontier, efficiency scores, accuracy and completeness. So, characterizing student achievement requires choosing relevant input and output variables. This study can enhance student evaluation processes to prepare college graduates for the next industrial revolution.

      Abstract: In the conditions of the advancing digitalization and the introduction of restrictions aimed at combating the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a search for new formats of learning at universities, the most promising of which the authors believe to be blended learning. The study aims to assess the effectiveness of the development of metacognition in a university blended learning environment. The development of students’ metacognition as part of an empirical study is achieved by a set of methods, the key among which is the experiment. The results of the experimental study suggest that students’ perception of the environment of blended learning tends to improve. In particular, improvement is observed in the indicators of some metacognitive skills (the choice of the place and time of training, planning of learning activities, monitoring of the obtained knowledge, and the experience of working with information). The results reveal improvements in the self-regulatory component of metacognition. As a result of the study, it is concluded that the comprehensive development of metacognitive skills among students ensures their engagement in learning and greater consciousness and proves useful in the context of blended learning.

           learning questionnaire

    • Authors: Van Dat Tran; Thi A Dong Le
      Abstract: In recent years, the motivated strategies for learning questionnaire (MSLQ) has been used to assess students’ motivational orientations and utilization of various learning strategies. Due to its significant effects on student outcomes such as academic performance and careers, research on the factor structure of motivated strategies for learning has received increasing attention. However, the existing literature indicates a dearth of studies focusing on the MSLQ dimensions in Vietnam. Therefore, this study aimed to ascertain the factor structure of the 31-item Student Motivation Scale (SMS), which is a subset of the larger 81-item MSLQ, in the context of Vietnam. The study utilized the Vietnamese version of the SMS to collect data from 317 high school students in Vietnam. The factorial analysis showed that the SMS has its original six-factor structure, which is made up of task value (TV), control beliefs, self-efficacy for learning and performance (SLP), test anxiety (TA), and intrinsic goal orientation (IGO). The present study recommended that school leaders and teachers should use the SMS to assess students’ motivation in the context of Vietnamese education.

  • Socio-science spirituality learning model for cultivating student
           spirituality and science process skills at Islamic schools

    • Authors: Resty Rahmatika; Mohamad Amin, Mimien Henie Irawati Al Muhdhar, Hadi Suwono
      Abstract: Complementing science subjects with spirituality components is almost universal and is a significant requirement in religion-based schools. However, integrating spiritual components into science classes is challenging, particularly in inquiry-based problem-solving tasks. In this experiment, we modified inquiry learning and contextual teaching. We tested the efficacy of a combined model called the socio-science spirituality (3S) model on students’ spirituality and science process skills (SPS). Through a quasi-experiment, this learning model was applied in classes addressing the digestive system, additives and addictive chemicals, and the circulatory system. Following the 3S classroom implementation, we compared the mean pre- and post-test scores of the experimental and control groups using the analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) test and then assessed the relationship between spirituality and SPS in the classrooms using the Pearson-correlation test. The research found that spirituality and SPS were much higher and more prevalent in the experimental group compared to the control group. In the experimental class, there was also a link between spirituality and SPS. Theoretically, this research finding contributes to spiritual education and the development of SPS skills in science classes simultaneously. This research provides a unique way to prioritize the integration of spirituality in science learning. Practically, the research explain the details of the implementation of spirituality that can be applied to inquiry activities in science classes through the 3S model.

  • In-service English teachers’ motivations in the Indonesian teacher
           profession education program

    • Authors: Tri Wintolo Apoko; Bambang Yudi Cahyono
      Abstract: To be certified as professional English teachers, Indonesian teachers must complete the teacher profession education program (TPEP) offered by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology of the Republic of Indonesia. Due to a lack of discussion and research on the motivation of inservice English teachers participating in the TPEP, this study explored the TPEP-related motivation of in-service English teachers. There were 80 inservice English teachers who joined the TPEP at a reputable private university in Indonesia participated in this mixed-method study. A survey questionnaire was distributed to the in-service teachers to know their motivation regarding the TPEP. The findings indicated that the majority of the in-service English teachers were highly motivated to participate in the TPEP. They also thought that TPEP was beneficial for teachers as it enhanced their knowledge and skills in teaching. Through the TPEP they learned to use innovative strategies to teach English such as project-based learning and problem-based learning. This implies that more in-service English teachers should be encouraged to join TPEP to develop their competencies.

