           Leaders

    • Authors: KUMARAN GENGATHARAN
      Abstract: This study aims to obtain expert consensus on the constructs of personal leadership competencies for Malaysia Matriculation College middle leaders using the approach of the Fuzzy Delphi Method (FDM). A list of instruments containing the proposed construct and all the elements are given to 30 experts from various fields and backgrounds. This study's finding indicates that most of the experts agree with the proposed constructs and elements in the personal leadership competencies. The threshold values for all the 14 elements tested met the requirements of d ≤ 0.2. All the expert agreements achieved above the targeted percentage, which is between 75% and 100%. The Alpha-cut value also met the requirement needed between 0.878 and 0.950, which is above the threshold of 0.5 (α-cut ≥ 0.5). Through FDM, the defuzzification process was carried out to rearrange all the elements based on the experts' ranking agreed. This study successfully presents a new construct by considering the crucial elements in middle leaders' competencies in the Malaysian context.

  • EFL Teachers’ Perceptions on Professional Development for Language
           Proficiency Maintenance and Improvement

    • Authors: Utami Widiati; Him’mawan Adi Nugroho, Ani Susanti
      Abstract: This study aimed at investigating the phenomenon of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teachers’ perceptions of professional development (PD) particularly related to language proficiency. English teachers’ language proficiency has become a critical issue in the field of EFL teaching and has played an important role in helping the students to learn English well. Therefore, EFL teachers’ PD is essential for the teachers to support their learning leading to their fulfillment of their duty as professional English teachers. This qualitative study used in-depth interview as the main data collection instrument to elicit information about PD activities related to language proficiency maintenance and improvement. The participants of the study were six profesional EFL teachers who have had experience of teaching English ranging from 5 to 30 years of teaching. The results showed that the participants perceived professional development for language proficiency as an important activity and continuous learning which is influenced by pedagogical environment or working context and individual language proficiency awareness. The study also revealed that PD activities for language proficiency were rarely offered by the government. Teachers then have to autonomously and individually join and participate in such activities. Finally, it is recommended that Indonesian EFL teachers develop self-awareness of the importance of improving their skills not only pedagogically but also professionally and realize that PD for language proficiency in particular is imperative to help them keep their professionalism high.

  • Researching professional EFL lecturers in the industry 4.0: A curriculum
           perspective

    • Authors: Habiburrahim Habiburrahim; Saiful Akmal, Ika Kana Trisnawati, Suryanto Suryanto, Maira Mustiranda, Safrul Muluk
      Abstract: The issue of professional EFL lecturers in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0) era has received considerable attention. However, very few studies on this subject have been conducted in Indonesia, particularly at State Islamic Universities. To address this gap, researchers conducted a qualitative study in which we examine how EFL lecturers maintain their professionalism in the IR 4.0 era and the curriculum approach that best meets current teaching and learning needs. The researchers applied a purposive sampling approach in selecting the participants for this study. Eleven EFL lecturers from a state Islamic university in Banda Aceh, Indonesia were chosen to participate in this study. The findings of this study indicate that EFL lecturers must continue to learn and improve their digital and technological competency in order to maintain their professionalism. In terms of curriculum approach, EFL lecturers believe that taking an interdisciplinary approach and providing more opportunities for students to focus on applied skills are essential parts of their teaching professionalism in the IR 4.0 era.

           Philippines

    • Authors: Cristie Ann L. Jaca
      Abstract: This study determined and analyzed the extent of readiness in the implementation of the kindergarten curriculum and the challenges encountered by teachers in public elementary schools in the Division of Cebu City, Philippines. It employed the mixed method using quantitative – qualitative technique. The study was conducted in DepEd’s Cebu City Division, with Kindergarten teachers and school heads that served as research-respondents who answered the adapted instrument on contextualizing Kindergarten curriculum. The gathered data were treated using descriptive and inferential statistics supported by thematic analysis. The study revealed that teachers are always ready on the implementation of the Kindergarten curriculum. Further, the study finds that there is a significant relationship between age, educational qualification, and years of teaching experience of teachers in the use of available materials. Furthermore, there is a significant difference on the school environment when grouped by its clustered district. The study concluded that the implementation of the contextualized Kindergarten curriculum based on availability of instructional materials, forms of learning, evaluation method of learners, and school environment were always made available for teachers to use. After the school heads’ answers were transcribed, coded, categorized and analyzed, there were three themes that came out namely: preparation time, development of instructional materials, and the need for teacher training. The implementation of the Kindergarten curriculum has received different feedback from teachers.  Their expressed challenges are categorized into: Language Difficulties, Preparation Time, and Instructional Materials Development.

  • Teaching International Students to Analyze Textual-Discursive Categories

    • Authors: Ivanna Fetsko; Ilona Novak, Liubov Terletska, Oksana Soshko, Oksana Lytvynko
      Abstract: The purpose of the study is to identify how the course that covers the components of the ten step-wise approach to discourse analysis of political texts helps international students study the political meanings in Ukraine. The study used the structured observation method to collect rather quantitative than qualitative data and observers’ reports on the sampled students’ performance in the in-class and out-of-class assignments. It also used discourse analysis awareness test, observation report checklist, and assessment checklist to yield the quantitative data. The course that is based on the ten-step-wise approach to discourse analysis of political texts proved to raise the students’ overall awareness of analysis of textual-discursive categories and fosters their skills of both discourse analysis and technical skills to use the NVivo 12 software tool. The results of the discourse analysis awareness test showed that the sampled students’ awareness of discourse analysis was generally good. The mean values varied between 0.643 and0.857 which corresponded to 65-85 grades ECTS. The analysis of the observation reports showed that the five most frequent words used in the corpus of the observation reports of seven experts were as follows:  students, contributed, equally, succeeded, managed. All of them evoke a positive idea and feeling and reveal success in meeting goals. The quotes yielded from the reports implied that the course sessions were engaging, challenging, and fruitful in terms of learning how to analyze textual-discursive categories found in political texts.

