  • Studies on Learning Effects of AR-Assisted and PPT-Based Lectures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: While common, computer presentations given during classroom lectures do not always improve learning effects; thus, this study incorporated three elements into technology-assisted classroom lectures: emphasis, augmentation, and integration. These three elements cannot be implemented simultaneously when using PowerPoint (PPT) presentations during classroom lectures. Therefore, the virtual and physical integration of augmented reality (AR) was employed to establish an assisted course lecturing tool for implementing these three elements. Teachers can refer to important content from textbooks (emphasis) while lecturing, and students can then use an AR device to scan the content and to call out related supplementary materials (augmentation) in facilitating their learning. These scanning and calling out functions of AR enable teachers to integrate technology-assisted tools with textbooks to enhance the effectiveness of classroom lectures. The pre- and posttest quasi-experimental research design was used to determine differences in the learning outcomes of two groups of AR-assisted and PPT-based course lectures. The experimental results indicate that the AR-assisted lecture was significantly more effective than the PPT-based lecture, and a similar result was obtained from a delayed test. According to interviews held with students, during the AR-assisted lecture, the students tended to focus on only one teaching medium and on the textbook content. By contrast, students of the PPT-based lecture became distracted while focusing on two different media sources simultaneously, resulting in the textbook content often being neglected.

  • Influence of Participation and Value Co-creation on Learner Satisfaction
           of MOOCs Learning: Learner Experience Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Learner participation in MOOCs provides learners opportunities to create value through their experience. However, little is known about how their participation affects value co-creation and satisfaction in the learning process. Employing the service-dominant (S-D) logic, the value co-creation theory, and satisfaction theory as the theoretical basics, this study discusses how MOOCs learners acquire value from participation, which furthermore shapes their learning satisfaction. Empirical results from 372 learners suggest that learners’ participation results in a rise in their perceived knowledge value, hedonic value, and social value. Learners’ satisfaction is derived from these value perceptions. The theoretical framework provides novel insights to platform managers in understanding how learners’ participation contributes to value co-creation and how to motivate learners’ satisfaction.

  • A Comparative Study of Mathematics Self-Beliefs between Students
           in Shanghai-China and the USA

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: According to PISA 2012, mathematics self-beliefs involve three dimensions: mathematics self-efficacy, mathematics self-concept and mathematics anxiety. This study utilized the multiple indicators, multiple causes (MIMIC) method, an approach for detecting whether there is a lack of measurement invariance or differential item functioning (DIF), to deal with multiple covariates, multiple dimensions, and ordered categorical variables with threshold structures to study DIF among mathematics self-beliefs items across Shanghai-China (N = 5177) and the USA (N = 4978) from Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2012. The MIMIC approach with mediators was also applied in the study, which helped to detect variables that could account for meaningful partial or complete DIF effects. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), a statistic method that can verify the number of latent traits of the dataset, indicated that the three-factor structure worked for the data. Both robust weighted least square (WLSMV) estimator and robust maximum likelihood (MLR) estimator were used in the parameter estimation to identify items with DIF and quantify the DIF effect size. It was found in the study with MIMIC method that in-school mathematics class periods and out-of-school study hours in PISA 2012 had partial effects on most items with meaningful DIF effects.

  • Can Teachers Be Change Agents' A Critical Analysis of Teacher Images
           in School Reform Policies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The discourse on teachers as agents of school change has recently emerged in educational policies in many countries, emphasizing teacher-led educational reforms. The meaning of this rhetoric is quite vague; its practical meaning is revealed by analyzing how teachers’ roles are normalized in educational policies. With a Foucauldian approach, this study aims to critically analyze teacher images produced and distributed by South Korea’s educational reform policies over the last 20 years. This study addresses two research questions: (1) Under the rhetoric of teachers as agents of school change, what teacher images have been created by Korean educational reform policies over the last 20 years' (2) What are the non-discursive conditions that have led to the establishment of the teacher images presented in educational reform policies' To this end, 94 policy documents from the 5 Korean governments were collected and analyzed. The study results verified a contradictory character of policy discourse in that policies stating teachers as agents of school change appear to empower teachers to reform education, which is not true in reality. The results also revealed complex mechanisms enabling certain policy discourses to be formed by analyzing the formation process of particular teacher images produced by educational policies in relation to non-discursive conditions. Furthermore, this study showed that particular teacher images circulated by educational policies can regulate teachers’ everyday practices, contributing to understanding the way educational policies exert their power. Finally, the implications of the findings were presented.