  • Instructors’ perceptions and pedagogical approaches to online teaching
           in selected Malaysian private universities

    • Authors: Jing Xiang Heng; Kam-Fong Lee, Mansour Amini, Latha Ravindran
      Abstract: Private university instructors in Malaysia faced obstacles in their adaptation to the online learning mode while holding their pre-existing academic duties. This research aimed to explore those obstacles, and observe how the instructors tailored their pedagogical approaches. The research employed a qualitative research design. We used convenience sampling to select eight instructors from three private universities in Malaysia using semi-structured interviews. The findings revealed that the main challenges were instructors’ own workload and lessened time for professional development, the incompatibility of the provided multimedia with their teaching approaches, as well as the problem with their students’ readiness and participation. It was found that the instructors adapted their pedagogical approaches with a main focus on learners’ cognitive development, and this was hoped to be achieved through their choices of learning tools and multimedia, instructional strategies of collaborative and reflective learning, and consideration of learning outcomes and objectives. The instructors also incorporated their students’ feedback into their content development to increase the engagement. Interestingly, some instructors initiated their own content and approach, while receiving support from their institutes, peers, and other resources. The findings may contribute positively to instructor’s efforts in providing and maintaining an interactive, productive and stable learning environment.

  • Psychology capital and organizational commitment of novice police: the
           mediation effect of career adaptability

    • Authors: Aristianto Budi Sutrisno; Fendy Suhariadi, Suparto Wijoyo, Ian Firstian Aldhi, Teofilus Teofilus, Dwi Hardaningtyas
      Abstract: This research aims to provide an understanding of the mechanisms underlying organizational commitment (OC) by utilizing psychological capital (PsyCap) as an antecedent and career adaptability (CA) as a mediator in this relationship. This study employs the conservation of resources (COR) theory to elucidate how PsyCap and CA can assist organizational members in enhancing OC when assessing the workforce quality in police settings. The study was conducted at police academy and state police school in Indonesia. The sampling technique adopted purposive sampling, targeting novice police totaling 417 individuals. Concerning the relationship between PsyCap and CA denoting a statistically significant positive relationship. This indicates that as PsyCap increases, CA tends to rise as well. The results demonstrate that the relationship between PsyCap and OC is not statistically significant. The relationship between CA and OC indicates an extremely significant positive relationship, meaning that a higher CA leads to an elevated OC. The indirect relationship between PsyCap and OC, when considering the mediating effect of CA on the relationship between PsyCap and OC, implies that PsyCap has a significant positive influence on OC through CA. It can be concluded that CA fully mediates the relationship between PsyCap and OC.

  • Meeting students’ needs: teachers’ practice of multiple intelligences
           in English as second language classrooms

    • Authors: Kamisah Ariffin; Misyana Susanti Husin, Geraldine De Mello, Mohammad Nor Afandi Ibrahim, Nur Hidayatulshima Omar, Nurhamizah Ishak
      Abstract: The multiple intelligence (MI) theory suggests that students learn in different ways based on their intelligence strengths, thus, proposes teachers employ a variety of intelligences to engage students in the teaching and learning process. This study explores the application of MI in the Malaysian English as second language (ESL) classrooms and the extent to which teachers provide instructions that meet the needs of the students in the classroom. Data were procured from a survey questionnaire that gauged teachers’ teaching activities in ESL classrooms under Gardner’s eight constructs of MI: linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, interpersonal, intrapersonal, bodily-kinesthetic, naturalist, and musical. Descriptive statistics using mean score and independent sample t-test was employed in the data analysis procedures. The findings reveal that only 58% of the teachers had knowledge of the MI theory, with only 12% having received formal pedagogical training on MI. In addition, the eight intelligences were not practiced equally. Interpersonal, linguistic, intrapersonal, and spatial intelligences seemed to be the most common strategies employed by teachers in their teaching as these MI are usually measured in the standardized tests while naturalistic and musical intelligences were the least frequently integrated as they are not included in the assessment scale in ESL. Such findings have significant pedagogical implications as classroom teachers should acknowledge the different levels of strengths and motivations in learning among the students. The study highlights the need to provide teachers with training and integrating personalized learning, utilizing students’ strong aspects, and employing a variety of teaching methods in the classroom.