  • Gamifications: Lexical and Trajectory Image (Image Representation) Methods
           as Cognitive Intervention in Teaching and Learning Numeracy

    • Authors: Raja Noor Farah Azura Raja Ma'amor Shah
      Abstract: This paper describes a study with the goal of exposing children to gamification activities in teaching and learning numeracy based on the lexical method by implementing a Trajectory Image (Image Representator). Early childhood learning difficulties in understanding abstract and symbolic numerical concepts and procedures have been identified as an issue that needs to be addressed and acted as a starting point in the effort to shape the transformation of early childhood mathematics both in teaching and learning.  Therefore, this study would like to inspect the role played by language as the medium used in translating the concept of numeracy whether it is applied contextually or in a variety of contexts.  The respondents selected for this study were 10 teachers and 50 preschool children and a numeracy module instrument based on the Numeracy Comprehension Level Model Framework (MPKN) was chosen and applied to students by using lexical and image methods called Trajectory Image or Image Representator. Findings have shown that the understanding of preschool children related to previous aspects of numeracy is still at Level 1 and Level 2.  It clearly stated that children are still unable to grasp the concept of numeracy in detail.  This study has introduced the Numeracy Comprehension Level Model Framework and LexsMath gamification products that have successfully provided a clear understanding to children regarding the in-depth understanding of numeracy aspects from Level 1 to Level 4.  Furthermore, the outcomes of this study have shed some light on more effective teaching methods that can be employed in the aspect of numeracy teaching and learning which at the same time helps teachers in diversifying teaching methods in the field of numeracy.

  • Madrasah Teacher Professionalism: Involving Gender and Teaching Experience
           in Learning

    • Authors: Syahraini Tambak; M. Yusuf Ahmad, Amril Amril, Desi Sukenti
      Abstract: Developing profesional madrasah taechers are increasingly popular in the teaching classrooms. But regarding developing professional madrasah teacher in teaching, mixed results are reported without clear reasons for this. This article addresses the impact of gender and teaching experience on developing professional madrasah teacher in teaching. To developing professional madrasah teacher, madrasah teacher teaching experinces and gender are used as a reference. A research project, using questionnaires, was carried out in two types of aliyah madrasah (public and private madrasah) at seventy-five madrasahs. Data from 325 madrasah teachers was collected and involved in this research. This analysis is differentiated based on the level, gender, and level of teaching experince of madrasah teachers in the developing professional teacher competencies being assessed. The results show that the developing professional teacher is low and is related to the gender of the madrasah teacher, that man perceive themselves to be higher in the developing professional teacher than women, and that even teaching experince analysis with developing professional competence and implementation in the classroom. Developing of professional madrasah teacher that has teaching for more than 30 years is less accurate than teachers who have teaching experiences of between 21-30 years, 10-20 years, and < 10 years. However, it is important to show that there is a significant relationship between gender and the developing of professional teaching of madrasah teachers who teach for more than 30 years: the developing of professional teachers for male madrasah teachers who teaching experinces for more than 30 years is less accurate than woman. It is necessary to examine the reasons behind this difference and to look for professionalism teaching competences to improve the developing of the professional madrasah teacher.

           of Technology

    • Authors: Ching Hao Chua
      Abstract: Student-centered teaching methods and technology are often viewed as effective tools to raise students’ performance and interest in Mathematics learning. Limited research exists on discussion of teaching methods and the use of technology on the General Certificate of Education (GCE) A-Level Mathematics. The purpose of this qualitative research where data were collected using semi-structured interviews was to explore how A-Level Mathematics teachers used teaching methods and technology for the delivery of Mathematics instruction. Convenience sampling was applied, the participants were seven A-Level teachers from a private college in Johor, Malaysia. The gathered responses were analyzed using thematic analysis based on the approaches suggested by Braun and Clarke. The findings of this research reported that while Mathematics teachers revealed they made some attempts in incorporating technology and student-centered teaching approaches to their classes, traditional teaching approaches such as chalk-and-talk and drill-and-practices remained to be the dominant teaching approaches they would use in their classes. In order to have a closer examination between the relationship of students’ interest and students’ performance in Mathematics, the researcher suggests the future direction of study on the development of a teaching module which serves as a reference guide to alleviate the above-mentioned teachers’ concerns.

    • Authors: Alfonso Abad Mancheño; Ana Cristina León Mejía, Roberto Sánchez Cabrero
      Abstract: This article presents the results of a research study on the role that affective motivation plays in learning a second language (L2). 171 American university students of Spanish, German, Italian and Japanese as a second language participated in the study. This is an ex post facto, cross-sectional and correlational quantitative study that informs us of which is the type of motivation most beneficial for learners and takes into account variables such as age, gender, academic performance and the intention to continue studying a second language. An online questionnaire based on the Dörnyei motivational model [1], [2] was administered. The results show that the variables ideal-self and “projection of intended effort” of the learners are positively and significantly related to the academic performance of the students and to the intention of enrollment in future foreign language classes. At the opposite extreme, the deontic self or ought-to-self does not correlate significantly with any of the rest of the variables considered. Regarding the cross-sectional analysis of age and gender, no significant differences were found in gender, but there was a negative and significant correlation between age and academic performance, and positive and significant correlation between age and projected effort.