  • Using English as an International Language for Fluency Development in the
           Internationalised Asian University Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The present study exemplifies the potential of International Corner Speed Chatting activities to enhance English fluency when local students use English as an international language (EIL) with other local as well as international students. For data collection during the activity, classroom observation through video recording and photography was employed; a closed and open-ended questionnaire were administered after the activity. The data analysis results show that this set of activities, incorporating mini presentation, speed chatting, reflection reporting, and group discussion, helped students develop EIL fluency. The fluency activities provided the instructor the opportunity of taking on the roles of planner and guide whilst encouraging learner autonomy. EIL fluency was achieved through maximal repeated effective integrated-skills English speaking and listening across multiple contexts with interlocutors possessing varied linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

  • Parental Responsibilities for Truanting Children: An Analysis of the Laws
           in Australia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper provides an analysis of Australia’s legal provisions and policies regarding truancy. We examine how low frequency truants feature in Australia’s truancy law and policy and highlight similarities and differences in the cultural–legal context between Australian states and territories. Similarities include requirements to attend school from about six to 17 years of age and the legal culpability of (predominantly) the parents for children’s non-attendance. Differences include little consistency in the threshold at which schools in different Australian states and territories are required to intervene once truancy has been identified and disparities in prosecutions and fines. We conclude that harmonising truancy laws in Australia is likely to increase parental understanding and thereby compliance with school attendance laws.

  • Examining Korean Teachers’ Experiences Teaching the Centrally
           Developed Integrated Curriculum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This qualitative study examined seven Korean teachers' experiences teaching the Integrated Curriculum designed by the government. Data were collected through individual narrative interviews with 7 elementary school teachers. Analysis was conducted using transcription, thematic coding, textural and structural descriptions, and a composite description of the essence of the experiences. Interviews revealed that the teachers' experiences varied at the macro and micro level. Although participants saw benefits to integration, including greater engagement of learners, they also spoke of significant obstacles to its implementation, such as lack of support for teachers’ decision making and misalignment with the assessment system. However, once they became more involved in implementing the Integrated Curriculum, they managed to develop strategies to integrate their classroom teaching with other school activities.

  • The Relationship of COVID-19 Student Stress with School Burnout,
           Depression and Subjective Well-Being: Adaptation of the COVID-19 Student
           Stress Scale into Turkish

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: COVID-19 has caused psychological problems in all age groups since it emerged from the first day. One of the most important groups has been affected negatively during the COVID-19 pandemic process are university students. One of the negative situations caused by the pandemic process in university students is student stress caused by COVID-19. To assess stress situations in Italian culture, the COVID-19 student stress scale (CSS-S) has been developed. In this context, the aim of this study was to adapt the CSS-S into Turkish. Another aim of the study was to investigate the direct and indirect relationships of COVID-19 student stress with school burnout, depression and subjective well-being. The participants of the study were 485 Turkish university students. The values obtained with the confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the factor structure of CSS-S is satisfying (χ2/df = 2.99, AGFI = .95, TLI = .93, CFI = .96, IFI = .96, REMSEA = .06, SRMR = .04). Moreover, it was found that school burnout has a mediating role in the relationship between COVID-19 student stress and depression and subjective well-being (χstructure of CSS-S is satisfying/df = 2.41, AGFI = .87, TLI = .91, CFI = .91, IFI = .91, REMSEA = .05, SRMR = .05). These findings imply that psychosocial intervention studies to reduce COVID-19 student stress can reduce students' school burnout and depression. It also implies that these psychosocial intervention studies can have a positive impact on students' subjective well-being.

  • Designing STEM Education in Small Class Teaching Environments: The Hong
           Kong Experience

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article begins with a historical overview of the STEM education policy and related classroom practices in Hong Kong. Against the backdrop that the Hong Kong education authority has been promoting STEM education over the past few years, there has been a pressing need for effective strategies of implementing STEM education in the context of reduced class size classrooms (i.e. small class teaching). With a view to addressing this need, this article strives to exemplify the incorporation of STEM education into small class teaching settings. Intended as a conceptual paper drawing on design approaches for STEM lessons and a small class teaching framework, the article demonstrates the relevance of STEM education to small class teaching. Two illustrative lesson design examples are provided to showcase how the design approaches and framework can be operationalised. In addition, the article also offers a thoughtful discussion concerning the potential challenges of delivering the two sample lessons as well as the coping strategies. It contributes to understanding of STEM education theories and provides a valuable reference for educational practitioners.

