Abstract

Peripheral intravenous insertion (PIV) is one of the most common clinical procedures which nurses receive little formal training. It is said that more than a quarter of first-time insertion rate (FTIR) fail (Hess 2010), thus, patient experience is at risk if this is not performed by a trained staff. This study aimed to explore if a Structured Educational Program (SEP) was effective to increase a hospital’s FTIR which has a failing international benchmark scores. It used a quasi-experimental design and pre-experimental one-group pretest post-test to examine the pre and post-test data set among 160 respondents. It was found out that the most of respondents are Filipinos in their 30’s who have bachelor’s degree. They have a decade or less of experience; have had no PIV training in their home country; and have less than five daily insertions. It was revealed that the SEP was effective knowledge and skills improvement. Ages, nationality, years of experience, and specialization were found to be related to improve knowledge; while nationality, licensure exam ratings, frequency of PIV insertions, and relevant trainings were associated on an enhanced skill.

Abstract

The study examined the adversity quotient, school management style and job performance of public elementary school heads in Cabanatuan City, Philippines. Total population sampling was utilized among 38 public elementary school heads in the district. Anchored on Adversity Quotient Theory (Stoltz, 2000) and Situational Leadership Theory (Hersey & Blanchard, 2001), both processes measured how educational leader reacts and resolves within tough school related problems encountered. These lenses offered structure in looking at the four dimensions of adversity quotient in relation to leadership style. Survey questionnaire on Adversity Response Profile (ARP), Leadership Style, and Office/Individual Performance Commitment Response (OPCR) were utilized.  With two-semester period of data consolidation, Pearson r product moment correlation assisted in the analysis of data.  Results disclosed that, in adversity quotient and job performance, school heads having high degree of adversity quotient- control most likely to perform better in instructional leadership and quality standard for basic education program. Recommendations on the opportunity of assimilating adversity quotient and school management style in their current school head qualifications be considered to further improve organizational performance in the educational management system.

Abstract

Verbal fluency (VF) task is a tool that has been utilized in bilingual studies to measure executive performance of bilingual individuals. While many of the previous studies compared bilingual speakers’ performance in VF to their monolingual counterparts, this descriptive study compares exclusively the cross-linguistic VF performance of Indonesian bilinguals in their first (L1), second (L2), and third language (L3). The aim of this study was to see whether or not there were any differences in the result of their performance in each of their languages. The participants of the current study were 25 non-native bilingual university students in Indonesia who speak English in at least intermediate level. Javanese is the L1 of the participants. Indonesian is their L2, whereas English is their L3. In the VF task, the participants were requested to generate, in a rapid fashion, semantic category and phonemic category in their L1, L2, and L3. The results showed that the participants’ VF performance in English and standard Indonesian were significantly higher (p < .05) than Javanese. However, no significant difference was indicated when comparing the semantic category and phonemic category in all three languages. The findings of this study will be used as a basis for a forthcoming study on VF performance of Indonesian bilinguals.

Abstract

Ecosystem concepts are not a science that is far from daily life. Therefore, teachers need an innovation that can support students’ mastery of the ecosystem concept. This study aims to analyze the influence of the CirGi (Cooperative Integrated Reading, Composition, and Guided Inquiry) learning model on the learners’ ecosystem concept mastery. This research uses a quasi-experiment method with a pre-post control group design with a sample of 104 students. Data collection is carried out using an instrument of ecosystem concept mastery in the form of multiple choices so that questions could cover all the materials. The data analysis technique used is an independent sample t-test. The conclusion of this study is that there is a significant influence of CirGi’s learning model on the learners’ mastery of ecosystem concept. The application of CirGi learning model on ecosystem material can revive reading activities along with environmental awareness.

Abstract

This study investigated eight pre-service English teachers’ first experiences in conducting mini-research analyzed using four stages of Kolb Experiential Learning Cycle, consisting of Concrete Experience (CE), Reflective Observation (RO), Abstract Conceptualisation (AC), and Active Experimentation (AE) stages. It was conducted to fill the void in studies in the area of research methods instruction in the English as Second Language (ESL) context. The study used qualitative analysis on secondary data in the forms of student reflections. Through Thematic Analysis, this study found five themes. From three themes of experiences, it was found that the participants’ experiences were mainly in the first three stages of the cycle, CE, RO, and AC. Only two of the five themes suggested that the participants had achieved, to certain extent, AE stage, characterized with decision-making and problem solving, which may be attributed to the participants’ being beginner researchers who still needed more experiences in research.

Abstract

The study aimed to reveal how the teacher performance evaluation methods implemented by a private Catholic senior high school in Malang, East Java facilitated its English teachers towards their professional developments. This study employed a case study approach. The data from the participants - three senior English language teachers, two students, the school principal, vice principal, the head of Human Resources Development Section and supervisor from foundation were collected through semi-structured interviews. All data were analyzed qualitatively. The results revealed that the school employed five evaluation methods, namely, evaluation by students, self-evaluation, and evaluation by peers, evaluation by superior and supervision. The methods employed by the school provided positive impacts on the English teachers’ professional development, although the results of the evaluations did not serve as the main guideline for the school to include the teachers in development activities. The school carried out evaluation to ensure its teacher performance standard and the instruments to conduct the evaluation were always reviewed and adjusted to school culture and authentic conditions. The researchers suggest that the teachers should have their initiatives and build their agency to develop themselves professionally.