      Abstract: This research paper focuses on the effects of the parent autonomy factor that supports the needs of students in STEM learning and builds the interest of students in STEM careers. This study is a quantitative research study that was conducted using the Questionnaire of the Parental Authority (PAQ). Based on the research objective, the questions in the PAQ were altered to evaluate the effects of parents on student interest in STEM careers and adapted to the purpose of the study. The PAQ comprises a scale of 1-10 ranging from strongly disagree to strongly agree. Research respondents included 419 upper secondary students from national schools in Malaysia, and the research used a proportionate stratified random sampling technique. The research objective is to determine parents’ autonomy towards the development of students’ STEM career interest and the data was analyzed using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The results found that the autonomy of parents significantly affected upper secondary students in the development of STEM careers of students. The research question was answered by proving that the autonomy of parents is directly significant (p<.001). Results showed that parents explicitly offer meaningful impacts and valuable values to motivate students of the science stream at the secondary level to ensure that their STEM career interests are well nurtured. It is hoped that the findings from this research will provide useful insight into the learners and lead to the value of autonomy of parents in promoting a curriculum design that suits the needs of students in the future.

  • Simulated computer adaptive testing Method Choices for ability estimation
           with empirical evidence

    • Authors: Jumoke I Oladele; Mdutshekelwa Ndlovu, Erica D. Spangenberg
      Abstract: Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) is a technological advancement for educational assessments that requires thorough feasibility studies through computer simulations to have strong testing foundations. This advancement is especially germane in Africa being adopters of technology, and this should not be done blindly without empirical evidence. A quasi-experimental design was adopted for this study to establish methodological choices for CAT ability estimation. Five thousand candidates were simulated with 100 items simulate through the 3-parameter logistic model. The simulation design stipulated a fixed-length test of thirty (30) items, while examinee characteristics were drawn from a normal distribution with a mean of 0 and Standard Deviation of 1. Also, controls for the simulation were set not to control item exposure or to use the progressive restricted method. Data gathered were analysed using descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (Two-way Multivariate Analysis of Variance: MANOVA) for testing the generated hypotheses. This study provided empirical evidence for choosing methods of ability estimation for CAT as part of the efforts geared towards designing accurate testing programmes for use in higher education.

           Largest Muslim Country

    • Authors: Choirudin Choirudin; I Nyoman Sudana Degeng, Dedi Kuswandi, Purnomo Purnomo, Aprezo Pardodi Maba
      Abstract: Career problems for Muslim students include not understanding how to choose a study that matches their abilities and interests, not having information about the world of work, still being confused about choosing a job. Still, not being able to choose a job that matches their abilities and interests, feeling anxious about getting a job after graduating from school, not having a choice of higher education or an inevitable continuation of education, not entering the world of work after graduation, and not yet having an overview of the characteristics, requirements, abilities, and skills needed in work, as well as job prospects for his future career. Participants included 302 Muslim students consisting of 85 boys (28%) and 217 girls (78%) with an average age of 20.03 years. The analysis shows no significant correlation between students' thinking styles based on age and place of residence. However, the difference in age correlates to students who have a thinking style. There is also a correlation between gender and age with students' self-efficacy with social persuasion. The subsequent analysis shows a significant positive correlation between career readiness and the legislative, liberal, hierarchical, global, executive, local, anarchic, oligarchic and internal conservative, oligopoly, and Internal. The latest analysis shows that a significant positive correlation between self-efficacy and career readiness. The higher the students have career readiness, the higher the students tend to have self-efficacy mastery experience. Our findings further confirm a significant role between different thinking and self-efficacy styles and the context of career readiness for students from low-income families who are Muslim.

      Abstract: Gamification carries the element of fun and creativity into classroom teaching. It is not an unusual fact that playing games varied among learners and created an effective classroom environment. In the 21st-century teaching era, learners’ fun and creative learning environment are prioritised. Lessons filled with fun games are believed to produce a positive outcome during a lesson. Therefore, gamification prepares learners to be active and take responsibility for their learning. This study aimed to explore learners’ comprehension of the term ‘gamification’ and the effects of gamified elements implemented in the lesson on the targeted learners. A set of questionnaires was administered through an online survey to 100 respondents from local primary schools around Selangor who took part in a service-learning programme. The data was then analysed and presented in the form of tables. Results showed that respondents had prior knowledge of the term ‘gamification’ and the game culture’s overall context. The respondents agreed that their respective teachers had implemented several game elements when conducting a gamified lesson. Results also indicated that respondents were in preference to learn using gamified learning activities that helped them learn subconsciously.

      Abstract: The flipped classroom is very helpful for students to understand learning material, but it is still very minimally used, especially in history learning, so the purpose of this study is to analyze the influence of the flipped classroom model in history learning to improve students' critical thinking. This study uses a method using a quasi-experimental nonequivalent control group design, by dividing into two class groups, namely experimental and control. The population uses class X high school students in Yogyakarta, with a sample of 121. The sampling technique uses cluster random sampling, while data collection uses observation, interviews, and instruments in the form of critical thinking tests. Data analysis used an independent sample t-test and N-gain score test to analyze the effect of a flipped classroom in history learning to improve critical thinking. The results showed that the flipped classroom in history learning had a significant effect on improving students' critical thinking skills as evidenced by the independent sample t-test test with a significance value of 0.000 <0.05, and the N-gain score test which was included in the moderate criteria. So, the flipped classroom model in history learning is very relevant to be used and implemented by teachers so that learning objectives are achieved so that history learning can run well and optimally.

           electrotechnical disciplines at the university in the face of COVID-19
           pandemic