  • Emancipating SLA Findings to Inform EFL Textbooks: A Look at Indonesian
           School English Textbooks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Much empirical research on textbook analysis has been undertaken. However, little evidence with regard to the adoption of SLA findings in the textbook analysis was reported, particularly for the Indonesian EFL textbooks. To fill this void, this study aimed at analyzing a textbook endorsed by the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture, “Bahasa Inggris, When English Rings a Bell” revised edition 2017 for grade VII, to reveal as to how the activities in the textbook provide learners with the opportunities that facilitate second language acquisition. We employed content analysis (Mayring, 2000) in this study. Informed by Ellis’ (2016) SLA framework and ten generalizations, the study’s findings portray that all activities receive support from SLA theory. Most activities are output-prompting, and language learning is mostly intentional. In addition, the textbook exposes learners with language input (e.g., target language skills and linguistic forms) exclusively, although they are not required to process the input further (e.g., enacting more social interaction activities). The implication of this study suggests that although second language learning input is penetrated into a textbook, the role of interactional activities in the classroom that bridges the input into practice is worth-considering. Thereby, English teachers are encouraged to innovatively and creatively design learning activities in the class.

  • Fairness in Classroom Assessment: A Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The aim of this study was to identify the components of fair classroom assessment and formulate a conceptual framework for it by following the steps proposed by Okoli and Schabram for a systematic review. For this purpose, three databases including Eric, Elsevier, and Springer were systematically searched. As a result of this research, 39 sub-themes for fair classroom assessment were obtained in the form of 7 themes of "educational fairness", "interactional fairness", "procedural fairness", "distributive fairness", "egalitarian fair assessment", "equitable fair assessment" and "validity". Based on the theoretical definitions provided in the social justice approach and measurement theory, these scattered themes were presented in the form of an integrated and coherent model for fair classroom assessment. This model has a process view of fairness in classroom assessment; thus, the violation of the assessment indicators in each of the stages of "gathering", "using" and "interpreting", in addition to reducing the perception of fairness of one of the seven themes, affects the fair classroom assessment. Also, the violation of fairness in each of these stages affects fairness in the next stage. The presented model will help teachers and professors in recognizing the indicators affecting each of the themes of fairness in the classroom assessment and by increasing their assessment literacy will help them in planning and implementing assessment and educational processes and designing tests that provide a fairer classroom assessment. This model and its concepts can also help assessment researchers to develop a tool for evaluating fairness in classroom assessment and provide the basis for quantitative research to examine the effectiveness of the paths identified in the model.

           English Oral Presentations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The present study attempted to probe into the role of teacher feedback in an online learning environment during the COVID-19 pandemic. It aimed to investigate the characteristics and effectiveness of teacher feedback on online business English presentations and also to explore EFL learners’ attitudes toward teacher feedback. The participants were one class of 24 sophomores majoring in Business English. By analyzing data from transcriptions of teacher feedback on presentation rehearsals, assessment scores, questionnaires, and students’ self-reflective journals, the study found that teacher feedback was focused on both content- and delivery-related components, but new sub-components were added to delivery-related teacher feedback, such as technology use, timing, and teamwork. It also proved the positive effect of teacher feedback on improving students’ oral presentation quality in various aspects. Additionally, it was found the participants held quite positive attitudes toward teacher feedback. However, some issues also arose in an online learning context. Therefore, pedagogical implications were provided based on the research findings and in response to the challenges of online education.

This study reports on an inquiry into 16 Chinese EFL teachers’ feedback changes during the pandemic, with a focus on whether and how the teachers changed their feedback practice when a range of digital assessment tools and online instructional technologies were introduced to them. Data were gathered through semi-structured interviews and artifacts, including the course materials and screen recordings of teaching in online virtual classrooms. A qualitative and interpretive analysis reveals three patterns of changes in the teachers’ feedback-giving practice. The first pattern was positive changes in the teachers’ feedback-giving motivation, design, and awareness of the relational nature of teacher feedback, and the second pattern was reduction in formative feedback activities, difficulties in securing student response, and increased physical and emotional feedback workload. The third pattern was unchanged, underpinned by a conception of feedback as information transmission. A range of factors influencing such changes, including student readiness to uptake feedback, were also revealed. The findings highlight the importance of teacher feedback literacy in mediating the changes and call for attention to how constructive feedback-giving practices can be better supported.

  • Implementing Classroom-Based Assessment for Young EFL Learners in the
           Chinese Context: A Case Study

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: While there is extensive literature on how classroom-based assessment (CBA) can be effectively put into practice, little is known about its implementation in L2 contexts, especially in the young English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) learner context. This study endeavored to investigate teachers’ CBA practices and factors that might exert influences on them. A purposive sample of three EFL teachers from two primary schools participated in this case study. Our thematic analysis revealed that the potential of CBA in supporting young EFL learners’ learning had not been fulfilled. The teachers failed to clarify such objectives and success criteria to their students. Despite the use of multiple assessments, the teachers relied heavily on formal assessments, with student-involving assessments being less frequently used. Moreover, there was a heavy reliance on norm-referenced assessment and evaluative feedback. It was also found that teachers’ CBA practices faced complex challenges related to teacher, student, context and system factors. Practical implications for how CBA can be effectively implemented in similar EFL contexts are discussed.