  • English for specific purposes curriculum evaluation from the social
           semiotic perspective

    • Authors: Latifa Ika Sari; Dwi Rukmini, Abdurrachman Faridi, Januarius Mujiyanto
      Abstract: This paper presents an evaluation of an English for specific purposes (ESP) curriculum using the social semiotic perspective. This perspective highlights the importance of authenticity, multimodality, and communicative competence in ESP teaching and learning. Five main components of the ESP curriculum at the Port and Shipping Management Department of a Maritime Polytechnic in Indonesia were evaluated, including the syllabus, lesson plans, resources, teaching activities, and assessment. In conducting the evaluation, the authors developed an evaluation framework based on three existing frameworks, namely Stufflebeam’s context input process product (CIPP) model for evaluation, Kaewpet’s ESP program evaluation, and Tsou and Chen’s ESP program evaluation. Multiple data collection methods were used and multiple perspectives of research participants were invited. The findings of the study revealed that there were several problems in the ESP curriculum of the Port and Shipping Management Department. The main problem was the poorly designed syllabus that has caused drawbacks on the other components, such as irrelevant and unauthentic teaching materials and activities, low variety of teaching media, lack of multimodal resources used in the classroom, and low validity and reliability of assessments. Pedagogical implications regarding the results of the evaluation are also discussed.

  • English learning autonomy among vocational college students in China:
           based on the three-aspect model

    • Authors: Jing Zhang; Siti Zuraidah Md Osman
      Abstract: Based on the three-aspect model of learner autonomy, this study examines levels of English learning autonomy and potential correlation factors, such as gender, admission sources, and field of majors, in a newly-built vocational college in China. The study employs a random sampling survey method and surveyed 280 students from a Chinese public vocational college. After data analysis with quantitative methods, this study found that 48.6% respondents presented high-level English learning autonomy, followed by 43.6% and 7.9% students with moderate-level and low-level English learning autonomy respectively. Additionally, vocational college students developed moderate self-management learning ability (mean=3.57) and autonomous behaviors (mean=3.48) remained to be improved even though vocational college developed high level of autonomous psychology (mean=3.81). With regard to influential factors of English learning autonomy among vocational college students, admission sources can be considered as the most important factor to determine different levels of English learning autonomy, but no significant correlation exists between English learning autonomy and gender or field of majors. In response to such situation, suggestions are put forward to enhance English learning autonomy from the perspective of learning agenda, learning strategies, selfassessment, reflection, and digital learning materials.

  • Language learning strategies of Colombian learners of English as a foreign
           language

    • Authors: José Miguel Marenco Domínguez; José Marín Juanías, Clara Molina
      Abstract: While some studies about language learning strategies (LLS) have been held in Colombia, there is still ample room for research. Particularly, an explanatory sequential mixed methods design can offer insights into how gender, grade level, and perceived language proficiency may influence Colombian students’ selection of strategies for learning English. Furthermore, teachers’ explicit instruction of strategies has not commonly been contrasted with students’ reported use of strategies. This study sought to bridge existing gaps by exploring the favored learning strategies of Colombian learners and teachers at the secondary school level. Data were collected employing the Strategy Inventory for Language Learning and semi-structured interviews with selected participants. The findings suggest that students favor social and metacognitive strategies and use affective strategies to a lesser extent. No significant differences between gender and the overall use of learning strategies were found. Conversely, significant relationships involving students’ grade level, self-perception of English proficiency, and the reported use of LLS were observed. This investigation highlights the importance of boosting affective strategies, exploring teachers’ roles in explicit strategies-based instruction, and integrating diverse types of data to explore the complexity of learning strategies. Recommendations for future inquiries are presented.