    • Authors: Viktor Shurygin; Alexander Deryagin, Lyubov Krasnova, Ilmir Sahabiev
      Abstract: Studying physics and many related disciplines at all education levels includes not only learning the theoretical material, but also the formation of skills and abilities to apply the knowledge gained in practice. This occurs mainly during laboratory work when students directly contact with specific laboratory equipment. With the forced transition to distance learning due to the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the main difficulties in many universities arose precisely during the implementation of laboratory workshops. The purpose of this study is to analyze the possibilities of modern digital teaching aids for the effective remote implementation of a laboratory workshop in physics and related disciplines. The study was carried out at the premises of the Yelabuga Institute of the Kazan Federal University. The study was carried out on the basis of the Yelabuga Institute of the Kazan Federal University. Seventy-nine (79) students took part in the experiment (second- and third-year students). The results obtained show that a well-arranged combination of various digital tools and technologies makes it possible to effectively implement laboratory works in physics and electrotechnical disciplines in a distance learning format. The research results may be useful for university teachers using distance learning technologies in laboratory work in natural science disciplines.

  • No More Pygmalion: Perceived Teachers’ Expectations, Societal Mattering
           and Educational Self-efficacy in the Online Classroom

    • Authors: Jun Ren Tung; Jin Chin Hee, Kususanto Ditto Prihadi
      Abstract: Studies before the outbreak reported that lecturers' and teachers’ expectancy were observable to the students from their classroom behavior and, in turn, affect the students' educational self-efficacy (ES). Our study was conducted to investigate whether the aforementioned finding still holds in the compulsory online learning environment during the CoVid-19 pandemic. Online learning was not the only implication of the social distancing policy during the pandemic, any form of social interactions among university students was affected up to the point that they rely more on social media to obtain social feedback that eventually altered the way they evaluate themselves. Because this phenomenon might lead to the way students develop the sense that they matter to their society (societal mattering, SM) we hypothesized that SM would be a stronger predictor of ES than the students’ perception of the educators’ expectancy. Nevertheless, the data we collected from 361 purposively recruited students from universities in Indonesia and Malaysia indicated that their perceptions of teachers’ expectancy were no longer a significant predictor of ES when the social mattering was controlled for. Further implications, limitations, and suggestions are discussed.

  • Students’ satisfaction on learning calculus using ODL method during
           COVID-19 outbreak

    • Authors: Rusliza Ahmad; Zulkifli Mohd Ghazali, Muhammad Syawal Abd Halim
      Abstract: In early 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Malaysia, all higher education institutions had to switch from face-to-face learning to Open and Distance Learning (ODL) method. The main purpose was to prevent any further spread of the COVID-19 virus. The aim of this study is to identify factors carrying impacts on students’ satisfaction in learning calculus using ODL method. The sample consists of 224 students of Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Perak Branch, Tapah Campus who took calculus subjects using ODL method during the COVID-19 lockdown in Malaysia. Five factors are found to influence students’ satisfaction towards ODL calculus: (1) student-lecturer interaction, (2) lecturer performance, (3) ODL course evaluation, (4) design, and (5) technical. By using Partial Least Square (PLS) – SEM, the results show that lecturer performance has a large effect size on students’ satisfaction. Technical and design factors have medium effect sizes, while the ODL course evaluation and student-lecturer interaction have small effect sizes. This research provides useful insights for an effective planning of online calculus courses by considering all factors that influence students’ satisfaction.

  • Video based Multimedia on Learners’ Attitude towards Physics: Gender
           Equity and School Location

    • Authors: Gabriel Janvier Tugirinshuti; Leon Rugema Mugabo, Alexis Banuza
      Abstract: Educational literature is richly provided with research confirming the benefits of video based multimedia in education. So, understanding learners’ attitude about learning using video based multimedia make sense. This study reports on a convergent parallel mixed methods research design that analyses and interprets learners’ attitudes in the context of learning astrophysics using video-based multimedia (VBM). Two hundred and ninety-four (294) students (168 boys and 126 girls) of senior five (Grade 11) of ages between 16 to 21 years were purposively selected from eight public secondary schools in Rutsiro and Rubavu districts, Rwanda. Data were collected using a questionnaire (Cronbach alpha= .87), a semi-structured interview, and class observation. Descriptive statistics and t-test (P  level of significance) were used for quantitative data analysis while qualitative data were analysed using content analysis. The results revealed that there is no significant difference between boys’ and girls’ attitude towards the use of VBM in learning astrophysics. Besides, the geographical location of the school influences the learners’ attitude. The results of the study also revealed some factors that affect learners’ attitude towards learning astrophysics using VBM. Moreover, the findings of this study provide evidence on the need for more consideration to how the identified challenges could be alleviated not only in Rwandan physics classroom but in other educational science subjects worldwide.

           Motivation

    • Authors: Fajar Indra Kusuma; Nunuk Suryani, Sri Sumaryati
      Abstract: Online learning is a solution used during the Covid 19 pandemic. This study aims to determine the conditions of learning during the pandemic and the development of mobile application-based learning media. This research is the result of a survey conducted on 126 students of the Civil Engineering Vocational High School (SMK) in Surakarta. This research is a Research and Development (R&D) research in the context of developing mobile application-based learning media. The development model adapted in this study is the Alessi and Trolip media development model. The adaptation stages in this research are planning, design, and development. The results of the development of learning media by researchers indicate that experts and students have positive opinions about this Cellular Application-based learning media. All experts from media experts, materials experts and expert practitioners stated that this media is "Very Worthy". The results of the perception questionnaire of 126 students in Surakarta also rated this media "Very Worthy" with a percentage value of 86.30%. In addition, learning media based on Mobile Applications is proven to be effective in increasing students' learning motivation at SMK Surakarta. With the acquisition of scores based on the results of statistical tests with the help of the SPSS 25 program, obtained a significance level of 0.000 less than 0.025 (0.000 < 0.025), or or tcount > t table for learning motivation, namely 10.450>2, 000 while the value then Ho is rejected and Ha is accepted or there is a difference in mean between the experimental class and the control class. In addition, the posttest average value of the experimental class students' learning motivation was higher with a score of 86.6 when compared to the control class which only had a score of 75.9. These results indicate that learning using mobile application-based learning media is more effective than classes that do not use mobile or conventional-based learning media.

