Checking the validity of the data in this study is time triangulation. The indicator of student errors is based on the Kastolan stages, namely procedural errors, conceptual errors, and technical errors. The results of this study are students with an impulsive cognitive style tend to have more errors than students with a reflective cognitive style. Internal factors that cause errors are because students are less thorough, lack of practice questions, do not understand the prerequisite material, do not understand the concept of solving linear inequality problems of two variables, and do not understand the basic concepts of elimination and substitution methods, while the external factor is the lack of time given to students. so that students have not finished working on the questions

It is a qualitative research with closed-questions questionnaire distributed to students after applying the self-regulated learning phases on reading comprehension activity. 15 of 20 students agreed that time-allotment helps them to finish the tasks on time in Forethought and Planning phase. 12 students disagreed that writing the journal regularly in Monitoring phase could help them choose which strategy worked best for them. The first half could not decide whether they can get their strengths and weaknesses by evaluating their performance in Reflection phase and the other half agreed on the statement. 20 students agreed that the Forethought and Planning phase was easy to follow. 15 students disagreed that Performance Monitoring was easy to follow. 13 students strongly disagreed that this phase was easy.  The Forethought and Planning Phase of SRL was the easiest to follow.

Abstract

In a perfectly competitive labour market, the demand for skills is the duty of employers to supply the necessary skills. Knowledge and abilities of graduate competencies should represent the needs of the industry. Such qualities include both academic and generic skills in their chosen professions needed for work. To prepare completely for the unpredicted and ever-changing nature of the workplace, graduates need a range of skills specific to labour-employers. The aim of this pilot study is to identify whether the polytechnic building graduates have the right job skills from the perspective of employers. The cross-sectional survey was adopted to select 60 experts who responded to 169 items questionnaire, purposeful sampling technique was used. The items comprised of components of both hard and soft job skills. Inferential statistics and Rasch measurement model were used to analyse construct reliability and to determine fit statistics, point measurement correlation and standard residual. The result showed that the validity of the instrument's contents values was almost perfectly accepted. In addition, employers were unanimous in their views on the essentials of hard and soft skills in establishing a competency framework.  The feasibility study will have a huge impact on researchers as it will direct them in carrying out the main analysis relating to the development of competences for employment.

Abstract

Literary works are frequently used to express human expression through words, making literary works one of the unique mediums to express these expressions. The uniqueness lies within the language used to construct the story itself. Therefore, this study aims to uncover the factors that make a literary work great through formalism and defamiliarization theory, furthermore uncovering the impact of the factors on the story. Using a qualitative research method specifically close reading, this study describes how the strength of a short story The Tell-Tale Heart written by Edgar Allan Poe according to both formalism and defamiliarization theory can contribute to the construction of the story. The construction of the story relies on its tension which is delivered through the use of its imageries, form/structure, parallelism, etc. It can be concluded that the possession of the formalism elements helps the story to shape its nuance and its atmospheric storytelling