    • Authors: Dorela Kaҫauni; Lorena Robo
      Abstract: This study investigated the impact of Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED) Talk videos on students’ presentation performance within the higher education context. Employing a quantitative approach, the study involved 14 first-year students enrolled in a “bachelor in English language” program at “Fan S. Noli” University, Korça, Albania. The research, conducted during the academic year 2022-2023 in “text analysis 1 and 2” modules, explores how the sequential exposure to TED Talk videos influences students’ presentation skills. After watching the initial TED Talk video, students prepared and delivered one presentation, assessed using a rubric. Subsequently, students viewed 10 more TED Talk videos, with two presentations following these viewings. The study’s analysis was facilitated using the statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS) version 20 software program. The Friedman and the Wilcoxon signed-rank tests were used to determine whether there are statistically significant differences among the groups in the repeated-measure design. The findings demonstrate that TED Talk videos play a significant role in enhancing students’ presentation skills. This research contributes to the ongoing discourse on multimedia-enhanced pedagogy and the efficacy of integrating TED Talk as an educational resource, with SPSS version 20 aiding in the quantitative analysis of the obtained data.

  • Corrective feedback on essay writing: English as second language
           teachers’ and students’ perspectives

    • Authors: Muhammad Yaseen; Mohd Hilmi Hamzah, Minah Harun
      Abstract: Many studies have examined how written corrective feedback (WCF) can raise English as a foreign language (EFL) students’ understanding of language concepts. However, not much is known about how students’ perceptions and preferences could influence the effects of WCF. This study examined how Secondary School Certificate (SSC) students and teachers in Pakistan International School, Saudi Arabia, felt about WCF in writing classes. It aimed to identify the WCF aspects of the target language the students preferred. A questionnaire survey was distributed to 30 SSC-level EFL students and 10 teachers at the school who participated voluntarily in the study. The findings revealed that the students had sympathetic perspectives despite having preferences for WCF. They mainly believed that WCF might help them enhance their language knowledge and writing abilities. Through WCF, they learned what to avoid and how to write better. The teachers also found WCF helpful in enhancing the basic understanding of the target language. The findings showed that the students and teachers believed direct WCF to be the most effective technique for improving the former’s writing abilities, followed by indirect strategies such as underlining errors or providing codes. The research was considered relevant and pertinent as it addressed diverse aspects of WCF.

      Abstract: University students in early adulthood indeed encounter diverse developmental demands, particularly in the realm of relationships and social development. This stage often involves considerations related to establishing families and entering into marriage or long-term partnerships. This study aims to assess the efficacy of a premarital counseling program grounded in the Adlerian approach in enhancing intimacy and social interest among a sample of single university students. The sample comprised 718 single young individuals from a public university in Jordan. Among them, 38 students displaying low social interest and experiencing fear of intimacy voluntarily participated. They were divided into two groups: an experimental group of 19 participants and a control group of 19 participants. The study utilized two measurement scales-one for fear of intimacy and another for social interest. The group counseling program, consisting of 11 sessions, was administered. The findings revealed significant differences between the experimental and control groups in pre- and post-measurements, indicating the positive impact of the group counseling program on the experimental group. Additionally, follow-up assessments indicated that the beneficial effects of the group counseling program were sustained over time.

  • Factors antecedents of student learning satisfaction: evidence of online
           learning in Indonesia

    • Authors: Ida Bagus Putu Puja; Anak Agung Gede Agung, I Gusti Ketut Arya Sunu, I Putu Wisna Ariawan
      Abstract: COVID-19 has had a broad impact on learning in schools. There is a change in the learning model in online mode, this change also affects changes in student learning behavior including how to increase student learning satisfaction through online learning. Many studies have discussed online learning, but it is still limited to how student learning satisfaction is formed during online learning. This study examines the effect of perceived service quality, social media utilization, teacher techno-pedagogical competencies, and students’ motivation to learn online on student learning satisfaction. A total of 345 state vocational school students in Gianyar Regency, Bali, Indonesia were involved in this study. Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) analysis was used to test the hypothesis of this study. The results of the study show that students’ online learning satisfaction is significantly influenced by the quality of educational services and students’ online learning motivation. Meanwhile, other antecedent factors such as the use of social media and teacher competence proved to not affect student learning satisfaction. This study also found that students’ learning motivation was influenced by the quality of educational services. Meanwhile, the factors of using social media and teacher competency did not significantly influence student learning motivation. Lastly, this study also revealed that students’ online learning motivation proved to have no role as a mediator on the effects of quality of education services, use of social media, and teacher competency on the learning satisfaction of vocational school students.