  • Studying Online from Home and Social Anxiety among University Students:
           The Role of Societal and interpersonal Mattering

    • Authors: Ahmad Naufal Fawwaz; Kususanto Ditto Prihadi, Endah Kurniawati Purwaningtyas
      Abstract: Literature suggested that the enforcement of lockdowns such as the Movement Control Order (MCO) had limited physical social interaction and therefore increased the inclination on social media and other means of digital communication. This shift of social pattern was reported to alter the way young adults develop their mattering, the sense of how much they matter to others. While mattering has been reported as the protective factors against social anxiety, this study aims to investigate the contribution of interpersonal mattering and societal mattering on social anxiety among university students who had to study online from home during the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2021. Purposive sampling was conducted to recruit 158 participants (89 females, 69 males) with their ages ranging from 18 to 25 years of age (M=21.77, SD=1.54) to respond to Mattering to Others Questionnaire, University Mattering Scale, and Social Phobia Inventory. The results of multiple linear regression supported the hypotheses that both types of mattering negatively predict social anxiety, and that interpersonal mattering was no longer a significant predictor when controlling for societal mattering. The controversy of these findings towards many previous studies is discussed at the end of this paper.

  • Efficacy, Expectancy, or the Sense of Mattering' Academic
           Procrastination in Online Study

    • Authors: Hong Chun Yeoh; Susanna Poay Lin Hong, Kususanto Ditto Prihadi
      Abstract: Past studies reported that academic procrastination (AP) was contingent upon students’ educational self-efficacy (ESE) and the expectancy-value belief (EVB), which were developed through social interaction. When teaching and learning in most universities were altered into online learning (OL) during the pandemic, students’ social interaction was more inclined toward online communication, especially through Social Networking Sites (SNS); a phenomenon that has been reported to alter their sense of societal mattering (SM), the sense that they matter to the society. We hypothesized that SM moderates the mediation of EVB on the association between ESE and AP. We purposively recruited 361 university students who must study fully online from home during the outbreak and asked them to respond to the designated scales. The bootstrap analysis with 5000 samples and a 95% confidence interval showed that the moderated mediation hypothesis was supported. Students who believe that they can perform well tend to value their tasks higher, and therefore had a lower rate of procrastination. However, this mediation did not occur among students who do not think that they matter enough to the university as a society. Further explanations, limitations, and suggestions are discussed.

  • Ethical Environments in University and Plagiarism Evidence from Indonesia

    • Authors: SeTin SeTin; Santy Setiawan, Debbianita Debbianita
      Abstract: Accountant Educators are among those who are blamed for scandals in practice because the journey of ethical learning is believed to begin in the college. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the perceptions of accountant educators about the ethical environment in colleges and plagiarism behavior. More specifically, this study compares the perceptions of accountant educators at (1) state and private universities and (2) A-accredited universities and B-accredited universities, and examines the relationship between ethical environment and plagiarism. Comparative analysis (t test and one-way ANOVA) and regression analysis methods are used for data analysis. Based on the responses of 147 accountant educators, it was found that accountant educators who work at state universities and at A-accredited universities perceive an ethical environment significantly stronger than accountant educators who work at private universities and at B-accredited universities. Average of the respondents perceive plagiarism behavior as unethical. There are differences in the perception of the ethical environment in terms of gender and academic position, and there are significant differences in plagiarism behavior in terms of type and institutional accreditation, working period, and academic position. The findings also show that the perception of the ethical environment has a negative effect on plagiarism behavior.

      Abstract: Consultation is an act of discussing certain issue between two or more parties. Consultation is considered very importance especially in the context of higher education. The Novel Coronavirus 2019 has shifted the education paradigm into digital dependency, including consultation management between students and academicians. However, lack of studies has been conducted on the roles of self-efficacy towards user behavioural intention to use online consultation management system in the aftermath of a pandemic. Therefore, the objective of this paper is to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy and user behavioural intention to use online consultation management system. An instrument was developed by adopting previous studies on technology acceptance. In term of respondents, 270 students were selected based on convenience sampling. Findings were analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 26 and SmartPLS version 3.2.8. Results show that all hypotheses were supported. Self-efficacy has a positive and significant relationship with perceived usefulness and ease of use. On the other hand, both perceived usefulness and ease of use has a significant and positive relationship with attitude towards using online consultation management system.

