Purpose of Study: There is a new initiative at the University of Belgrade, Serbia, to explore computing technology underpinnings of the practice of TEA (computing underpinnings of the practice [CUP] of TEA), at universities and in schools in the country. Sources of Evidence: The CUP of TEA initiative starts from the current insight into current practices of assessment processes in different educational institutions. The data collected include assessment process descriptions from these institutions, specification of technologies used for the purpose, and specification of the educational profiles of participants in the process. Main Argument: The CUP of TEA initiative develops: A novel and comprehensive framework for TEA to lay the foundation for systematic, accurate, effective, and innovative application and use of TEA in educational institutions; specifically designated sets of information and communication technology (ICT) tools and services – ICT toolsets – that support practical application of TEA; several application cases that implement the TEA framework and use different ICT toolsets for TEA in different educational contexts, showcasing the integration of best TEA practices into curricula; and a set of policies that enable educational institutions and their teachers to officially establish the use of the framework for TEA in their courses and daily work. The CUP of TEA initiative covers both formative and summative assessment and supports formal, non-formal, and informal learning and assessment. Conclusions: The ultimate goal of the initiative is not just better, faster, and more informative assessment. It is the creation of a robust teaching and learning assessment approach that improves and advances the quality and efficiency of education.</p> <p>Keywords: Technology Enhanced Assessment; assessment processes; application cases</p> 2019-07-31T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## A study relationship attitude toward physics, motivation, and character discipline students senior high school, in Indonesia 2019-09-07T18:15:07+01:00 Darmaji Darmaji Astalini Astalini Dwi Agus Kurniawan Rahmat Perdana <p>This research to see students’ attitude toward in physics learning, student motivation in physics learning, discipline student in physics learning, and the relationship between students’ motivation and attitudes toward physics subject. Using correlational quantitative research with correlational design, the subjects of the study were students of 612 students in senior high school Batanghari and Muaro Jambi district Provence Jambi, Indonesia. Instruments research is questionnaires attitude, motivation, and discipline. Analytical techniques are using descriptive statistics and inferential. The results the three indicators of student attitudes show good results, and for motivation and discipline students also show good results, with these results, there is a relationship between attitudes, motivation, and student discipline. Recommendation, therefore, it is very important for teachers to implement learning that fosters attitudes, motivation, and discipline of students in learning.</p> <p>Keywords: Attitude toward physics, motivation, discipline;</p> 2019-07-31T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Perceptions of candidate teachers about teaching pronunciation in ELT classes 2019-09-07T18:15:06+01:00 Fatih Yavuz Kubra Keser <p>Pronunciation is regarded as one of the most significant parts to be developed in gaining speaking skills in English Language Teaching (ELT) classes. For the development of pronunciation skills, a lot of different approaches and ways have been employed. In choosing these ways and approaches, the perspectives of language teachers have constituted an important part. Thus, this study is designed with the aim of getting a deeper understanding of the perspectives of students from ELT department about pronunciation problems and pronunciation teaching. The research was designed on the basis of quantitative research design. A questionnaire adopted from Ducate and Lomicka (2009) was employed to learn the perspectives of ELT department students about pronunciation. Results have revealed that teacher candidates believe that they can improve pronunciation skills and pronunciation is as essential as other skills in ELT.</p> 2019-07-31T00:00:00+01:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