  • Chinese University Students’ L2 Writing Feedback Orientation and
           Self-Regulated Learning Writing Strategies in Online Teaching During
           COVID-19

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This mixed-method study explored Chinese university students’ orientations towards written corrective feedback (WCF) and their use of self-regulated learning (SRL) writing strategies in online English writing courses during COVID-19. A questionnaire and semi-structured interviews were administered to 311 and 12 students, respectively. Results showed that during COVID-19, students generally held positive attitudes towards online WCF and teachers offered more tutorials and feedback that could be reviewed indefinitely, which created a comfortable learning space for students. Findings demonstrate that students used fewer social behaviour strategies than other strategies and the effectiveness of peer interaction was limited by peers’ relatively low writing proficiency, tendency to give compliments, and the inconveniences of online communication. Students’ feedback-seeking orientation was found to be positively associated with SRL writing strategies; the online interactions between teachers and students in relation to teachers’ feedback motivated students to engage more in their subsequent writing practices. Pedagogical implications are discussed.

  • Teacher Engagement with Online Formative Assessment in EFL Writing During
           COVID-19 Pandemic: The Case of China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Although previous studies have examined the impact of online formative assessment on second language learners’ writing development, scant attention has been paid to how writing teachers engage with online formative assessment and the influencing factors. By exploring three English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) writing teachers’ engagement with online formative assessment during COVID-19 in three universities in China, the qualitative case study identified three types of teacher engagement: disturbing, auxiliary, and integral, embodied by their varied emotional, physical-cognitive, and social investment in the formative use of information communication and technology in writing assessment. These individualized engagements were primarily influenced by teachers’ beliefs, digital literacies, and learning/teaching experiences, and mediated by relevant contextual and technological factors. Implications are provided for supporting EFL writing teachers’ engagement with online formative assessment.

  • Using Learning-Oriented Online Assessment to Foster Students’ Feedback
           Literacy in L2 Writing During COVID-19 Pandemic: A Case of Misalignment
           Between Micro- and Macro- Contexts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Online learning has emerged as the “new norm” due to the COVID-19 crisis. Compared with institutions’ and teachers’ responses to online teaching, little is known about students’ perceived influence of online assessment practices. The present study explored the perceived effects of learning-oriented online assessment on L2 students’ feedback literacy and individual differences in feedback literacy development from an ecological perspective. We used multiple sources of data, including a survey on student feedback literacy, semi-structured interviews with two focal students, drafts produced by them and related teacher feedback, and supplementary data reflecting the online assessment practices in the course. Results demonstrated that the students held less favorable opinions of the online mode of learning in promoting feedback literacy. However, they perceived positively the development of feedback literacy in the aspects of appreciating feedback, developing judgements, and taking actions. Considerable variations were identified in the development of two focal students’ feedback literacy, especially in the aspects of managing affects and taking actions. The findings revealed the negative influence of misalignment between micro- and macro- factors on student feedback literacy and how such a misalignment interacted with learner factors to influence individual students’ feedback literacy when learning-oriented assessment (LOA) was implemented during COVID-19. The paper proposed a fine-grained model for developing student feedback literacy through learning-oriented online assessment. With a special focus on misalignment, the model provided insights into the interactional dynamics among learners, classroom, and larger contexts in using LOA to enhance student feedback literacy online. Relevant pedagogical implications for developing student feedback literacy within and beyond COVID-19 were discussed.

  • Examining Changing Assessment Practices in Online Teaching: A
           Multiple-Case Study of EFL School Teachers in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper reports on the results from a multiple-case study of how EFL school teachers in China coped with online assessment for 10 weeks caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. We looked into the online assessment practices of seven teachers from seven regions of China, through individual interview, teachers’ journals, instructional designs for online teaching, and online classroom observation. The findings reveal that the participants went through a transition from neglecting assessment to overdoing assessment in their online teaching process. Whilst they used a range of online assessment methods, they did not systematically incorporate online assessment into their online curricula. Analysis shows that this issue is most likely to result from teachers’ lack of understanding of the nature of online assessment as an intrinsic component of curriculum and a major means of enhancing students’ learning. Implications will be discussed.