  • Factors that Influence Malaysian-Based Financial Literacy Model to Promote
           Values, Accountability and Practices among Secondary School Students

    • Authors: Yin Yin Khoo; Rohaila Yusof, Wei Chooi Yee
      Abstract: Most of the young generation do not realize the importance of decision making, money-saving, and budget planning. Consequently, a total of 47% of bankruptcies in Malaysia occurred among young adults between the ages of 18-35. Young individuals account for the majority of bankruptcies, public awareness of financial literacy should be raised. More effective teaching in secondary school has attracted researchers' attention. One of the general objectives of the Malaysian curriculum for the students is to practice moral values. Money-saving can be considered as one of the moral values. Still, school teachers have to cover many other academic topics, and they always feel overburdened with all types of examination-oriented textbooks. Students' value towards money and attitude influence their financial decision.  Other factors needed in financial literacy are decision-making and accountability Since students and technology are aligned to create new learning possibilities in Education 4.0, educators must create a proper financial literacy model to improve human values. This study aimed to examine factors that influence students' human values in financial literacy. This study had instilled human values to encourage students to practice time-saving, decision making, money-saving, and other values related to their well-being in the future. Survey was employed in this study.  Then, a video that integrated financial literacy and human values with a Malaysian-based real-world learning experience was created in stage two. In addition, the questionnaire was administered to 327 secondary school students after they watched the video. The Structural Equation Modeling method was used to determine the factors that influenced the financial literacy  model. The findings from the analysis retained five elements: practices, decision making, accountability and human values. Future research can focus on  a comparative analysis with neighbouring countries.

  • What first-year medical students said about their learning of empathy

    • Authors: Bulan Kakanita Hermasari; Dian Nugroho
      Abstract: Empathy is one of the core competencies that doctors must possess. Teaching empathy is carried out since students are in medical education. One of the learning activities that can be used to improve empathy skills is reflection. Many studies have reported on the empathic abilities of medical students. In addition, there have also been many scientific articles discussing the factors that affect the ability of empathy. However, how medical students learn empathy is still unclear, especially for first-year students who have just been exposed to medical science after graduating from high school. This study aims to understand how first-year medical students learn empathy. A qualitative study with a phenomenological approach has been carried out. A total of 30 medical student reflection journals were analyzed using content analysis techniques. There are three themes, namely stimulus, process, and effect. Medical students learn empathy driven by internal and external stimuli so that a thinking process occurs through several learning activities. The existence of this stimulus and process influences both the self and the patient/client. The whole process of empathy learning can show how early-year students learn and the factors that influence student empathy learning. This study supports other research that discusses the learning process and factors that affect medical students' empathy. This result can encourage curriculum planners to design appropriate empathy learning for students.

  • How to Survive and Thrive' The Potentials of Organizational
           Socialization in Educational Adaptation

    • Authors: Adi Suryani; Soedarso Soedarso
      Abstract: Entering higher education and starting new living can be challenging for new students. They need many information to integrate themselves to new communities and conform to new organizational culture, systems and programs. Organizational socialization is one of several socialization options which may promote the new students’ adjustment process, facilitate their learning process to survive and thrive. Despite the important role of organizational socialization, it is still under-examined in educational sector. Thus, this study aims to analyse educational factors enabling the new students to educationally survive and thrive. The data are collected through twenty-two new students’ narrative text, freely voicing their experiences in higher education at their first semester. The collected data are analyzed by employing thematic, within and cross case analysis, underpinned by interpretivism paradigm. The study finds that the new students’ educational survival and thriving needs the elaboration of organizational, social and emotional experiences into academic determination. Thus, the study challenges the dominant power of academic rigor in determining the educational thriving. Instead, the study suggests the new defined educational thriving concept by recognizing the roles of social, organizational and emotional roles, as presented in the reconstructed educational thriving triangle model.TRANSLATE with x EnglishArabicHebrewPolishBulgarianHindiPortugueseCatalanHmong DawRomanianChinese SimplifiedHungarianRussianChinese TraditionalIndonesianSlovakCzechItalianSlovenianDanishJapaneseSpanishDutchKlingonSwedishEnglishKorean

      Abstract: The article aims to analyze the perception of professional skills acquired in online learning among electronic engineering students. The research method is qualitative, with a descriptive approach, since it focuses on analyzing the statistics of the students' perception (frequency of satisfaction levels). Initially, the reliability of the instrument was determined using Cronbach's Alpha, obtaining a consistency coefficient of 0.967 and 0.932, in the academic semesters 2020-I and 2020-II, respectively. The data collected by means of a virtual questionnaire were processed in the SPSS software transformed into the Likert scale. The results obtained show a high perception among electronic engineering students in reference to the professional skills they have acquired. There is an increase in satisfaction from 66.78% (2020-I) to 74.26% (2020-II) between the first and second academic semester, despite the abrupt and unexpected change in the teaching-learning modality, in the second semester achieved a greater adaptation of this process. However, the online learning methodology must continue to be improved so that students perceive with greater satisfaction that they possess the skills to solve problems and cases related to the specialty (I2) and the skills to master practical professional skills (I8).

  • The role of self-learning in the practical training of preschool teachers

    • Authors: Larysa Zdanevych; Leonida Pisotska, Nataliia Honchar, Nataliia Мyskova, Nataliia Kazakova
      Abstract: The article examines conditions for effective implementation of self-learning program in the training preschool teachers. The following research methods were used: pedagogical experiment, testing, observation, activity analysis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Student’s t-test. An independent variable of the experiment was the self-learning program of preschool teachers developed through quality feedback and self-analysis. The professional competence of preschool teachers is studied through a system of components: motivational, cognitive, activity and reflective.. Motivational and reflective components are less developed than cognitive and activity ones. It was found that the self-learning program is more effective for the development of cognitive, activity and reflective components, while the motivational component was less developed. It is established that the basic conditions for the effectiveness of professional self-learning is feedback from the program developer and ensuring quality pedagogical reflection of one’s actions. The following blocks of material were the most problematic for the assimilation of in the developed course: the physiological characteristics of children, speech and thinking of preschoolers, various aspects of the organization of learning and play in preschool education. The obtained data can be used in the self-learning practice of preschool teachers and students to stimulate professional development. Further prospects for the study of the problem include improving the self-learning program for implementation in higher educational institutions (HEIs). It is important to optimize the ways of development of preschool teachers’ pedagogical reflection. The development of standardized forms of assessment of acquired competencies is worth noting.

