Abstract

The replication study examines whether the students-perceived role of English in the completion of their studies is also shared by their instructors, and whether increasing the sample size would also increase the validity coefficients of the instruments used as Graduate Program Admission Tests at the State University of Malang Graduate Program. New data were collected using questionnaires and documents. The result shows that, inspite of the lack of relationship between students English and their GPA, both students and instructors believe that English has an important role in the completion of graduate studies. It also indicates that the increase of sample size has decreased the validity coeffients of all the instruments

Abstract

The program evaluation reported in this article covers three batches of participants, from 1996 through 1997, sponsored by the Directorate General of Higher Education projects to prepare faculty members of teacher training institutions for overseas studies. The result outcomes could be achieved when the initial English competence requirred for participating in the program was at least at the Pre-Advanced level. The criterion validity of the TOEFL-Equivalent test developed by the program was assured, and the test could, therefore, be used as a good predictor of the International TOEFL. Other recommendations are also given for the improvement of the planning and implementation of the program in the future

Abstract

This study was conducted to find out the profile of exemplary English teachers at secondary schools. Data were collected through observations, interviews, and questionnaires. The study was conducted in four towns, covering exemplary teachers in one senior high school and three junior high schools. The subjects were exemplary in terms of their active participation in the Teachers Forum (MGMP), and their roles in the professional development of both themselves and their colleagues. This study was done mainly to find out (1) the professional competences of the exemplary teachers in each town and (2) how they achieve the competences. The collected data were analyzed qualitatively by the usual process of sorting, coding, and analyzing. The findings reveal that the subjects in three of the four towns have all the four competences (subject matter, pedagogical, social and personal competences), with the personal competence being the most influential in shaping them as professional and exemplary teachers.  From the findings a profile of the professional competences of the exemplary English teachers at secondary schools is developed. Keywords:      professional competence, exemplary teacher, profile.

Abstract

The change of the status of the National Exam (NE) from high-stakes testing to low-stakes testing inspired the researchers to explore its effects on the teaching and learning of English. This qualitative exploratory study tried to investigate how English teachers taught their students to prepare NE at senior high schools in two different functions by involving six English teachers from three schools varying in the quality in terms of the schools’ demography, academic achievement, and facilities. The study was also strengthened by a set of secondary data from the results of the NE in 2015. The result of study involving the six teachers shows that the higher the quality of the schools the less they are affected by the change of the functions of the NE. The result of the analysis involving the secondary data shows that in spite of the change of its function, the NE tends to remain a high-stakes testing.Keywords: High-Stake Testing, Low-Stake Testing, National Exam, English UJIAN NASIONAL DI INDONESIA DAN IMPLIKASINYA TERHADAP PEMBELAJARAN BAHASA INGGRISAbstrakPerubahan fungsi Ujian Nasional (UN) dari “high-stakes testing” menjadi “low-stakes testing” mendorong penulis untuk melakukan penelitian eksploratif terhadap persamaan dan perbedaan UN dalam fungsinya yang berbeda dengan mengkaji dampaknya pada proses belajar-mengajar mata pelajaran Bahasa Inggris. Penulis mengkaji bagaimana para guru mengajar Bahasa Inggris dalam mempersiapkan para siswa menghadapi UN sebelum dan setelah ada perubahan kebijakan. Penelitian eksploratif ini dilaksanakan dengan mewawancarai enam guru bahasa Inggris dari tiga sekolah yang mutunya berbeda-beda. Wawancara terhadap para guru dilakukan menjelang pelaksanaan UN 2015. Penelitian ini dilengkapi dengan data sekunder berupa hasil UN 2015 yang memperkuat temuan penelitian. Hasilnya menunjukkan bahwa sekolah yang mutunya lebih rendah cenderung lebih banyak terpengaruh oleh perubahan status UN  daripada sekolah yang mutunya lebih tinggi dalam hal mempersiapkan para siswanya menghadapi UN. Hasil analisis data sekunder, rendahnya aspek kejujuran dalam UN, menunjukkan UN masih dianggap sebagai “high-stakes testing”.Kata kunci: tes beresiko tinggi, tes beresiko rendah, ujian nasional, bahasa inggris

Abstract

This study explores the effect of working memory capacity (WMC) and content familiarity (CF) on EFL reading comprehension. Seventy senior students from a private university in Malang, Indonesia, were involved in the study, having been selected based on their English proficiency of at least pre-advanced level. These students were required to complete a reading span test for the WMC and a multiple-choice reading test based on CF. The findings of this study show that there is no interaction effect between WMC as the main independent variable and CF as the moderator variable; this implies that the students with higher WMC comprehend texts better than those with lower WMC, regardless of whether they are familiar or not with the texts.