  • A review of teachers’ assessment literacy proficiency measures

    • Authors: geng juanjuan; Nurahimah Mohd Yusoff
      Abstract: At present, there are several literature reviews on teachers’ assessment literacy (AL). However, little attention has been paid to a systematic analysis of AL measures. Hence, the purpose of the current literature review is to focus on analyzing the measures of teachers’ AL proficiency from 1991 to 2021. Across the contexts, 28 quantitative tools (i.e., questionnaires and tests) are collected. Among them, 10 are designed to investigate overall AL proficiency and 18 are constructed to examine the sub-categories of AL proficiency among teachers. Each instrument is analyzed from format, guiding framework, item characteristics, targeting population, and psychometric quality. Results show that the current AL measures derive more from instrumental than social-cultural conceptualization, examine more on sub-categories than the overall proficiency level, target more at in-service teachers than pre-service teachers, and focus more on elementary and middle education than pre- or higher education. Recommendations for further studies are also proposed to orient the subsequent efforts in AL measure development.

  • Single Subject Research in Mild mentally Retarded Students: Increasing the
           Ability to Recognize Numbers with the help of Number Card Media

    • Authors: I Istiqomah; Rika Yuliani, Rooselyna Ekawati, Sri Adi Widodo
      Abstract: Mentally retarded is a mental disorder with an IQ between 55-70, besides that mentally retarded children are only able to think concretely. For this reason, learning mathematics for mentally retarded students requires learning media that can bridge abstract mathematical material with the abilities of mentally retarded children who are only able to think concretely. The objective of this study was to improve the recognition of 1-20 numbers using number cards for students with mild mental retardation. The research used is single subject research method with basic design non reversal. Study subjects were selected based on a purposive sampling technique, as the researcher had to look for subjects with mild mental retardation. Data collection techniques use documentation to find out subjects with mild mental retardation characteristics, and tests to determine the subject's ability to recognize numbers 1-20. The results of this study indicate that the number card media can improve the ability of mild mentally retarded students to recognize numbers 1-20. This can be seen from the average in the baseline phase of 39 with a percentage of the ability to recognize numbers of 33.3%, and in the intervention phase of 74.44 with a percentage of the ability to recognize numbers of 88.89%.

  • Implementation of ESD in Geography Subjects Among Universiti Pendidikan
           Sultan Idris Trainee Teachers

    • Authors: Sumayyah Aimi Mohd Najib
      Abstract: Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) is a truly positive measure. With the existence of ESD, the students are made aware of the positive values. Therefore, ESD is crucial to be inculcated among students. If the students are provided with in-depth knowledge related to Sustainable development, hence it is not impossible for the sustainable development concept to come true. ESD in general refers to a process to develop any concerns, abilities, attitudes and values among the students. Besides using religious approaches to help provide awareness to students of the issues related to the environment, this still requires a solution through education.

  • Examining religiosity to determine student ethical behavior intention

    • Authors: Nurdian Susilowati; Ida Nur Aeni, Angga Pandu Wijaya
      Abstract: Religiousity remains a black box in the educational research. Only few studies conduct regarding religiousity, therefore need exploration in theme of student religiousity. This article aims to determine the direct and indirect effects of attitude, injunctive norm, moral norm, and perceived behavioral control on student's ethical behavioral intention through religiosity. There are 273 students as the samples of the study. Data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed using path analysis. The results found that injunctive norm, perceived behavioral control, and religiosity had direct effects on ethical behavioral intention. Meanwhile, attitude and moral norms did not have any direct effect on ethical behavioral intention. Furthermore, religiosity became the mediating variable of attitude, injunctive norm, moral norm, perceived behavioral control on ethical behavioral intention. The paper can explain black box that found religiosity or faith and belief would affect someone’s attitude to behave well. Moreover, attitude and moral norm would create good behavior when it was reinforced by strong religiosity.

  • The Spatial Thinking Process of the Field-Dependent Students in
           Reconstructing the Geometrical Concept

    • Authors: Henry Suryo Bintoro; Yohanes Leonardus Sukestiyarno, Mulyono Mulyono, Walid Walid
      Abstract: Reconstructing geometrical concepts requires a spatial thinking process, so the spatial thinking process will be correct and complete. The phenomena of cognitive style differences cause different perceptions and thinking activities to solve geometric problems. This qualitative-explorative research describes the spatial thinking process of students with field-dependent cognitive styles in reconstructing the concept of spatial geometry based on the theory of Action-Process-Object-Schema (APOS). The research subjects were 27 students and obtained five students with field-dependent cognitive styles. The researchers used a purposive sampling technique from the subjects with a certain consideration. The researchers selected a student that met the three elements of spatial thinking and the five indicators of spatial ability. This research collected the data with interviews, documentation, and GEFT. The analyzing techniques used data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and concluding. The results were the spatial thinking process of the field-dependent students had a spatial category. The indications were (1) inaccuracy in the elements of representational thinking, (2) the inaccuracy of spatial perception indicators, and (3) not using de-encapsulation mental mechanisms.

    • Authors: Kham Tran; Cuong Huy Pham, Nam Thanh Tran, Lan Thi Thai Nguyen, Nhung Thi Kim Nguyen
      Abstract: Background: Social research has attracted significant attention in Vietnam during recent years with more questions and discussions about how to promote the research outputs and publications in this area; however there is limited information about the knowledge and attitudes of social researchers for research ethics in Vietnam. This paper aims to assess the knowledge and attitudes of social researchers about research ethics in Vietnam.Methods: A survey with 1200 questionnaires, through convenience sampling, was sent either printed copies or email to social researchers in the universities and research institutions in Vietnam.Results: Our response rate was 65% (782), with mean age: 35.9 years (sd=.307). The results show that around one fifth had been trained with research ethics (23.5%), which led to significant responses to the "do not know" about the research ethics principles and research ethics committee with 14.3% and 55.3%, respectively. Despite such few experiences on the research ethics, the participants presented a positive understanding of the general principles of research ethics and positive attitudes to the importance of the related general ethics principles to social research in Vietnam. Such understandings and attitudes also led to the readiness to apply the research ethics values and principles while there are no formal ethical guidelines in Vietnam social research.Conclusion: These findings suggest that Vietnamese social researchers understood most critical ethics principles in social research and expect formal ethical guidelines

  • The Use of Peer Role-Play in Doctor-Patient Communication Skills Training
           for Medical Students: A Systematic Review

    • Authors: Bella Stevanny; Rizma Adlia Syakurah
      Abstract: The quality of communication is directly related to patient satisfaction and can influence health outcomes. However, most doctors still have poor communication skills. Systematic literature search in PubMed, Cochrane, and Science Direct was conducted to retrieve studies reporting the use of peer role-play for doctor-patient communication skills training in medical students. The quality of each study was assessed using the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) critical appraisal checklist. As much as 1620 studies were obtained from electronic database search and screening of reference lists. After removing irrelevant studies and duplicates, one RCT and eight quasi-experimental studies were included in this systematic review. Peer role-play was perceived to be as useful as simulated patients (SP) training methods with comparable post-intervention OSCE scores. Majority of students preferred PRP for learning communication skills over didactic lectures. The limitation of this review is the scarcity of eligible studies, high variability in the PRP programs across studies, and the lack of grey literature included. Peer role-play might be a cost-effective method to train doctor-patient communication skills with comparable results with the expensive use of simulated patients. However, further study is needed to support this statement

  • Cyberchondria in Filipino Teacher Education Students

    • Authors: Reynold Padagas; Butch Stephen Duay, Jill Dalisay
      Abstract:     The Internet-dense ecosystem has dramatically influenced the health-seeking behaviors of any population group. Likewise, exposure to a large amount of information increases health anxiety resulting in cyberchondria. This cross-sectional research study examined the level of cyberchondria among 179 teacher education students. Generally, the findings revealed that the students' overall level of cyberchondria was moderate, including its subscales, namely, excessiveness, distress, reassurance, and compulsion subscales. However, relatively higher correlations existed between excessiveness and compulsion and between distress and compulsion. Notably, gender and program have a very weak relationship with cyberchondria subscales. Meanwhile, the weakest association was between the programs enrolled by the students and cyberchondria subscales. Interestingly, students' age and year level have slightly higher but weak associations to all cyberchondria subscales, especially excessiveness and distress subscales. As an intervention, an interdisciplinary collaboration between teacher education programs and the health-related courses is recommended to promote awareness about cyberchondria, its prevention, and management.

           in the Philippines

    • Authors: Rebecca Rosario Oroña Bercasio
      Abstract: In the Philippines, environmental education is a mandate, and in the higher education level, the teacher education programs and teacher educators are recognized as key players in the reorientation of education to address sustainability [1], hence can serve as context for environmental education.   During the first semester of the 2016-2017 school year this pilot study tested Teacher Education lessons integrated with environmental concepts and values using DENR EE materials among the 2420 third year Teacher Education students in eight institutions of the National Network of Normal Schools (3NS). Data were collected using a validated researcher-made Environmental Values Self-Assessment Method and Environmental Concepts and Principles Test. Qualitative data were collected through class observations, focus group conversations, interviews and authentic student evaluation outputs. The t-test between the pre-test and post-test means (4.838) showed a substantial improvement in the EA test at a level of 0.05 significance across all ten disciplines in eight institutions. The EE mainstreaming in the Teacher Education curriculum using DENR EE materials and researcher-made and/or searched EE materials was found effective in enhancing the level of competence of the students in terms of environmental concepts and principles.  Institutionalization of the mainstreaming of environmental education in the teaching curriculum and the cross-cutting inclusion of EA in higher education programs by national policy is strongly recommended.

  • Determinants of Self-initiated Expatriation. The Paradox of International
           Faculty Migration to Moroccan Universities

    • Authors: Rachid Alami Aroussi; Marc Poulin, Rommel Sergio
      Abstract: This study seeks to highlight key motivational influences for international faculty self-initiated expatriation (SIE) from developed to developing countries. We use the North African country of Morocco as a case illustration. While previous research has focused extensively on south-to-north migration, scant attention has been given to the migration of academic faculty from developed to developing regions despite the increasing level of activity in this area. Against this backdrop, this study provides fresh insights into the push and pulls factors—notably the motivations, expectations, and experiences of faculty who have embarked upon this type of mobility and drawing upon the theoretical lens of SIE. The study revealed that non-economic factors, namely ‘gaining international experience’, ‘raising academic status’ and ‘greater employment opportunities’ are the most important pull factors to migrate while ‘lack of career opportunities’, ‘unsatisfied job’ and ‘underemployment’ are the push factors that influence faculty self-initiated expatriation to Morocco. Our study showed 53.1% overall job satisfaction among expatriates while literature reported unsatisfactory career development and work conditions among local university teachers. Findings attested that expatriate women, in the large majority (89.3%), were unsatisfied with their current job while, on the contrary, men are globally contented (68%). Active local professional network seems to have a significant correlation with expatriate men’s job satisfaction.
